Can you believe summer is already over! I thought this summer would be more fun then what it was. I mean don't get me wrong I had a great summer... but it ended quicker then I could imagine. I look back and I hardly took any pictures of my kids this summer, nor did I spend a lot of time with them this summer. I missed out on camping trips because I chose to work... I guess it may have finally kicked in that I neglected memories for money. What are your struggles with working and running a household.
I hold no claim to faim when it comes to multi tasking... in fact that is probably my biggest downfall. I am a perfectionist and when I sit down to do something I don't want to be interrupted or bothered. I want to get it done and get it done right... My question is how do you amazing business women balance work and kids? How can I have the best of both worlds?
I am sad that I have neglected my personal blog... I miss all my blogging friends... I hope you miss me just as much! Ha Ha!
But on the plus side I think my kids enjoyed the time away from the camera. I really think they miss it because now when I get the camera out (which is usually out the door for a photo shoot of another family) my boys jump in front of me and ask me to take pictures of them!
Well here are some pictures of my boys on their 1st day of school. Jacob started 2nd grade (I can hear you all gasping saying... What! your old enough to have a 2nd grader! You look like your 15... not almost 30!) Oh I so wish you are saying that! Feeling old these days. Ryan started kindergarten... and Madi... started enjoying her time off from her brothers for 3 hours a day.
Here is Jacob getting ready to ride his way to 2nd grade (I have more news to share on this for a later blog post... I already got a call from the principle for Jacob... any guesses on what for?)
Oh my beautiful grass.. it is so green and lush... and so- so neglected. Jacob started his way to 2nd grade and Adda had such a hard time seeing him go... she followed him halfway there! Boys best friend!
Later that day got Ryan ready for his 1st day of afternoon kindergarten. He got the same teacher as Jacob! Woot Woot!
My daughter had to have her own lunchbox when we went school shopping. She takes it with her everywhere and likes to stuff it full of toys when we walk to school.... oh did I mention she even thought it would make a great horse? Got the picture to prove it.
and the kindergarten line up.... Must admit... I felt a slight tear... just briefly when I walked away from my baby boy.... then I went home and Madi took a nap while I enjoyed a nice hot cup of coffee and proofed photos... then I realized that I can get so much more done when I am two kids down and magically that tear... disappeared.
