Some Things

What is it about a new season that brings on such busy-ness?? 
Fall, especially, seems to be such a busy time of year for us.  Getting back into the swing of homeschooling, back to dance classes, back to Bible study, gearing up for holidays.  It can tucker a girl out, I tell ya.  {You know what else can tucker a girl out?  A little one who insists on being up with her mama from 2am-4am nightly.  But that's another story}.

So, in the interest of playing catch up.  This is what's going on around here:

♥ We've started a new bible study.  Since we've done most of Beth Moore's studies, and we had a time limit {we wanted a shorter study so that we could break before the holidays}, we decided on Fingerprints of God, by Jennifer Rothschild. Last night was our first night, but so far, so good. Definitely different than Beth's, but change can be good, right?

♥ We are officially back to dance class, and the girls are loving it.  And I am SO happy to have been able to get both Sierra and Makenna in classes on the same night, at the same time.  Hallelujah!

♥  I've officially started my photography business.  After thinking about it and talking about it for the last couple of years, I finally did it!  Taylor is still so little, and I don't have plans to leave my babies anytime soon, but I was really feeling like God was telling me that it was time.  So, I got things in order, legally, for when that time might come.  And, literally, within a week I had two people call me about doing senior portraits {three seniors in all}, and another family email about family portraits.  I never cease to be amazed by how God works!  I did my first session, and it was so much fun! Of course, it didn't hurt that she is gorgeous, and a natural model. 

SO.  All of that to say: look for photos coming soon!  You know, once we get over this virus junk, and I get some sleep, and catch up on the laundry, and have a spare moment.

Well, it looks like I've gotten little miss back to sleep.  Better go catch a few winks, myself, before it's time to start another day.

Hope y'all have a great Monday!!

So happy for your new business! Yes, God is always good. He knows just what we need, doesn't He? : ) Can't wait to see previews. Wish we lived closer.. I'd have you take some of us!

Yay, so excited for you & your photography business - that's amazing! After I bought my first DSLR (a canon rebel xs) I've been hooked on photography & already upgraded to a newer canon model! :)

Congrats on starting your own business!!! I can't wait to see pictures from your shoots!!! Seems like everyone wants their newborn/family/senior pictures done in special locations with freelance photographers now. It's a great time to be getting into this!!

Do you have a website for your photography?? I wanna see it!!
Also, Beth Moore, I LOVE her. Like, I would LOVE LOVE to go to lunch with her. Wouldn't you love that?
She has a lot of homework sometimes though.
Is your church doing the new study?? Or just you and your fam? Our ladies at church are doing the Women of God 2010 thing. I think that's what it's called. Okay, I bet that's not what it's called, I can't remember. I didn't do it this time.

Congrats on starting your photography business! I can't wait to see your work. I always love seeing your pics. I noticed the new sidebar pics of the kids and they are so cute!!

I'm sorry the baby is up at night, that makes things really tough!

I hope the virus is gone soon!

I'm so excited for you Liz. You take really great pictures so I'm not surprised that you already have people interested in you :) You'll have to keep me posted on that study. I need to start doing something over the summer when BSF is over. Yeah for dance on the same day...I know that has to help out a ton!
