Oh my summer girl, you turned six today! How the time has flown. You are amazingly joyful, enthusiastic, daring, sweet, and sometimes even shy. I love you Delaney Rose. Happy day!

This Moment…The Tree

Every year our family goes to cut down our Christmas tree. I know this is a moment they will always remember.

There have been sunny time, snowy times, rainy times, windy time, and this year it was just kind of cloudy.

TOSHIBA CAMCORDER

Off to find a tree.

The search continues.

Trees, trees everywhere and none that are just right.

Little Moments…Forts

During the day my kids spend a lot of time building forts. They build forts in their rooms, they build forts in the living room, they build forts in the basement, and sometimes they even build forts in the kitchen. I love how they use all sorts of things for their creations, but all the forts seem to use blankets, and books.

This fort is in Killian’s room. Note the use of books to hold up the roof.

Here is the living room fort in progress.

Peek-a-boo!

Second fort in the living room, everyone needs their own….

even the dog 🙂

Little Moments

Little Moments are pieces of our day that make our life we live wonderful. I believe these little moments of each day shape us and therefore, shape our lives.

 

 

 

Face painting and pre-Halloween ideas.

 

 

The cute blue bird is our school bell. We ring this sweet bell to start our homeschool day. The candle is lit when we are doing work at the table. These are two things that anchor our school day.

 

 

A walk in the rain, you can’t beat that!

Little Moments…Boat Ride

Little Moments are pieces of our day that make our life we live wonderful. I believe these little moments of each day shape us and therefore, shape our lives.

The only memory I can be sure my kids will take into adulthood is riding on the boat. This is something we do often in the summer and all the the little moments on the boat I am sure will add up to lasting memories and a love for the water and boating throughout their lives. We spent Sunday out on the beautiful Waupaca Chain of Lakes in Central Wisconsin for the last boat ride of the year. Here are a few snap shots of us on the boat.

Delaney and Liam in their spots at the front of the boat.

Lunch on the boat.

Killian driving the boat, very serious work.

Beautiful!

Delaney on Otter Lake.

One last fast boat ride before putting the boat away for the season. It was a great summer!
