Adam's Wedding

Adam and Shannon got married on June 4th. Can you see the pure joy in their eyes? And it wasn't just for the pictures either. They are constantly smiling when they are together. It is so fun. Anyways, their wedding led of course to family pictures. They turned out pretty cute.

This is a picture of the whole Higham Family (or it was a complete picture until Tami and Shelley went ahead and had babies in the last couple of weeks. Christi and Melanie will be adding a couple more by the end of the year). Kind of crazy that this pure chaos is just going to grow.
And here is Grandpa and Grandma Higham with all the grandkids. They did have pictures with most of the kids smiling, but this is by far my favorite.
And then we have a picture with all the siblings, including those married in. Someday there will be four more individuals in this picture. We barely fit in the frame as is.
And here is a picture of my family. It is weird to think we are all growing up and that Michael is 15 already. Aren't I 15 still? I guess not with the 5 kids I have. Time flies.
And then finally a picture of me and my bro Adam. It was a very fun weekend with all the family in town. Thanks Adam and Shannon for bringing everyone together. It seems a rare opportunity these days!

Parenting: Touching the Hearts of Our Youth

Why oh why do I struggle so much to post during the summer? Especially when there is so much to blog about? Maybe because we are having so much fun that by the end of the day all I want to do is crawl into bed and fall to sleep. Until I do get up the energy to post (which will hopefully be in the next day or so), enjoy this little video. It hit home today for some reason. How many times do I listen to my children without really hearing what they are saying? How grateful I am that they are so quick to forgive me for not listening and willing to share again what they have to say! I love my kids and can't imagine a greater joy in life than that of being a mother.
