Aaron fell off the deck

Aaron was removing boards Thursday, and fell off the deck. He landed half on and half off the frame and landed on a screw, which punctured him behind his ear. He was very sore and very blood, but it seems to be healing without infection. Now he is coming down with the same virus that the boys had. So he missed the scout camping trip on Saturday. We really missed him, too.

Soccer Started

Soccer started! I have to say that I enjoy going. It is fun to watch little kids play soccer. I was watching the 8yr old team today, and they never stop talking even when they are running!

I was unsure of how my boys would do, especially Alex. But so far I am really impressed. Even though Alex is goofy and talks non-stop, he still is playing great and is agressive with the ball. Way to go! Parker, of course, is doing great too. They are both nervous about the first game this Saturday. I am sure after they get thru it, it will be fine. Parker said he likes practise, but doesn't want to "battle".

I will let you know how the game goes. We had to bring our camera the first practise. Thanks Aaron for the great pics!

Daddy and Zac had lots of fun too!

A Photo Job?

I am thinking of taking pictures of people for a job. I am not really sure how to go about it. My first thought is to take the photos for the client, do some editing, put them on cd and then let the client have the cd to make their own prints from. I would charge a sitting fee for taking the pics and cd, but then they have the cd and can make their own prints as long as they don't sell them. (Who would sell their own photos?)
I could say:
1hr photo session
editing of proofs w/photoshop
archival cd of proofs for printing

I don't know, does this sound like a good idea or not?
Here is an example of photos I have done for clients.

Turning 6 on Sept 6th

Parker turned 6! Oh my goodness, how time flies. It seemed like just yesterday he was born. I don't think that I will ever forget any of my children's births. I don't like to get induced (Dr. agrees), so when my babies are born you just never know for sure when or what to expect.

At my appointment the day before, I was 3 cm, fully efaced, and ready to go. the Dr. said he was on call that weekend and I would probably have a baby soon. The contractions I felt never hurt, so I was feeling good. I prayed that I would sleep all night and that I wouldn't need an epidural this time. I went to bed that night and slept good. The next morning around 6:45, I had a strong pain. So I told Aaron and said that he probably could sleep a while. I called Kathy and said that I thought labor was starting and not to go in to work that day. She said that she would get her things ready. I was excited. The Dr. had said to come to the hospital when the contractions were 5 min apart. So I wasn't worried.

Next thing I know, I had another pain that didn't stop. I rushed to the bedroom told Aaron to get up and I called Kathy back. She said that she wouldn't get there for 20 mins or so. Aaron burst out of bed and called Joe and Kristen. Joe said he could be here soon. We loaded the car and when Joe got there we left and Alex was still sleeping. I got to the the hospital and had Parker at 8:30 that morning. It is the closest I have ever come to having a baby in the car and let me tell you it was scary! I kept telling Aaron to pull over and I think he just drove faster. My prayers had come true though, I got a good nights sleep, had a baby in the morning without medicine and enjoyed the hospital stay.

Parker is sweet, sensitive, stubborn, a great brother, a kind person. He likes to play sports, draw, pull pranks, listen to books, feed cows, play in the mud and drive any type of vehicle he can (tractors, golf-carts, power wheels, bumper cars).
Happy Birthday Parker
I love you
