What's Up with Us

A photo blog of some happenings from this week.... ...........Logan says that I must say that some photos were fake.I prefer to use the term, "Thoughtfully posed" :-)

This was a for real photo of Brenna with her cute new do.....
And Broc worked his butt off all today in his office, but I captured this one last night ..He has been burning the candle at both ends...He really was asleep but the flash woke him up. Sorry dear.
Logan and Trevor lifting some of my new weights .... I'm thinking if I leave them in the middle of the living room, I'll be inspired.......

Brenna has been a wild crazy potter lately. She's run out of room for all her new pieces in her studio and we made some space in what used to be the dining/music/game/almost yoga studio room....

Also, so many unschoolers are writing articles and blogging that I don't feel at all guilty for taking an extended break. Facebook has been an amazing resource for keeping us all connected through updates and blogposts and photos.
I've recently re-connected with some old friends mostly far away and from very long ago. It's been lovely and has tugged at my heart a bit. I'm amazed to see how many people still stop by and read here, even though I haven't been posting. There are people from England and Toronto and Memphis in the last few days.
