Brennen informed me this morning that he would "NOT" be standing out at the bus stop getting his picture taken every morning from now thru eternity. He asked me when "enough was enough" and wanted to know how much longer I was going to continue to drag my camera out to the bus with him and Kenidi each morning. As you can tell by the look on his face in the picture above...he's done! If that wasn't a forced smile, I don't know what was. Ha ha! I've been lucky to get the ones I've got due to his normal unwillingness to get in front of a camera. Hummmm...wonder where he gets that from? Wink wink~! ;) Now Kenidi on the other hand, she looks like she is posing for some back to school ad or something in that shot above. She has no qualms with posing away and loves every second in front of the camera. Beings that she has been my model for all of my designs since the year after her birth, she is naturally accustomed to life in front of a lens. She knows no different. I honestly think she views it as part of our daily routine. God help me when she finally figures it all out and resigns on me. Until then, I'm soaking the smiles up...(even if this shot below is blurry and blown out somewhat)

You can see what is left of one of her battle wounds from the war with a classmate on Tuesday in this shot below. It's on the side of her chin. I'm praying that it doesn't scar and that it heals up and completely disappears. Just a little bump - a little war wound. She is a "Seaman" though. She can handle it!

For now, I'm off to go drudge up some energy. This 6am alarm buzzing in my ear the last three mornings is killing me. My body is definitely detesting the early morning fun we are having now that school is back in session. I'm sitting here editing images at my laptop and I feel as though I could just crash right here at the kitchen island. When I woke Kenidi up this morning, I asked her if she was ready to go to school again today. She looked at me, shook her head "no" and rolled back over. Those were my sentiments exactly. Ha ha!

I'll be posting the "foto find Friday" project here on the blog again tomorrow even though I'll be in my mentoring session. The theme this week is "water." If you have a photo that somehow pertains to water, post it. We'd love to see it. Thanks to each of you who participated in last week's "flower" theme. xoxo, Angie

As always, super pictures! I am sad about Kenidi's battle scars, but she's definitely a kiddo who can handle anything that comes her way. She looks so grown up in that first picture; I can't wait to see her!

My kids get like that too! After awhile, they start covering their, and I'm BEGGING them for "just one more!"

Then they respond, "Is this for your blog of Facebook?" Hahaha!

Oh the memories of early mornings trying to wake up the kids (kid) I do believe what they say about what goes around, comes around ha ha. I wish I could be there to help you with them, I could enjoy it a little more now that the pressure is off me. I wondered how long it would be befour Brennen would get tired of the picture taking. I am going to love the day he has his own blog and takes your picture and puts it on there. The kids are looking wonderful as usual. I hope Kenidi dosen't get into any more scraps, my poor little baby.
