Summer has come to a close here in Bend Oregon. The fall festivities have begun around town and I can’t lie and say I am not excited about it! What are you looking forward to this fall?
She has been feeling it for awhile now-that sense of awakening. There is a gentle rage simmer inside her, and it’s getting stronger by the day. She will hold it close to her-she will nurture it and let it grow. She won’t let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel and finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her core-this is her time. She will not only climb mountains-she will move them too. -Lang Leav ✨How beautiful is this poem... speaking these words over myself and my girls.✨
Our day has come! Our first day of school for my first grader. She put herself to sleep yesterday at six in the evening so she wouldn’t be late for school. Then woke up at six am by herself to get ready. She was so excited to go back to school and see all her friends. I couldn’t have chosen a better shirt for her first day of school. Bloom where you are planted.🌻 @littlelegendclothing

This crew of mine will be reunited this weekend. Which means our vacation will come to an end. What a bittersweet summer we had. Whats one memory you took away from 2018 summer?
Have you ever gone on vacation and come back with more than what you took? No... me neither... at least I justify it with school clothes shopping and not having certain stores in our town.
All these back to school pictures popping up on my feed give me mixed emotions. It’s bittersweet to send your kids off to school. I know these little girls will miss each other when Naomi goes back. I’m curious to hear if you have a routine for your littles who aren’t in school yet?
My little tiny dancers, dance on....
So much has changed since we moved away nine years ago. It’s been so fun enjoying my hometown and finding all the cute gems.
Before I formed you I knew you.....
✨Shine bright my little warriors.✨
Happy birthday to our oldest beauty! What a gem to be your mama. Praying favor in your life, courage and bravery. Baby girl you can be anyone and do anything in this world. Dream big!
Can this little one get any cuter?! Enjoy your weekend friends!
I don’t know if any other mama feels the same way but I’m usually not as comfortable in front of a camera. If my girls are in the shot with me then yes shoot away! I’m so grateful for friends who make you step out of your comfort zone and catch amazing shots! Thanks boo! @steph.spaulding
We decided to stay with family a little longer then daddy could and this little one is missing him fiercely. I love seeing the bond they have with one another. Similar to the bond I had with my dad growing up. We would work on house projects together. I also remember my sister and I would wrestle him every Saturday morning for him to not get out of bed and cuddle with us a just a little longer. Watching funny movies was a must in our house. Being surrounded by family is so refreshing for my soul. I'm thankful for these humans I call family.
Cherish these years forever mamas. These years fly by so quick. 📸 @steph.spaulding
This girl crew will be reunited soon. They can say they spent the summer of 2018 together....
This is exactly who Naomi is very caring, kind, compassionate, loving and funny! I’m obsessed with her! I can’t believe in eleven days she will be six. My little mama in training.
Getting ready to go back to school! Anyone else excited to have a little free time with fewer children at home? I am! I can take this time to spend more one on one time with my other two girls while big sissy is at school. It’s a win-win really!
