3 Birds and a Butterfly

{this is a part of a series in 2013, a portrait of each of my children *almost* every week of this year}

Nearing the end of May

School is out for the summer! And wow, that means that you're a 3rd grader now. I haven't had the time to absorb the fact that you're now in 3rd grade and that you said goodbye to everyone at school on Friday for a wonderfully long summer but what I can say is that I'm so proud of you and the incredible year that you had. You worked so hard and became so confident and independent. Your teacher had such a big part to play in that happening for you and I'm grateful to her for that. You also started with drum lessons and now we embark on a musical journey with drummer #2. This is a summer filled with new experiences for you and I can't wait to see it all unfold. Each summer has its own story and this one is sure to be awesome. 

This helmet is an early birthday present from your grandparents, who are in Australia for a while and have to miss your big day. You were hoping for a motorcycle helmet but this made you just as happy in the end. It was this or otherwise, a stuffie. You're a child of extremes and that's a perfect example of it!

Elliot -
 You've been asking dad to teach you the guitar and so this was one of your little jam sessions. Sweetness. 

Scarlet -
 This is the 6th day of your little life and I took a few photos of you in a toy doll bed that I found at a thrift store a week before you were born. You fit into it so perfectly. And you, little girl, are absolute perfection. You are such an indescribably tremendous gift to us. We are a blessed family.
