You can call me Becky or Library Spy. Either one is just fine.

Summer keeps spinning along.
A little too quickly for my liking.
In between all of our fun adventures, I try to encourage literary pursuits for my little scholars.
Of course they greatly appreciate these forays into greater knowledge.
Or not.
Either way, at least once a week, we make our way to the good old 
Indian Valley Public Library.
Take a gander at our latest trip.

I told Gary this was my new life motto.
I can't tell you what he said back since this is a nice family blog.
You can imagine though.
Darn it.
I was hoping he would see this and say 
"Quit your job at once!" whilst pulling me towards a vent so air could blow up my 
stretched out yoga pants  very sexy dress.
Oh well.

Growing up {Baby Sofia}

Sofia is going to Kindergarten in the fall.
Isn't that where giant, grown up children go?

 The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching."
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."

Something different {Boudoir}

I am so blessed to have some very good photographer friends to learn and grow beside.
Maddy and Scarlett are two of my best ones.
They wanted to try something a little different.
Oh my.
I told Gary we were going to have a boudoir shoot.  I had to explain what it was.
Gary told me he had always had a passion for photography and he wanted to come and assist.
I told him he was crazy!
No boys allowed.
We had the most incredible time.
The girls were beautiful.
You might not believe this, but I mostly shot faces.
That's how I roll.
And wherever I roll, I just hope I am rolling right along Scarlett and Maddy.

Friday {'It is neither wealth nor splendor; but tranquility and occupation which give you happiness.' Thomas Jefferson }

Aren't you glad for Fridays?

We had a great week.
We took a little trip to Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos.
To say the kids loved it would be an understatement.
They want to go back.


This weekend will bring a little heat.
And a little fun.

How come

How come out of all the little boys in the world,
 Jesus gave me the very best one?

I don't know how I got so blessed to be his Mama.
You can be sure I am thankful every day about it though.
This picture is technically terrible.
It warms my heart though, so who cares about the technicalities?
