officially in biz...

Check out my new website that officially launched today! I am still working on building my portfolio but I am for hire now. Kinda strange to think about charging for something I LOVE to do!

my little fish

Faith's 3rd year completing swim lessons!


I had never heard about ISR lessons until this summer. We spent 10minutes a day Mon-Fri for the last five weeks at these lessons. I have to admit I was skeptical at first. I was also very hesitant because of the five days a week, 4-6week commitment and of course the lessons are pricey. The first couple of lessons I even doubted if I had made the right decision. The lessons are very intense, emotional and Jaylee even threw up the first couple of times. You have to document every thing they eat and drink and every time they have a bowel movement and urination the entire time they are in the lessons. Before they graduate they have to pass off saving themselves, first in their summer cloths, then their PJs and then full blown winter clothing. The pics (BELOW) are of Jaylee passing off in her winter cloths. Long sleeve shirt, hooded sweater, jeans, socks and tennis shoes and diaper. The instructor sank her clear to the bottom of the pool, flipped her every wich way, threw her in face first and backwards and last she took off her sweater and threw it on top of jaylees face. My 1yr old baby can save her own life if she fell into water because she knows how to float and swim to the side of the pool! She can float as long as she needs to, until she would be rescued. I am in no way being naive, I understand a child should never be left unsupervised ever! But these lessons sure have given me some piece of mind. I HIGHLY recommend everyone get their kiddos into these lessons, it will be the BEST investment you have ever made! As soon as I can I will post the video of her passing off, it is really something to see!

Independance Day

July 4th was a little nontraditional this year. Ronnie and Faith flew to Utah for our nephew Ethan's baptism. They were gone for 5 days. Jaylee and I went to Show Low with my family for the celebrations(I HATE flying).

Faiths first time flying in an airplane and she loved it!

Faith loved visiting with all of her cousins

Jaylee had fun at the parade and fireworks!

My cute little sis! Today is her birthday! I feel so lucky to have her for a sister. I am so proud of all that she has acomplished! Happy Birthday sista! Below is a picture of her little girl (my gorgeous niece). Check out my photography blog to see more cute pics of her kiddos!
