Overdue

Been a long time since I’ve posted in our family blog.  Life rushes by...and my kids growing up. Rachel enjoys being my “model” since she herself appreciates photography.

She has such a sweet, innocent, joyful spirit.

And looks as handsome as ever...of course I would think that, I’m his mother!

He styled it at first...then later complained about styling it.

He also decided that he wanted his own Instagram account, which his sisters (the Instagram gurus) helped him with!
