9, 7, 5 and 3

We are in the midst of magical days.  Did you know that?  

For a brief period of time my children's ages are 9, 7, 5 and 3.

This time period will last about 2 months of every year, and during that time it is SOOOOO much easier for us to answer the question, "How old are your kids?"

But, then lo and behold someone will have a birthday and throw off the perfect counting by 2's.

I'm enjoying it for now.

Here they are in all their 9, 7, 5 and 3 glory (only lined up in order 7, 3, 5, 9):

on a large pile of dirt, because really it is a glorious spot for a picture, no?

So, go ahead and ask me how old my kids are, just don't ask me next week or for the 10 months that follow. 

Yes, someone has a birthday coming up very soon! Who could it be?

Hint:  It's not the sheep, but that one really stuck his neck out for us (sorry, couldn't resist)!

  1. That's too funny! I only have to remember 2 - and the 5 year gap changes to 4 for 2 weeks, so I've got it much easier than you. ;) LOVE all the shots - the kids are adorable as usual! :)

  2. HAHAH...I only have one to worry about. Now I know how my mom felt...I am one of 5 :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
