Stefan is still job searching, so if you know of any jobs available, please call! However, one job he did not expect to have full-time, I bet, is that of full-time stay-at-home-dad. Let me tell you, the man is impressive, and I am OH SO THANKFUL for him. He has lightened my load considerably, and I know that my friends and co-workers are probably imagining my slow death when I honestly tell them that I haven't done a load of laundry, cooked a meal, or cleaned the house (unless I wanted to) since mid-January. I know that our family is actually benefitting from his time off, and we continue to trust our Provider to take care of us. We refuse to worry. (Yes, it's hard).
These next pictures are a direct reflection of the title of this post. I try to have their pictures taken on Sundays BEFORE church, so I can leave them in their nice clothes, we don't have to make an additional 40-minute trip to the photography studio, and the kids are usually in a good mood at that time. All of these were true this time, except Scarlet was a little testy, and so what I thought were the best shots and poses didn't make the cut because she was fussing a bit. I used the opportunity to have both Scarlet's 1 year pictures taken as well as Spring pictures for all three of my kids.
