our days are images

today thomas uploaded some pictures i took on my little camera of our life: ambrose's end of the session preschool party, some family beach days, anna's 25th birthday, that delightful day bubbie and i spent at kekelas and i think that is all for now. i have to stop putting off preparing my relief society lesson now. just got called. now i teach sharing time 2nd sundays and relief society 3rd. awesome. why i am being so brief. in. my. sentence. structure? loveyou. (bye).

happy the man, and happy he alone,
he who can call today his own:
he who, secure within, can say
tomorrow do thy worst,
for i have lived today.

I CAN'T STAND THIS!!! I JUST WANT TO BE A PART OF IT!! friend,i really enjoy your vibrant approach to life these days. its so chin up/ inspiring. i miss you and hawaii and---sure my days are golden too with my little girls and idaho fields, but paradise is just looking too good right now, largely because you guys are there. only really cool people with guts stay on that island and live the dream. i seriously wonder if you'll ever be able to leave--its just so you guys.

i love how you guys are always out living. Your life seems so full and fun. Great pictures, as always.

you always crack me up so much! I like those pictures, and i like the one where kaiya and ambrose are eating their shave ice together. they definitely got high on sugar that day, eh?

wow, your amazing for being able to teach both classes in rotation! I feel like teaching primary twice a month is hard. haha!! it's really not tho.

oh diana- if you guys were here then it really would be paradise. i think you would enjoy our beach days and book club and all other festivities. i would bring you three girls with me on a supervision (i guess i would have a bigger car in this dream life) and all the kids would scream the whole time and we would love it cuz we were together again! (DOIT!)

BITTY! so long since i've heard much from you except for your excellent read you posted about. i miss you.

melissa- i love the intense shaved ice slurping that was going on. it was such a fun day.

hellooooo handsome. would you be offended it i told you ambrose is such a pretty little boy? his eyes/eyelashes are gorgeous. do you ever say, "i can't believe this is my life?" or "i can't believe ambrose is growing up this way?" unbelievable.

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

i dont think any mom would be offended to hear that- what a lovely thing to say :)

we realize that this is a fun and good way to live right now... we'll see how long we can make it last.

next week i get back to work, but then i'll be done again and we can go back to days like this until the month after that starts...etc. :)

I just have to tell you that your blog is one of the coolest. And you know how some people overuse and underestimate the word 'coolest'.....? well, I'm not. Its one of my favorites to check during my routine blog check every night. You always have great pictures. Don't stop. I'm a fan.

Bitty said...

yes i have returned. I have missed the blog world more than it has missed me. Again let me say great pictures. Amby has the best eyes for pictures, so expressive
