We had a lovely time in Abq this past week. I plan to share our trip through a series of photographs. I also had some beautiful shoots while I was there that I am in the process of editing.

These kids are petty lucky that their Po has an airplane that they can play on. They had fun climbing in and out and on this one.

7/52 Kid Of The Day

I know. I had to include both of my boy who was "Kid Of The Day" at school. Don't you dare tell him the sun did not shine at all today!

The View From Here

She is often on my lap, hindering me from doing much else. But, these baby curls will fade as fast as the time so I am content to hold her and admire the view.

Beautiful Morning

The weather has been so beautiful here lately. Dare I say it because we all know we have a few months of gloom left before spring.
The other morning, it had rained the night before and the trees were glowing because the sun was hitting the water droplets just perfectly. I was up before the kids, as usual and I ran out to capture the beauty that I was witnessing. I looked behind me and Miss Fina had woke up and was standing in the door way all sleepy eyed and curious. She walked out into the morning light and I didn't hesitate to capture her in this moment. She was in awe of the birds flying around and the bright sunshine coming through the trees. Cooper woke up shortly after and I was able to get only a few shots of him, he was not nearly as captivated by the beautiful morning. He walked out wrapped in a quilt and wanted to get back inside to snuggle on the couch.

It was a beautiful morning and I will treasure these photos forever. They will always bring me back to this moment, sleepy eyes, bed head, and babies in pj's.

Some Thoughts On School

Anyone who knows me knows that I have been completely consumed with the decision about weather or not we should send Cooper to kindergarten in the fall. He has a late birthday so if he went to kindy he would be of the youngest of the bunch. This has been heavily on my mind. Then, once we start talking about school, the question of "what school" comes into play. Decisions, decisions. I have asked anyone who will answer what they think we should do. I have talked to Coopers teacher multiple times. Doug and I have had many, many conversations about what is best. I have toured schools, read articles about holding kids back, looked and thought about pros and cons of public vs private school (which is silly because sending our children to private really isn't sustainable for us). It is giving me a headache. But, I am happy to say that we have decided to wait for kindergarten and I am so relieved. Cooper will have one more year to be a child, one more year at home with us, one more year to grow and be ready for the world of school. Luckily, there are a lot of options for young 5's who are not ready to go to kindy. The only "kindy" he may go to is one at a co op school here, a school that is very relaxed. If he did that, he would do regular kindy in 2013. That's all. I just wanted to get it off my chest.
