Hello, sharing my WITL pictures from Monday with you today. So glad to have this first week of changes, back to school and almost birthdays in our album. Today was the first day of school but not for this girl! Renee had the early shift at her job at Giant Eagle, nice that she was up early but weird to send her off to work and not school with the other two. She starts college next week so excited for this new chapter beginning for her.
Look at these cuties!! Sam has grown so much this summer, love seeing him be like the bigger brother now and not so little. Summer loves that he's taller and hugs him constantly. Summer is starting her senior year and Sam is in the 8th grade now! They got up and ready with no problem today. Actually had 15 mts of sitting around they got ready so fast.
we came back in to wait for Sam's bus and Lucky was already whining about their leaving. Summer sat and gave her some love before they left. Lucky stayed by my side today and I really had to coax her to go outside and not be so sad. I missed the kids too, more than I thought I would and wish we still had a few more weeks together.
LOVE how this picture turned out, I always try to include this part of the yard in each WITL. Not sure why but it's my favorite spot every season and this year seeing the sunflowers so tall and pretty makes me happy. Lucky was supposed to be in this but she moved at the last second.
I headed to the store later that morning after a visit from my sister and doing some chores. I'm keeping the receipt from this trip and adding it in the album, fun to add any paper things to help tell the story.
back at home again and went outside to enjoy the fresh air with Lucky. It was actually too hot by then and we came in soon after taking this.
Laundry finishing up in Sam's room, trying to get me in the photos and using my timer today was fun and crazy. Took me a few tries in the photos above and the others I took today, thankful that Ali encourages us to do this.
Love that I got this without Summer knowing, not sure what she was smiling about but happy to see that smile of hers. Renee got off work just in time to pick up Summer!
Rich came home in time for me to walk with him and Lucky before heading out to my Bible Study class. YAY for Sam coming out with us, love getting this picture of how tall Sam is getting next to Rich now. He will probably pass Rich sometime this fall or next year I'm thinking. We hung out for a good 10mts talking and kicking soccer ball to each other, love these moments.
When I got home, got caught up with the kids and Rich then started putting Sam to bed. I remembered then then that I wanted to capture a fun family photo each day if I can. So this is what we got for today, missing Kristin's feet but hope to get her on the other days.
Happy today went pretty good for our first day of changes around here, it's new and I don't like changes or new but it felt good to get day one done.
Thank you Ali for this wonderful project and letting us share it with you. Thankful for all you inspire me to do with this project and to tell our stories. Good luck to everyone else doing this too, excited to see your photos and stories. Thanks for visiting here and see you tomorrow for more of our WITL.
