It’s so hard to believe that our biggest girl turns six today. I think I may always find it hard to believe, every birthday. It just seems like she is growing up so fast. Sometimes it feels too fast, like I catch my breath and think “Oh goodness! I must enjoy these days, the moments! Before long she will be doing her own thing….” And then she throws a fit about something and I no longer remember that she is growing up fast. Ha.
One of my favorite recent pictures of her. With her cousin and buddy, Jax.

Pumkins, changing leaves, cooler temps, soups and chili, our anniversary and Kennedy’s Birthday, holiday’s coming, and so much more… fall is here! And it’s my favorite season. But it’s busy!! Finding the balance seems to be a little harder this time of year. Which is one reason I haven’t blogged much lately. I feel like blogging is not so popular anymore, but I am hanging in there, not wanting to give it up just yet. So, here I am with a quick little post on a few things we are loving these days…
Cheeseburger Soup. This is a huge favorite with every single person in our family. I actually blogged about it earlier this year, but it deserves another shout-out, because anything that my whole family loves is a good thing! Click HERE for the recipe!
Artforkidshub.com This site is awesome! It has step-by-step video tutorials on how to draw different things. The kids love it and so do I! The guy who does the video’s always has a kid with him, and he is funny and keeps my kids laughing and engaged. Love it.
And lastly, a trip to the Pumpkin Barn did not disappoint….
I hope your fall is off to a fabulous start! Thanks for looking
Alicia chose our focus this time, and she explained that her idea was for us to take photo’s of things people would not find beautiful. Maybe something that would go un-noticed even, yet the photo itself grab the viewer. For us to really see the beauty in the everyday. Well I loved this focus. I often use a hashtag on instagram ‘seeing the beauty’. So I was excited to shoot that way for Click of the Wild. Because it’s a busy time of year, I honestly didn’t put time and effort into it like I wanted too. I got my shot while driving to a shoot with a friend, and the funny thing is, as we drove up on this scene she said “that looks awful!” at the same time I was thinking “cool”! haha! I told her and we laughed at how we saw two entirely different things!
These pine tree’s had been stripped of all their branches…

Molly chose our focus word this time around (for Click of the Wild — Click here to see more about this little project) and the first thing I thought of was my flower beds. I mean really, they scream ‘abandonment’! But, then I moved on to a structural approach. A little more pleasing to the eye, and photographic
I have always thought this chimney standing alone at an old homeplace was beautiful. So it seemed fitting that I capture it. Then, as I took the photo, a lady came up and asked what I was doing, as it turns out this place belongs to her Uncle. We chatted for a while and she suggested that I also take a photo of a house just down the street, it was her Dads home. And she felt like it would fit the focus word well. She was right… I love both!

Linden chose ”Home” for our focus these past two weeks. And I have to be honest, I did not make time to get the shot - or shots - that I wanted. I loved the focus word, and I had so many idea’s, but I didn’t make the time to capture them.
I did grab this shot of Tenley dancing, and while it may not shout ‘home!’ to most, it really does to me.
As the saying goes, Home is where the heart is. And I fully believe that. Home is also where the dress-up dresses and spinning, dancing girls are in my life. My home.
We dance and play and live and love. And so much more. But these days - months - of life seem to be filled with dancing and dress-up dresses. And, right now, it’s one of the many ways I see and think of ‘home’.
I happened to see these two photo’s last week, and I thought of how they are both a good example of how I see ‘home’ too. These were taken last December…
