It Is Done!

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Triathlon 2008

I swam...

I biked...

I ran...

I relaxed!

(That's pretty much it in a nutshell!)

My Big News

Well, you have probably noticed that I've been a little "MIA" in blogworld lately. Aside from training from my upcoming triathlon (this weekend), co-hosting my sister-in-law's baby shower bash, having yet another garage sale, working on homeschool curriculum and helping my husband with a big church project... I've opened up a photography business!

I've always loved portrait photography and decided that it would be a great 'from-home' business. Although I jested a while back about the title, Captured by an Angel, -it has actually stuck as the company name! I have decided that as much as I love doing this and enjoy the extra income, my dedication as wife and mother must come if I start to slack in those areas, I've got to kick it in gear! I want to continue to be honoring first and foremost to Christ and right now that means balance in my priorities.

I had my first photo shoot three weeks ago and have been busy ever since! I'm excited and overwhelmed as my calendar is already filling up! Here are a few pictures that I did for a family a couple of weeks ago... Enjoy! (Can you tell I love black & white pics?)

My Little Swimmers (And Father's Day)

We had such a wonderful father's day weekend! On Saturday we all went out fishing again until the late hours of the night... On Sunday we had the opportunity to go to my parent's home and swim! The boys did great and we had such a nice time relaxing with daddy and grandpa!

The boys sit on the hot tub while we wait for daddy to come and jump in the pool with us!

The boys and daddy in the pool... don't you just love how deflated that raft is around youngest?

All wrapped up after lots of pool time!

Seriously- I didn't ask them to pose like homeboys, but the sun was really bright and I think oldest was a little agitated. *grin*

Youngest enjoyed riding on daddy more than anything else! And- how cute are those Elmo floaties?

Had to get a picture of this one! Oldest was constantly diving head first into Grandpa's 'treasure' chest of water paraphernalia. I just missed his feet sticking straight up in the air!

My man's got SKILLS! :)
