One Moment | 3 years of High School left!

Last Thursday was Logan’s last day of his freshman year of high school!


Boy did he grow this year; not only up, but his face has changed, it’s looking less and less like my cute baby did! And hair! His hair is the darkest in the family, and for awhile this year he was sporting a heft pair of sideburns!!!

Logan doesn’t have the drive that Liam did at this age; there’s not one thing that he’s really passionate about, so he’s had less motivation in school. But he’s made great strides forward in getting himself out of the complaining phase whenever he’s asked to do something and on to the doing phase, fingers crossed that this translates into greater motivation in school next year!

Although I now know that sending a kid off to college does not bring an end to parenting and worrying and helping from afar, I am greatly encouraged by the fact that we only have 3 more years of getting someone to school by 7:25 am, something that is tough for ALL of us.

One Moment | Last Day of School!

It’s the Last Day of School! Actually, Logan has another day and a half, but his exams were over yesterday, and there’s no way I’m getting Liam up out of bed and dressed early on the day after his graduation, so we’ll use today as Logan’s last day too!  Here’s today’s shot lined up with the… Continue Reading

One Moment | My Baby is 14!

Logan turned 14 over the weekend! It does NOT seem like that long ago that he was born, and he’s just about in high school now!!!! We had a nice party with 3 of his friends over. Liam and I set up a bit of scavenger hunt to lead them from one activity to another… Continue Reading

One Moment | The Decision is Made!

He’s worked really hard, had all sorts of awesome successes, (along with a couple of disappointments), and auditioned all over the country… Continue Reading
