While my sister was here (notice the past tense.....sigh), we had a little mini photo shoot with the kiddos. Here are a few of the pictures....
chocolate. I speak her language.
Charlotte, who, by the way, will be four next week!
Larissa, who will be turning seven at the end of the month. Looking back at these photos, made me realize how much she is growing up into a young girl....
Alaina, who is five. The sun really bothers her eyes, so that's why she is squinting in some of the pictures. My super imaginative one..
Landon Ray. He will be eight months next week. And he is officially on the move. Much to his sisters chagrin! And my delight.....(I've been warning them!!)
"Get me away from all these girls, mom!!"
love twirly skirts and cowboy boots...
These are just a few of the pictures my sister got of the kids. She does such a great job. And is very patient, which when dealing with kids, is an absolute must. Alyssa and my brother left for their LONG drive back to Pennsylvania last Monday. It's 36 hours. A.long.time. An e t e r n i t y with children. Not really, but you get the picture.
So this week I have been finding a new routine. And realizing just how much help she had been to me. I've been falling into bed every night totally exhausted. And missing the company during the day. One of the most challenging things is to find a new order of doing things for school. With my sister here, it was easy peasy. She worked with one and I worked with the other. Now I am trying to figure out how to juggle two at the same time. It will come together. Sometime. Until then, I just keep truckin' along!
