My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Thousands of words

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I’m going to save myself the trouble of writing and just post some pictures of what has been going on around here lately.


Eli got a handsome haircut.  He officially looks like a Davis boy with a buzz cut.


Jonah checking to see how much he has grown.


Simon does “boy school” with 3 of his neighborhood friends:  Kade, Mazden and Tigger.  They rotate houses 3 days a week.  Not a lot of “school” happens, but it’s lots of fun!


Simon likes to comb his hair up in the front every day, so it will look “cool like Caleb’s.”


Jeff and his brother Doug took 9 kids to the lake!  Now that is the definition of a real man (I guess I should say real men, plural)  in my book!


Caleb and Connor Payne cooked the burgers, while Jonah waited anxiously.


Playing with Audree and Olivia on the shore.  Good thing I insisted that Jeff let me pack a change of clothes for Simon “just in case his pants happen to get wet.”


Cute 3 year old cousins Grant and Clark.


Riding behind the boat.  Olivia, Audree and Jonah.


Caleb and Josh.  I think Connor was in the middle there…  ?


My cute little Eli.  Just because.
