214/365... I've moved joy

I must admit that I have not been faithful to my Simple Joys blog. I went through a time that I just needed a little break.


I have continued to take a picture a day. Because capturing the simple joys is what it is all about.

So, I'm going to take the time and catch up. I will catch up. I will complete this project that I've started.

And I will complete the 2011 Simple Joys at my new blog home...

Can't wait for you to see it!

And because I can't post without a picture...
2 August -10

Hopefully that made you want to see more.

I've moved joy.

146/365...Preschool and Kindergarten Graduates joy

Seems like just yesterday that I took this picture of my babies.

Her first day of preschool and his first day of kindergarten.
26 May -3

And today was her last day of preschool and his last day of kindergarten.

It happened in a blink.

Makes me a little teary eyed.
26 May -1

It was a full day of "Last Day" Celebrations. We ended the day with closing Preschool program and Kindergarten Graduation.

Baby Girl has perfected looking adorable. Even if she didn't sing a word and swished her dress while on stage.
26 May -2

And my sweet little man graduated Kindergarten. He sang and performed his role in the class play perfectly.

And I got a little teary eyed.

OK. I was a blubbering mess.

If only I could freeze time.

So very proud of you, Carter and Regan!

Preschool and Kindergarten Graduates joy.

Six years ago, God blessed our lives with a healthy, sweet baby boy. The years have flown by in a blink.

Carter, you have such a kind heart and a sweet soul. You are such a blessing in our lives. We thank God every single day for blessing us and trusting us to raise you, our son. We are so very grateful.

143/365... Nap joy

I was inspired by a fellow photographer friend, Lynne, to sneak into my boys' room while they were napping to capture my babies sleeping.

I'm so very glad that I did.
23 May -1

They grow far too quickly.

Nap joy.

142/365... Lazy day joy

Some days are lazy. Just plain lazy.

Lazy day joy.

22 May

In other news... my thoughts and prayers go out to so many people who were affected by the tornado devastation in Missouri. Makes me extra thankful that our time in the crawlspace was for nothing more serious than some wind, thunder, and lightening.

141/365... Day of goodness joy

It was a day full of goodness.

My son scored 3 goals during his soccer game.

A little nap.

We celebrated the 10 year anniversary of my cousin and her husband with family and friends.

Lots of hugging. Lots of celebrating. Lots of smiling.

I love days like this.

Day full of goodness day.
