I have been missing this blog lately.  I miss the slow-it-down time that is involved in thinking about what's going on and the picture posting - documentary style.  It appears that I have internet schizophrenia between blogger here and my newish tumblr account. I guess that I'll hold on to both. Depending on what varying situation allows or doesn't allow me to be sitting in front of a computer. my Tumblr allows me to use my iphone to quickly post a pic here and there. It's quite handy. When I can sit down in front of a computer, however, I prefer to be able to get on the ol' blog with all of its history. Because instances of sitting down in front a computer seem to be few and far between these days, we''ll just have to see...

God is kind, and I am blessed, and I feel that this summer has been fruitful.  I have been able to think a lot about God and my calling as a mama and my kids in particular.   Not a lot is coming out yet, but a lot has gone in, and I'm still processing.  I haven't written about our educational adventures here, but we're homeschooling Colson this year and and we're involved with a great little classical Christian program called Classical Conversations, of which I am extremely grateful.  Maybe more on that later.

The days tick by so quickly.  As I look around at my babies I'm finding that we are out of one phase and into the next lickity-split.  Colson is now 6!  What a big guy.  Being his mother has taught me so much about what it means to be a Christian.  Lewis is now a little boy, friend to Colson and big brother to Caroline.  and Caroline.  :)  that little person that brings instant joy to my heart.  Thank you God.  She is going on 2 this fall.  two!  Two is not baby.

Well, lastly I wanted to post a few portraits of these gifts that have taught me what it means to be a servant and to cheerfully give my life away.  Their "fat souls" make every sacrifice so worth it.
