|Lil' Ragu on his 4th birthday this January 20th. Such a special child, that always Smiles and is filled with so much LOVE!|
We have been struggling since the beginning of the new year as a family to get things in order in all ways. I think mostly for my husband Dennis and myself, time runs off at it's own pace and before you know it, it's time to start the day over again. Between the things that encompass family life, in-laws visiting, Christmas, taking the ornaments down, lights down, Florida winter cleaning, and house chores, plus work, it's been quite overwhelming.
We were able to enjoy in January, a homeschool field trip to Jungle Island in Miami which everyone of the lil' rascals enjoyed, especially Lil' Ragu, since he was the birthday boy a couple of days later. (Those pictures soon to come this week)
I made a commitment to myself this past year to learn and grow with my photography. It has paid off to study at night, but I have become totally burned out and exhausted. When I took a step back and realized that to make my dreams come true, I would have to take the slow and steady pace and trust in God that things will work out. I want my journey like motherhood to be somewhat fun.
Since the attitude change, I have put things in motion. For me it was a way to start a new business that I know the lil' rascals could learn and grow from, since they love photography as well.
So here I have been all this time. Devoting my time to my new photography online porfolio, taking late night classes, and just processing photos for friends and family and doing photo sessions.
I have a full week of great things that will be happening in our homeschool. I can't wait to post them and enjoy or rather reflect in the new season of Lent this year. There are so many things that I learn from the season of Lent. I so much need this change in my life it hurts.
Mardi Gras, Lent and Valentine's Day all in one week. Should be fun!
