Growing Up



Time sure is flying here at the Just Ordinary Us homestead. (I wish we had a homestead.) My littlest guy just turned one (what?!?), my curly guy turned three and started kindy with his big sister, and before you know it, we're having to make plans for Christmas! (Yes, I said it!)

So the other day, in the spirit of embracing the moment and getting out of my grumpy fug (where I've been spending A LOT of time lately...), we threw the usual post-school routine of afternoon tea, DVD and homework out the window and went out into the sunshine. We had a snack on the deck and pulled out all the bikes and had a great time soaking up the fresh air and warm sunlight. Just what we all needed. I grabbed my oft-neglected camera and snapped away and I'm so glad I captured a fun afternoon playing together.



My babies are just growing up so fast. Yes, these pre-school years are often filled with crazy, and certainly hustle and bustle, but oh my word am I going to miss them when they're gone!



Despite the mayhem, I LOVE this life. I love that I have my babies and my babies have me. (And their Papa, of course.) I deliberately choose to enjoy this time - sure, not every moment, because who can enjoy diarrhea in nappies and vomiting babies etc etc, am I right? - because I know that I will look back on it as one of the best times in our lives. I'm not going to waste that.
