InstaFriday .... on Monday

standing in line at the grocery store on a sunday afternoon... the scenery was nice :)
have you ever seen blue orchid's? i haven't. these were beautiful.
we have a very full butterfly house now. 12 painted ladies, and one HUGE monarch.
daddy helping corb get suited up for saturday's soccer game.
adam made this delicious dinner friday night. chili rellenos, homemade refried beans, spanish rice and guacamole. it was so so good!
especially yummy since this has been what most our dinners have looked like all week.
practice packing for Africa is NOT going very well. i don't pack light at all.
i think BLT's are one of my favorite meals ever. can't wait for those garden fresh maters.
carried our own seat to church today.
founder's day in dripping was lots of fun. celebrating God with other churches in the community.
and the hot dog afterwards was pretty darn good too!

random day

100 days until the summer Olympics in London! i can't wait to watch. :)

don't you love the US Olympic team clothing by Ralph Lauren. So classy and americana! Go team USA!!

fun swimming playdate last week. had to make a collage out of photos to say goodbye to picnik. i'm gonna miss that free photo editing software. :(

"uncle" sent the boys some new caterpillars a week or so ago for their butterfly garden. watching them weave their coccoon and transform into beautiful "flutterbyes" is so cool! we just moved them to their garden a few days ago. butterflies very soon! thanks uncle

field of blue {almost 6 year old photos}

my favorite photographer elle met us at this great field of bluebonnets in south austin. excited to go back before they are all gone.
it's rare to find a field that is public, or a great patch that isn't on the side of the highway. this place is perfect.

i'm absolutely silly for stripe clothes right now. their shirts were perfect.
miss elle was so patient and funny, helping the boys have a good time out there.
i can't wait to see the beautiful images she took!
then a little fun shirt change... super super heros

catching up on last night's Mad Men.... wow, it's crazy good.

good bye march

i love taking pictures. capturing the moment. freezing time.
here are some shots i got with my phone camera.

photo albums my parents kept while we were growing up were inspiring. and at times such a source of comfort. when things were crazy and out of sorts in life, I could pick one off the built in shelf in the den and thumb through shots of happier times. those great family vacations and holidays. visits with the grandparents.

i have taken thousands of pictures already this year between my phone and DSLR and point and shoot. BUT none have i put into a photo album... yet.
gotta print more often, put them in the albums for us to enjoy now, and scrapbook them as i can.
sign of new life on the blackberry bush

thankfully he is not in malaysia right now. but he's definitely not sitting around the house. working LONG hours and playing referee more than twice a week. taking his dinner to go.

the boys fell asleep on the way to dance class yesterday. after a long day at school they could still use a nap.

hard at playthere is that sweet milk dud baby again.
i wish i'd had this book to read 25 years ago. really insightful.
i pray my heart, my actions, my words, my manners be serving to His purpose.
green beans!grean beans! so excited for our gardens this year. looking really good so far.

moving more. at the YMCA.
palm sunday

be blessed!!
