I walked in the front door this afternoon and the light coming in this kitchen window was so pretty. These roses opened up today and they are so pretty and smell so good.
I couldn't resist taking out my camera and getting just one picture before my "to-do list" taking over.
I put Summer to bed this evening thinking she was completely asleep and as I was closing her door she said, "love you, mama". It doesn't get better than that.
p.s. Happy 11th Anniversary to my David.

Little Friends

One of the cutest things for me to see as a mom has been my kids developing little friendships. Meet Miss Cova. She is Summer's partner in crime. My friend Kelly (Cova's mom) has three kids, two are about the same ages as Summer and Forrest. These girls do almost everything together. I had Cova over yesterday and it was so cute to watch the two of them interact. Whenever they see each other they run straight into a hug. Together they laugh at almost anything. They are learning the art of friendship. One of my favorite lines from Winnie the Pooh is when Pooh says to Christopher Robbin, "the best part of the day is when you and me become we". I think that sums-up these two little buddies.

Hey Dude

You're my dude. And as you grow up, I promise to build you up to be all things fantastic and amazing.
I love you more than life.

Schultz Kids

The first thing Summer and Forrest usually do the minute we walk in after school is start taking their school uniforms and shoes off to change into "cozy clothes". There's always a trail of clothes from our garage door to their bedrooms. Then they come down to the kitchen table to finish their homework. After I check their homework and they've had their afternoon snack, they take off for outside. I wasted no time getting right down to business when I saw a little package on our front porch. I quickly opened it, loaded my card and zoom lens into the camera. To say that I am excited would be an understatement. I'm glad i got this one. The wait was worth it.
I love these little Schultz kids.

Boys Club

I sold my old camera. I ordered a new one. And then it got recalled. That is the reason for me not taking many photos this summer. I see things as photographs in my mind and not being able to capture them is the worst. My new camera is finally being sent out today. I am so anxious to get it. I have had my camera on my phone which is what I have had to rely on. I also ordered new lens and I cannot wait to play with it.
Isn't this cutest thing ever? It melts me. The picture above is of my Forrest hanging out with his daddy one morning building an airplane out of legos. He calls it "The Boys Club". I personally think it's incredibly cute. He loves, talks and dreams of legos. He's the sweetest little boy around. It's true. I want to just bottle him up. I'll post some of my pictures from my phone from this summer. I don't want them to get lost on my computer. My little kids are growing up too fast.
