On Tuesday, I got to go to the movies in the middle of the day...with my two favorite guys...my dad and Jase. We went to Hidden Figures. There was a part where one of the women was so grateful to her husband because he did all he could to help her go back to school to get her masters to work for NASA as an engineer, and for a second I held a grudge because I remember the first few years out of college, everything we had went towards Jason's clinics and all I wanted was to take ONE class or workshop or to be able to set up a real studio, and I feel like not being able to learn more and go farther with photography is kind of what made me be done with it. I watched friend after friend pass me up because they went to workshops, or they got a studio with great lighting, and I went 13 years in photography without a single class or workshop. But then SO quickly after holding that few second grudge, I realized he's helped me reach my #1 dream and only important dream....all of these amazing kids, and the fun houses (and some not so fun houses) we've lived in. We've had so many adventures. A nd although I would have loved to have been settled about 6 moves ago, I'm grateful for the friends, changes, challenges and lessons we've been given with each move.
Try kept warm in his little fort.
This baby! He is the center of our world...all of us. I spent a good part of my evenings just watching the older kids love Tru and make him laugh. Jase snapped these pictures of me and Tru yesterday after church. He loves to be tickeled around his neck. He busts up laughing. When the kids are loving on him I throw out there "why don't we have another baby?". I get a mixed response...actually it's 5 yeses and one no....Jaden. haha!
This is just baby Tru in his favorite spot eating his favorite food...which are both the same as his big brother Pearcen's at that age.
started over again today. ;(
Today is MLK jr. day. To celebrate, we worked on the playhouse some more, we helped grandpa put his Christmas decorations away, we watched Storks, we cleaned, went to piano lessons, I made a bench and a shelf, went to aerobics and we'll probably watch Last man standing after dinner and I might say how great civil rights are somewhere in the evening.
