1st Grade

My little man is in first grade and we're almost a quarter done with the year. Time is flying by. It is so hard to believe that it is almost October! Jalen has adjusted well to first grade and is taking on all kinds of new challenges! We are so proud of him!! He excels in math and is reading great. He tries no matter what the problem is and usually succeeds! When he tracks out he is going to read a book to Ryan's class!


Last weekend we took a visit to the zoo since Nicholas had off. We had a great family day. We got the chance to see all of the animals. My highlight was being able to see the Polar Bear. Jalen's favorite animal was the water snake that was trying to climb up the wall of the lemur exhibit. Who would've known! It was quite interesting.

Sheen Maternity Shoot

The Sheens had their maternity pictures today and I had a great time shooting them. Taking pictures is one of my favorite things to do! We were supposed to take pictures at Lake Pine and quickly realized that a lake with no water wasn't going to be pretty. Apparently, they drained the lake for some reason! We made an impromptu decision to go to Bond Lake. It was a great choice! Below are a few pictures from today's session!

Happy Birthday, Brooklyn!

Yesterday Brooklyn turned 3. It is so hard for me to believe that she is 3 years old. She acts so mature for her age, that I feel like she should be turning 4 or 5, despite me not wanting her to be that old. She's one of the funniest kids I know. She's the only one who will look at you and say 'can you please stop being weird?' as she rolls her eyes. She's the only three year old I know who can swim and spell her name! We're so blessed to have you in our lives Bear. We love you! Happy Birthday!!!
