Back to School

Back to school and I'm back to blogging.  It has been a while but I am going to make a better effort to get back into the whole family blog.  I need to do it for my kids. I am also going to try to print out my blog books! I did it for the first year and then nothing.  Shame on me! I will be catching up from our summer in the next few weeks!

So Payton and Jay started preschool today! Payton is in pre-k and Jay is in the 2 year old class. They will be gone 4 mornings a week and Payton all week.  It will be good for them and me! I enjoyed them a ton this summer but it was hard running my little business with children around.  I am a firm believer of my kids learning from other people!

We managed to get up and going in time for photos. :) Also going to try to use my "big camera" with the kids more. It was raining outside but we manage for a few shots!

Shhhhh....don't tell anyone I haven't blogged in forever!!

Okay so yes, I am guilty of not blogging! I figured it was just family and some friends. But when one of my husband's co-workers asked, I figured I might be behind. (hi Honeywell peeps!)

Again this photog mom is thankful for the iPhone and Instagram! Follow me on Instagram @klpdesigns of you'd like!

So since April there has been Jay's birthday, school year fun, soccer, daddy haircuts, 5k, Payton's first recital, and summer fun! Here is a peek from the phone.

Strawberry Picking

Last week during spring break we went Strawberry picking with friend. It was a hot morning at the farm but we did bring home 2 gallons of fresh strawberries. Yummy!

Happy Easter

We had a wonderful Easter. Just relaxed with family and grilled out after church.  Payton was super excited about Easter and the Easter bunny. Of course when I asked her about the story of Easter she told me a little bit about Jesus. She was pretty close! So sweet.

Team Happy Feet {Soccer Time!}

Payton started soccer in March.  She has had a great time with it so far and it is fun to watch.  Her team, Happy Feet, has all girls and 1 boy.  He is one good sport! Payton practices on Mondays and has games on Saturdays.  I managed to take photos for her first game.  She did a great job! We still have to work on defense but did score a goal last week.  At this age, they don't keep score or have goalies. All about FUN!

Spring Time Fun

Now that the weather is great we have been enjoying our backyard. It has been nice this year because BOTH kids can be outside with out me for a short period of time.  I can keep an eye on them through the kitchen or enjoying sitting outside with them.  The result of tons of outside time…lots of baths! Totally worth it.  I had fun taking photos after dinner one night.  Did I mention that I enjoy grilling outside?!? Really…Randy grills. :) But it means less to clean up for me!

Maybe I future baseball players?!?!
