18 months

What's that?

Em's actually posting something new on her blog?!?!?!

Yes, internet. That is right. I'm back.

And so is this absolutely adorable face:

No, it has not been 18 months since I've posted a personal post, but that IS how old the J man is now. And boy, he is a busy boy!

Here's a rundown of our summer so far:
Warm and sunny, with some really amazing, awe-inspiring thunderstorms. Which makes for lots of weeds growing in my garden. J man is taking swimming lessons again this year. And he totally freaks out. Yeah. Last year he was a dream- kicking his feet and swinging his arms. Now he cries.
A LOT, people.
And crying in a huge swimming pool is not by any means quiet. He did settle down when they brought out the water balls. For, Like, 5 minutes. Anyway, we're going again tonight!
We went to Noah's Ark, too. For $11. Amazing how much money you can save when you go as a church group of around 75 people. It was a TON of fun, and I even got to go down a few slides by myself! Cuz I'm a big girl....

Anywho, the photography thing is just working out beautifully this year. I have a full summer of weddings, quite a few senior portrait sessions, and a number of family photos. Enough to keep me busy, fo'sho'.

J hubby's still working the 3rd shift thing, but hopefully will be finding something new SOON. (pray for that, too, please!) This is just not easy on our marriage, and he is such a different, happy person when he actually is able to sleep. Which isn't during the day. It's at night, when normal people go to bed. But, well, he works hard, and it's helping me to keep doing what I love to do, too. I just want him to find something that he loves!

We also took a trip to TX to visit my sis-in-law and her hubby. What a great time! We went tubing, horsebackriding, saw the Alamo, remembered it, and did all other kinds of tourist-y things. And I got sun. On my skin. I don't think I've ever been this dark in my life. Dark as in, hi, I am not pale anymore, but still am white as white can be. But not pale!

J man is walking, talking (about basketball, mostly) and absolutely adores his daddy. I love the sound of him saying "daaah-deee". He says it SO clearly, and wonderfully, it makes me smile just about every time.
So, with that, I will end this post.

More to come soon, internet, have no fear!
