Pictures of Ordinary Days

There is something so special about ordinary days :)  I love that a camera can capture things that my memory has a hard time retaining!

The other day Kara found a screwdriver and was very busy trying to figure out how it worked.  She was so intent and it gave me a chance to photograph some of her cute expressions. 

Benjamin was so excited to be able to play outside without his jacket on!  He is on top of our hill here.  What a huge blessing it was to have this hill in our front yard this year!   TR built it when he cleared the snow off of our driveway with a bobcat.  The kids played on it so much and enjoyed it.  I even heard Chloe bragging about this HUGE hill her Daddy had made for her.
It was very hard to take a picture next to this window - but I like how it turned out anyway.  TR had a day off and spent part of it adding shelves and lights onto a plant stand he built for me last year.  Now instead of 1 light, it has 3!  He truly puts wings to my dreams :)

Benjamin got this guitar for his birthday last month.  It is such a joy for me to listen to him playing and singing, making up his own songs.  One Sunday shortly after his birthday it was TR's turn to play with the music team and he had left early to practice.  Benjamin played his guitar for a while in between getting ready and when it was time to leave he brought his guitar to the door.  He was convinced that since he had practiced that morning that he would bring his guitar to Church and play up on stage too :) 

This horse was a gift from my Grandpa (mom's dad).  It had belonged to my Grandma who passed away when I was 1.  Years later he gave a lot of Grandma's things to his grandchildren and this horse was in my box.  My kids, especially Chloe, really enjoyed being able to play with it.  I found it broken a few weeks ago so we took a picture so we could remember.
