Day 2 Summer Vacay & Photo Edits

4 kids home from school.   Every.   Day. :)

Overall, I am surprised at how well they have been doing. They have been getting along overall and we've only had a few little issues to work out. Thank goodness for neighbor-kid, Josh, today!!

Yesterday was kind of tough for the kids because it had rained all night so going outside was not an option. Let's just say, we're making up for lost time today! They have been outside since right after breakfast and I have been able to get a lot of stuff done! It's not easy to referee from inside, but in turn, I have finished Emily & Jordan's pictures from their session the other day.

And if you follow me at all on Facebook, you know that I have had a bit of a rough morning with my son. He aims to be the funny one-- at the expense of spending a majority of his day in timeout. I'm still learning how to deal with that.


As I google parenting, thought I might share a portion of my day that I have actually been proud of..


Here's some sneak-peaks at Emily & Jordan's photo shoot from the other day. :)








 I'm thinking about running a promotion for the months of June & July..... not sure what it will be yet, but stay tuned for that. 

I'd write more, but I have to go find the CapriSun thief... Ha. Oh, how my troubles have changed this year!

It's a BEAUTIFUL day for a bike ride!

It's a big week in the Anderson/Albert household! All 3 boys learned how to ride their bikes without training wheels!!! I am telling you, balance bikes ARE amazing. :)
Jack is typically such a scaredy-cat when it comes to trying things. He lingers on the side of caution. But NOOOOO, not while riding bikes. He would fall off, run into one of the other boys, hit the mailboxes.... He has scrapes on his knees, dirt on his hands and a sweaty, sweaty head. I am so proud of him for sticking to it and teaching himself (with a little coaching from Mommy & Jake) how to ride a bike.
This is one very proud Mommy!

And speaking of learning new things! Apparently all you have to do to get Anne Marie to ride a balance bike is buy her a pretty purple helmet. The deal was she could wear the helmet if she rode one of the big bikes. We are attempting to keep her off the tricycle. She really slows us down when riding that thing!
Either way, the girl has picked it up in no time and is doing awesome.

So proud of my little blonde babes. <3
