Have you noticed??

…I’ve figured out how to easily post pictures to my blog. And I’ve finally got the camera out again to take some pictures of my cute kids. In honor of the collision of those two circumstances, here’s an old one:


If you were seeing this family in real life, wouldn’t you feel a little bit sorry for that naive set of parents? Looking at this picture, I think I kind of understand why so many people have looked at me in the grocery store and said, “It looks like you’ve got your hands full!” It does look like it.

Nowadays on the rare occasion when someone says that to me, I smile and say, “I’ve got a bunch of good helpers.” It’s true. I didn’t realize how hard those years were until I had the chance to look back on them. Those little ragamuffins have turned into intriguing human beings who actually make my life easier at times. (uh-oh… being reprimanded for staying up too late! bye!)

    It’s so true. It seems like the life of changing diapers, carrying a toddler, nursing an infant, and potty-training is some strange foggy memory. Sometimes it’s a wonder that I survived with my sanity & sense of humor intact. Now comes a whole new phase of life with its own set of challenges & joys. And I have to say, I’m really enjoying this one.

    Yes, I have wondered about the pictures all of a sudden. I do love blogging with pics. BTW – was that you or my other friend Ruthie who commented on my blogger post this week?

    I love those little ragamuffins who are growing up so fast. And I love the pics. I guess you’ll have to show me how to do it.Maybe when the 4 Hunsbergers get together in the camp kitchen in July. Jeannie thinks that sounds like fun, trouble and delicious. At least two of them are experienced at cooking for crowds. I’m counting on you and Cheryl and of course Bill to know what to do.
