Inspiration Through Art

I got an email yesterday that made me cry.
I had applied to be a photographer for Inspiration Through Art.
The email said my application had been accepted.
My heart immediately swelled.
This amazing organization helps families with critical ill or special needs children 
find local photographers, who donate a session to capture
the joy of their little heroes.
I feel like I was made for this.

Little cabin in the Woods

(this adventure somehow got missed on the family blog!
Blame it on a busy summer followed by a crazy start of the school year!
Better late than never.)
Way back in July, we stayed at a cabin up in Lake Arrowhead. We being the four of us, my mom and dad, and my sister and her family.
We spent our days and nights just hanging out...
puzzles, movies, and trips to the lake.

 my crazy kids "eating" the donut puzzle. 

 Jack and Molly also made new friends.
Jack preferred human friends.
Molly, of course, chose the canine type.

 We hunted for pinecones...for Molly's daycare, my class, and Aunt Joyce's preschool.

 These two pics of Molly and Papa bird watching make me smile.

 We used to go to Arrowhead each summer as kids.
It was really special to take our own kids there.
I hope it's a new tradition!
Thanks, Nana and Papa!
