This was a beautiful shoot.

I love seeing the table with BIG wet swooshy circles all over it. What Micah lacks in quality table wiping, he certainly makes up for in enthusiasm!!

[three thirty seven-three forty]

"Land ahoy!!" :)
 Soo I've been really really bad at taking pictures and uploading them since I got home, surprise surprise. I didn't actually *miss* any days, but I got bad pictures :) *sigh* hopefully my inspiration and motivation will return to me soon.
Over the weekend we had some amazing Chinese visitors who made the food for US! It was awesome in that we didn't have to cook, *and* the food was amazing... the dumplings especially :) I ate waaaay too many of those guys.
Today I worked on some math, potty training my brother, cleaning my room (somehow I always get interrupted in the middle and it looks worse than it did when I started.. *sigh*) trying to eat enough to stay alive, haha, and.. hanging out with Samantha and laughing.. tiredly. :)  
Tomorrow I'm starting an experiment. You'll be hearing about it probably after it's over :)

I'm not too sure about this.. haha.

...since I know you guys were just dying to see the post-hair-in-a-million-braids hairdo. ;) I should audition for Miracle Max's wife, right?
P.S. wide angle... makes noses look humongous. Just sayin'.

[happy birthday]

"Why do women want to dress like men when they're fortunate enough to be women? Why lose our femininity, which is one of our greatest charms? We get much more accomplished by being charming than we would by flaunting around in pants and smoking. I'm very fond of men. I think they're wonderful creatures. I love them dearly. But I don't want to look like one."
~Tasha Tudor 

Great quote, plus apparently it's her birthday today :)

Tuesday. Volleyball. Amazing sunset light. Awesome friends gathered to wish Travis goodbye.

[three thirty four]

Too much glare. But I loved this moment too much not to use it :)

Zachary and I rolled down the hill.. three times :) Haha. It was waaaay too much fun.
Soo.. Justin and Nathaniel gave Samantha and me a SLACKLINE for our birthdays. I'm still kinda in shock.. but THANK YOU!!

Slacking :)

Setting up our very own slackline.
Singing. Running. Working out our abs (ouch double ouch)
Going to Hidden Lake. Birthday gifts and celebration for Justin.

Hehe :)

Karie.. going for the mad scientist look. It suits her ;)

[three thirty five]

Shadows and light. Morning. Soreness.
Singing. Setting up the slackline *all* by ourselves. Getting my hair done in all braids :)
Making dinner and eating it together. Going home.

Part three of the Fruit Shoot :)

All I can say is, "Yess... yessss... yes."

[three thirty two-discontentment]

[three thirty two]

Something that creeps up on me so badly and so often is discontentment. Not as a whole attitude towards life, (such as my family, my position in life right now) but in small things, such as clothing and other 'stuff.' Yet these add up, if you let them. I have to remind myself, "If I'm not happy with the clothes that I have, I won't be happy with new ones." I need Jesus to be my all in all, to be the only thing I hunger and thirst for, to be my utmost joy.
You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
i wuv feavewws.

i walked the creek from the farm to our house today by myself, and I collected lots of feathers :) And.. I put them in my cap, *naturally*!! Haha I walked in and Josiah goes, "Why are there feathers in your hat?" and I said, "There are *feathers* in my hat?!?! Are you sure?" haha.

Sooo... since I can't find the key to my typewriter (yes, I have one too!!)
I decided to take some shots with the case closed. (It's not like I had another option...
I already tried breaking into it with a bobby pin)
I like cowboy boots. I like cute skirts. I like backlight. Voila!

Don't you just love my shoestring headband?? Haha...

God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good.  It's terrible, but sometimes we really need to remind ourselves of this fact. We'll say it with our mouths, but our complaining attitudes will say the opposite. I don't want these tremendous truths written just on my hands, but on my heart. I want them to be evident through me.
