{Project 26 – ‘I don’t want to forget’}

Wow, this has been a crazy nutty busy two weeks!  I wish I had more time for this post since the theme means so much to me and I say this almost on a daily basis about my kids and how fast they’re growing.  This would be the longest post ever if I could fit in everything I want to remember and hope to never forget.  But I’ll make it short and sweet and save some if it for other posts:)

I don’t want to forget home much my kids ‘like’ one another.  How much they depend on each other as playmates, as helpers, as company.  This is what I woke up to find the other morning.  The two curled up watching TV.  Brielle likes to grab Tyler’s hand…sometimes (most of the time) he’s okay with this.  Brielle sleeps in Ty’s room on the weekends in the full sized lower bunk with Tyler.  I went in the other night and they were asleep holding hands.  I tried to get a picture of it but my camera wouldn’t focus in the darkness:( But went back to get Jeff so he could see.  It melted me.

I don’t want to forget their carefree summer evenings.  Riding bikes in the street until dinner time.

And the silly things I see Brielle do when she’s bored after being in her room for a little ‘time out’.  She doesn’t get them much but when she does she’s either deep into a book, asleep or has changed her outfit, accessorized, or has dress-up clothes on.  And her time outs aren’t very long so she’s quick!  I’ve termed these quiet moments ‘creative seclusion’.  Thankfully she doesn’t get them very much, but when she does she usually comes out happy;-) Love my little bug!

There are so many things I don’t want to ever forget.  I’m going to put a ‘to be continued’ on this post since I have so much more I want to share.  Old pictures, memories, stories, etc.

Continue through the circle and visit the talented Martha Schuster and see what she’s posted.

Your pictures are fabulous and very whimsical! You inspire me!

Also, I know you probably get asked a lot but can you please tell me the name of the instrumental piece you have playing? It’s beautiful and I can’t find the name anywhere on your blog. Thanks!

Honestly you are such an inspiration!!! You make me want to document our lives more. What a touching story about your little ones in bed. Such a gift your giving them by capturing these moments.

every photo is just beautiful. there’s something about your daughter on her bike that just gets me though….it’s so…childhood. also connected with the swim goggles as currently my daughter wears them non stop – to bed even. you have reminded me to document it. thank you for sharing all of your memories, and i agree…i could fill pages and pages of things i don’t want to forget.

Tears Kara. You are so incredibly blessed, and love that you will have these memories. You remind me everyday to slow down and enjoy them. It won’t last forever. Thank you for making me open my eyes and look at my kiddos differently today.

These are two special kids. Tyler has always been supportive and a defender of his little sister. Gotta love that
