We are officially half way through the year and this year we had a surprise addition to the family too. It’s our second family captures with little man in tow and it does prove a challenge to get three small people looking at the camera or at least looking happy and convince hubby he will thank me one day for doing these family snaps each month while the kids are growing up. I often wonder how long I can keep this up. It’s been five years of documenting us together as a family and I love it so much. I hope the kids will love looking back at the family adventures and the fun we had together. I am trying to put them all in digital albums so we have them all together each year. I normally am so good at keeping up with my digital albums but sadly I am a year behind with them all. I still need to do all our last summer in America, Disney World, and Me and Mine Family ones too. I guess that’s what slow summers are for catching up on those project while I am not working as many hours. I tend to do half work weeks while we are back home in America as I think it’s so important to spend that quality time with my family and the kids extended family as we only see them all once a year. But bills still have to be paid, I would love all summer off work, how amazing would that be.
Baby boy seems to have slotted in perfectly with the family. It’s been SO HOT the entire time since he was born so he doesn’t know any different. It definitely helps keep him to his naps/bedtime sleep routines with all this heat. We tried to wake him up for the family photos and he was having none of it snoozing on Daddy. He has changed so much already at almost eight weeks old. I love the beginning when they are all squished up little newborns and then they get bigger and start to smile and coo and it melts my heart. The kid have had a blast getting to know him too. They argue over who loves him more not sure it’s cute or really annoying yet. Verdict out.
We are all prepared for our summer abroad. The clothes shopping alone was a big task. Thank goodness for online shopping. Getting everything they all need as there isn’t clothing stores or shops near where we are staying this year. We usually take a trip to Seattle or Vegas or another city but this year it will be all about just being in the family home in the mountains and spending as much time together.

This month has flown by already and I can’t believe the kids are almost out of school. I am not ready for B to start Juniors in September. How can MM be done with her first year of school already? She has learned so much and matured a lot these past few months. It’s such a big difference when they just turn four right before school starts. The littlest of the class and she has really come out of her shell. It’s so lovely to see my kids hitting milestones, getting involved in school projects, activities and sports. It’s the greatest gift of all being a parent. I am so excited to go through it all again in a few years with baby boy too. It really does go way too fast.
