The Wedding

Linnea was a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding last month.
I brought my camera but only got some pictures after the ceremony.
It wasn't until I sat down in the pew that I actually took stock of my situation;
I brought seven children ages 9, 8, 6, 5, 3, 2, and 10 months to a wedding 
where there would be no other adult or teen who could help me.
I sort of broke out in a cold sweat,
then reminded myself that I had put on my big girl pants and that I could do this.
I had to.

This was taken as the newly married couple exited the church.
Elizabeth wanted to stand next to Linnea, of course.
For the next week and half, Elizabeth told anyone she could that Linnea got married.
It was her way of saying "Linnea was in a wedding" but
three year olds have a way of losing things in translation.

 Those lashes!!!

 The bubbles were a lot of fun for my crew!

 Abram, like a moth to flame, was drawn to the black dirt
next to the sidwalk.
In light khaki shorts.

 Christopher was an excellent helper to me.


 These lovely ladies...
Cece and Linnea

 Our dear friend Amy was also in the wedding.
I love how this picture turned out of both of them.

 Ivy and Ruby wanted to each take turns with 
Linnea's bouquet.

This boy, though.
Can you stand how cute he is?!?!

Sometimes Things Get In the Way

My posts have been few and far between, haven't they...
many is the time I have sat down at the computer to put together
a post and then been called away because of a spill or a tumble
or some other pressing need.

More often, though, I sit to write and I can't seem to 
piece my thoughts together well enough to hit publish.

There's this big thing in the way
and I just can't seem to write around it.
This thing has been a big part of my life 
and so much hearkens back to it
or is currently affected by it...
I can't discuss it publicly and so it ends up
that I don't discuss much of anything publicly.

I've got some pictures that I plan to post--
because I've got great subject material--
I just have to get them all uploaded so I can retrieve them here.

I took some pictures at the county fair this year,
the kids have all been to camp,
VBS was great,
and summer here in MN has been just lovely.

I really do hope to be able to work around this thing 
that's in my way.
I hope you stick around for when I do.
