missing australia...

Just having a look through some of the 4000 photos I took on our trip to Australia this summer...and wishing we were back there, hanging out on some amazing beach with the Mallyons. We miss you guys...

one of my favorite subjects...

of course, I have three! Griff is usually the most game to have his photo taken though...and today, he actually asked me if I'd come outside and take his photos...umm...yes!!!

slipping through my fingers...

When I saw Mamma Mia (twice!) this summer...I fell in love with the lyrics to this song - I must have missed it when it was an Abba song. I know it's written about a little girl, but I changed the she's to he's, and thought I'd post the lyrics with my boys "off to school" photo.

It's a melancholy day for me today...first day of school - nobody wanted me to walk them...and Parker's 12th birthday...just feeling like the time is flying by...

Slipping Through My Fingers...

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see whats in his mind
Each time I think Im close to knowing
He keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers...

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Schoolbag in hand he leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile...

he's 12!

Wow...twelve years ago at this time...I was phoning everyone I could think of, and telling them all about my gorgeous new baby boy...we were so EXCITED!!! Fast he's 12. He brings such laughter to our lives - yes, A LOT of laughter...and he makes us proud daily! Happy Birthday Parker...hope your day is perfect!
