Part One Saturday's WITL

Every picture is worth a thousand words. Each one of these pictures tells at least one story. I have one story, the people or person in the story could have another story. I love that about pictures! What they say to me may be completely different from what they say to anyone reading this too.

A photo of me. I may not like my picture being taken since I have gained all this weight, but I know that I need to be in some photos for my children to have.

This picture tells the story of John being home more, even if it means more household chores. It is also the story of how much Finn loves to be close to Daddy!

Finn's sweet, chubby legs and feet. Oh the stories Finn could probably tell.

He he! This picture makes me laugh because Hunter was so aggrvated that Finn was trying to reach his cereal and all Hunter ever does is aggravate "Jacky." It is so fun to see him get a dose of his own medicine.

Mine and Jack's feet. Wow, if they could tell a story this week they would tell you all bout Georgetown Ky, the schools, the stores, the gas station...etc.

The girls finally getting outside during a light drizzle before the down pour began. The story for me is one of sisterhood!

The story of the boys' neck ties. I love how they go from long to short. I think of it as somewhat representing knowlege and life. The longest tie belongs to John, the oldes man in our family and the shortest to Finn. I know it may be a stretch for this metaphor, but that is the story this photo says to me.

I love that John is more available now. He came over when I was attempting to iron and just took over so I could go get ready for his Baptism.

Brothers! Best friends! Hunter may love Jack and little too much :)

This is the first suit I have ever bought for any of my sons. I love how sweet Finn looks in it and I found it for a steal at a children's resale shop. The girls said he looked like a mini mobster.

This picture tells the story of an amazing relationship! They may be twelve years apart in age, but they are really close to each other.

This picture tells the story of our life, literally!

John all dressed up driving us to the Church! So many things come to mind when I look at this photo, but mostly I think he looks really handsome.

The above five pictures are all from John's Baptism! It was beautiful! The talks were amazing, the girls did a great job with the opening and closing prayers. The Spirit was so strong all day! I am so proud of John and the commitment he has made. I am grateful for the friends that he has made down here (whom I am meeting and loving also) and all the support they gave to him while we were in Michigan. It is the small gestures that really mean the most and can change a person's life. It is something to always keep in mind.

Just the photos!

Thursday's WITL

It definitely happens that some days are packed full of photos and others are seriously lacking. This week was a little hard to stay focused, mostly because of all the running we had to do to get registered for school. Here is a look at our Thursday.

Starting the morning off right with a vintage cartoon, the Smurfs! I love this cartoon.

Also starting the morning with some bug catching. Thankfully we have Madasyn here during the day to keep us safe from the scary bugs. Today she is catching a cricket to take back outside.

It is about 9 in the morning and already this hot.? YIKES!

The Georgetown hospital. My home for our first week here. Jack & I went in today and found our my stay, without insurance, would be paid for in full. I am so grateful that I can't even put it into words.

Finally was able to register Jack & Hunter for school. Now just to get them both physicals, eye exams, and dental exams.


And a nap!

Hunter wanting a piggy back ride from his brother who weighs about 12 pounds more than him. Probably not going to work out buddy.

Sunny D with lunch. Jack & I ate a little later, thanks to the errands we ran.


Brothers playing together, until Finn gets really irritated that Hunter has taken his toy.

Again with the hands...this picture really makes me think about possibilities. The possiblity that he could play music with these hands, be a surgeon with these hands, be an athlete with these hands, hold his own child with these hands...the possibilities are endless really.

Dinner prep. We had the Easy Chicken Bake from the back of the Stove Top box, I have to double the recipe, and green beans. I still cannot believe how much food we consume here.

Family dinner. We really try to do this every single night unless there is an activity that is early. I am grateful to be able to have these dinners again. When John was working in the dealership we rarely, if ever ate dinner as a family

Took the oldest 3 to a sale at a local consignment store in Georgetown. As we pulled into town there was also a band playing. This small town atmosphere is actually really cool!

Bengals training camp is about 5 minutes from our house. This is obviously a big deal for the city? John is really looking forward to getting a car full of friends and some of our children to go and watch a session and maybe get some autographs :)

Had some of my hair cut off! I am thinking I still need more of the bulk taken out. It is so hot here all the time that there is just nopoint in me having long hair because all I do is put it in a pony tail.

Mr. Finn and I ended up having a pretty late night. He is finally cutting some molars and has been really sad about it. He cried for awhile so I just sat snuggling him as best I could until he finally wanted to lay down. Needless
