Life has been pretty much routine, I enjoy the quietness and the easiness during the day while the kids are at school and Curt is still sleeping.
I putter around, cleaning here and cleaning there, completely immersed in my life as a homemaker.
But the minute these two amazing little human beings get home from school, I sigh a breath of relief, because I've missed them so much when they're away. It's like I feel my life is complete again.
Over peanut butter and honey sandwiches and sips of apple juice, we talk about the day. What they did, what they learned, even what they ate for lunch. I'm super curious and I want to know everything and I'm glad they indulge me in their sweet and sometimes hilarious stories.

I grabbed the camera and we headed out into the backyard. Just as the sun was starting to set showering everything in a orange/pinkish glow, I began snapping pictures as they played on the swing set.
Some of the best photos are obtained when you get down to their level and close up and personal. I love their expressions.
And so go my days at home, filled with love, filled with simplicity and filled with the normal day to day life. There's nothing out of the ordinary here folks, we have our ups and downs and we have our sick days and sad days and we have those days where everyone is cranky and the level of noise is high......there's chaos and craziness, but in the middle of it all there is an enormous amount of love in this family and for that I'm truly thankful and blessed.
