I don’t believe I’ve shown this photo of Rory yet. It is one of my favorite. It’s just so pitiful and funny to me. She dumped some potting soil over her head, for who knows what reason, and I had the camera out, so…
Today I am sitting outside with my three youngest children, enjoying the summer heat. (Drew is off on an extended bike ride with Kevin.) I am finding myself feeling very thankful for my family and my home, and my hard-working hubby. We are a small percentage of the world that gets to enjoy carefree moments like this one. We are blessed, indeed.
Another self portrait with all of the kiddos. It may or may not be surprising to some how hard it is to coordinate a shot like this with four wiggly and “hard of hearing” little kids.
Rory likes to slide!
I have been working out for about 2 months straight now, and once a week Kevin and I go running in the hills out behind our house. I’m proud to say that I’ve been able to run 3 miles without stopping several times now. (I know that’s not much compared to what some people can run, but it’s a big deal for me.)
Back in May, we participated in the Glenwood Springs MS Walk, in honor of my mom. We were actually able raise over $800, which was a surprise for me. (I was/am our team’s captain.) We will be making this a yearly thing. And actually, you can still donate, or even join our team if you want. Summer’s Skippers MS Walk Page
My mom and dad. My mom walks with the poles to help her stay stable. She also tends to weave from side to side, so we were joking that she actually walked twice as far as the rest of us. Haha. We’re just thankful that she’s able to walk!
