“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Zoe: whistlin’ away…
Ezra: barbecuing the best burgers…
Zion: decided to make brownies for dessert one night…
Axel: legos, always…
Ottilie: captured by the sunshine…

well right when we have begun school we are “down” again with another feverish babe in the house. it slows us down a bit, because i know how quickly it can spread with a large family, but we are cozy in blankets, and books, and movies, and snacks, and loads of water and juice, and she is slowly getting better – but most of all happy as can be.  it takes a lot to keep her down, or any of our kids for that matter.  children’s energy astounds me. i am constantly amazed at how much they can keep. on. going. and at the same time, it’s motivating to me to keep on going, to push through, even when someone’s sick and the house is in disarray and things on the list aren’t getting done, and the tv is on way more than ever, and cereal may be the meal for breakfast and dinner (not complaining, i personally love cereal for dinner), and on and on. overall, none of those things really matter. it’s what my heart knows is important is this sweet little family of ours that we have been so abundantly blessed with. energy, joy, happiness, laughter… even if it’s coupled with sickness… those are just a few of the things i love that fill our home every day.
