Hello world. This is my attempt to try and start blogging again 🙂 I know there are some broken links and such, but tech support Billy is working on it. Things are going great! We just started another school year. Carrington is at a governor’s school focusing on ballet, and Ellie, Finn, and Deacon are […]
I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted. My last post was written the night before Billy and I left for Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We went to visit one of our church’s mission partners, Haiti Outreach Ministries. We met some seriously great people. People in Haiti are really no different than people here, […]
And we’re off in the morning. To Haiti. Exciting stuff. Billy and I are going to miss the kids like crazy, we love them so much. Just thought I’d post some pictures from the last month or so. I’ve been shooting in black and white a lot, which is fun and different.
September?! Sheesh. We are starting school on Tuesday, along with the public schools around here. I’m very excited about the year, and the kids are too, especially Deacon. We went to the beach in early August with my side of the family. When we got back we had a bunch of video footage, so Billy […]
We’ve really been enjoying our summer days. The kids play long and hard, knees are scraped and kissed and made better, tired bodies fall into heavy sleep at night. The girls did Peter Pan and Wendy, a girl turned eight, a baby boy turned four, family came to town, we left town, more family came […]
The Cookie from Martin Pictures on Vimeo. Billy and I filmed this little video for a contest. It had to be under two minutes, the theme was “stand-off”. We lost. At least it makes us all laugh when we see it 🙂 And we sort of like this making movies thing.
I have lots of updating to do on this ol’ blog, but I just wanted to throw these pictures up. Because I really, really want to remember these days. When my little guys are so, well, little. I want to remember them zipping themselves together into jackets. I want to remember the sound of their […]
Reading Radical by David Platt. Convicted on so many levels. Where to go from here?? It’s a snow day here. The kids played outside for a little while, but snow in March is a little less exciting than snow in December! Then they painted while I made banana pudding (which tasted fantastic). We’ve been working […]
Spontaneity is alive and well here. Through a series of coincidental events, Monday morning found us flying out of Richmond and into NYC. If I hadn’t taken pictures, I would have woken up yesterday morning and seriously wondered if the trip had even happened at all. It was a complete whirlwind. (Learning never stops. Especially […]
We’ve been working really hard in 2013. Of course, there has been some serious kitchen-table work: And some serious not-at-the-kitchen-table work: Last week Ellie and Finn were suddenly fascinated with dinosaurs, so of course we hit up the library first, but we also went up to the Natural History Museum to see the dinosaur exhibit.
