11 Months.

Our little man is not so little anymore. Today marks 11 months! In the past few weeks he FINALLY figured out how to crawl, and out! He's into EVERYTHING! Including his new favorite activity-pulling books off of shelves and throwing them. This photo shoot was a little more challenging this month-he was so squirmy!
Happy 11 Months Cai. Stop growing SO FAST!

Can I be Honest?

Can I be honest? I wasn't really looking forward to this summer. My first thought everyday as school neared the end was 'I'm going to have ALL 3 home...everyday...until August...'. Shame on me, right? I had a negative attitude. I wasn't looking for the joy in being able to stay home with my kids. I was forgetting the blessing that it was and I felt bad...ashamed...and then started feeling sorry for myself. AND THEN God kicked me in the pants. I started reading/studying the book 'Unglued' by Lysa Terkeurst with a group of ladies and was convicted. So many days i was becoming 'unglued'...not always outwardly, but inside. My heart wasn't right and i wasn't being a blessing to my children. So, what to do? The thing i always FORGET to do: PRAY. With prayer my heart and attitude have been changing AND these two below are starting to like their mom again ;)
Have you heard the song 'Human' by Natalie Grant? If you havn't you should. It makes me realize i need God's grace everyday whether i'm 'unglued' or not.

Piano Recital #3.

It's hard to believe this is Ava's third piano recital. I'm amazed at her progress, so much so, i let her take the summer off. While the students played piano, the other two snacked and crawled around on the floor. Hard to keep a 3 and 10 month old still!
