Sisters... Capturing Every Second

This weekend we cleaned out out garage, which is pretty much one of my least favorite activities in the universe. Ok, maybe it is not that bad because Erik does most of the work, but it does rank pretty high on my least favorite chores list, right next to window washing and door scrubbing and any other domestic duty. In my garage cleaning rebellion, I sat down with a box of pictures. I searched through the treasure box from an era when I actually printed every picture that we had ever taken of the kids.
It doesn't take much to side track me, and that box of the kids baby pictures kept me busy for at least an hour. I poured over each and every one of them. I ooohhed and aawwed over every fat roll {and crinkled my nose at mine}, every cute outfit and every adorable baby smile. Looking at them now, I am reminded that they are not babies anymore, and my obsession with capturing each second {yes, second} of their lives has grown as they have gotten older.
This weekend I met up with sister~ Kaitlyn, Maggie and Ellie May. When they stepped out of the car in their adorable outfits, chucks and beaming smiles, I knew it was going to be a ton of fun. We laughed and played and watched them enjoy being kids and it reminded me once again that God has me right where he needs me to be... capturing every second.
