He’s in the Army now

I have been silent here for awhile now. It wasn’t for lack of desire to share, but more about the desire to spend as much time as possible enjoying time with my family while all five of us were still under the same roof day in and day out. We had Gabe’s graduation open house

School Portraits Album Flip-through

We have decided to go ahead and have an in-person open house for Gabe, after all, but I started this blog to share his albums, and I will finish! 🙂 We have plenty of family out of town and out of state, who won’t be able to attend, anyway. So hopefully this blog will still

‘Life’ pages might be my favorite.

I love having some of Gabe’s biggest school and sports memories documented in his scrapbooks, but my favorite photos (and therefore, my favorite layouts) are often ones of him just living life. These are the pictures of fishing excursions, crazy faces he made, hiding under a mound of stuffed animals and more. They capture the

So, so sick!

Right now, people all over the world are feeling the heart-wrenching pain of having loved ones in the hospital. Making it much worse is the fact that the people in the hospital are often alone, because visitors are being kept at bay to control the spread of coronavirus. When our younger son (he’s 6) came

School Layout: Children’s Museum Field Trip

One of my favorite ways to capture the life of one of my kids as a student is to chaperone field trips. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has always been one of my kids’ favorite places to visit, but when they get to go with a classroom full of friends, it’s even more enjoyable!
