A few weeks ago, I was approached by Michael of Rustic Willow Studio to get together for a family photo session at Tifft Nature Preserve. Since family pictures are kinda-sorta like my love language, I hesitated for maybe .2 seconds before I replied with an enthusiastic YES!
We can’t avoid it… and sometimes I want nothing more than the routine, structure, and phenomena of a clean house for eight hours straight that Back to School Season brings. On the other hand, I
hate strongly dislike the idea of lunches, homework helping, and waking up those sleeping kiddos day after day.
One of the things I look forward to as a mom is enrolling our kids for sports teams. While I can only hope our daughter wants to play field hockey in middle school and our son will refrain from playing any contact sports (Hi, I’m Sam and I’m a helicopter mother), I know that it’s naive to think they won’t gain an interest in summer soccer, ice hockey, and little league football with their friends someday soon.
