flora bella this is my take on that inspiration.
aftermy little torrey, heading soon into the 5th grade, decided to get a haircut to accompany her last year in elementary school. (i'm still not exactly sure how all of this time went by so quickly! why wasn't i listening more closely when people told me that???) i'm pretty sure this haircut grew her up a few years in a few minutes!
another shot of the cute new do. :)
one of my favorite things in the world is making my cute husband laugh, that and watching him topple over in a good belly laugh. it's one of the million and one reasons i love him so.
stan started giving emma some drum lessons the other day after weeks of constant tapping on the counter. it's so fun to watch those drum skills used as daddy/daughter bonding moments.
this summer the girls moved up to "big girl" bikes... i.e. bikes that are the same size as mom's bike. they've gotten so LONG this summer. their legs and arms and bodies are just stretching out like crazy! i remember them trying these bikes out last year, and they couldn't even touch the ground.
loved this little note emma left for her "sweat and loveing" dad the other morning by the coffee pot, so he'd find it when he woke up. :)
we also got a visit from stan's parents this summer. it's pretty obvious how much the girls adore their grandpappy. :)
i wish i had a little more reserve to write, but i'm a little emotionally tapped right now. so that's as good as it's gonna get today!
