Audrey likes to have her picture taken most of the time. She likes to help me come up with creative poses and to try new things.Â Since we were experimenting with black and white this time, not all of her creativity turned out.Â So here are the two best pictures from her photo shoot. Check out her favorite picture here.

As we watch Mark turn into a man, we will give him time to practice skills men need to be providers. With Daddy’s help, he builtÂ raised gardens, but he filled and maintained the gardens mostly by himself this summer. He has outdoor chores that he loves doing. He has told me often he would rather be outside moving wood then working inside.

He is starting second grade this year.Â But even more exciting is his gapped tooth smile and two other teeth that are wiggly!
Mark and I were outside trying to get pictures of some baby robins. I went inside to discover Megan sitting on the bathroom sink by herself. I asked her who left her up there.Â Smiling hugely, she told me “all by myself, need down.” After hearing “you can’t do that, your too little” all the time, I think she was proud that she figured out she isn’t too little to wash her own hands.
