Inspired by Jodi, I’m going to give the 52 Project a try.  A portrait of my children, once a week, every week.  I say this tentatively because I am both starting late and only committing myself to as long as I feel like doing it.  I tend to be fickle with challenges of this sort.  I only keep with them for as long as I feel inspired.  I don’t see this as a shortcoming, just the way I prefer to work.

Iain: on his thirteenth birthday in his new kayak

Elijah: always the clown

Galen: headstands and handstands are his new thing

Màiri Rose: looking very big in her brother’s skates

I want to thank you all for all of your kind words, thoughts and prayers over the last couple of weeks.  They mean a great deal to me.  I’m feeling better again today, grateful for the medication when I desperately needed it, but very thankful to be feeling more like myself again.

    I love Iain’s new kayak. The color is my favorite! Did Galen start dance class this year? My oldest granddaughter started acro, tap and ballet and loves it! There are no boys in her classes but in others there are.

    I hope you are feeling better. I don’t have little ones at home, unless the granddaughters are visiting, but I know how boring it gets laying in bed all the time.

    These pictures are wonderful- what beauties! Such a great idea too. Hmmm.
    I have been in the place before where I was grateful for allopathic medicine when I truly needed it, and I too am someone who never takes cough syrup, even!

    Iain picked the color for the kayak. It’s his favorite too ;)

    Galen started a ballet/jazz/tap sampler class this year. He loves it. And yes, just like Iain in Irish dance, he is the only boy in his class.
