a little bit of this and that

I should be in bed, but I'm enjoying the view from my living room window instead. My mind is full and it's nice to have a quite house to think and unwind. The mail was full of advertisements for back to school sales already. I still feel like Summer just started and everybody is getting ready for school. It hit me that this is our last year that a school schedule won't effect our daily life. The thought makes me a little sad. I like the simplicity of our life and these young years with my kids. 

Caleb and I are really thinking about what to do for school. As much as we love Idaho, their public schools are ranked pretty low nationally. I'm open to homeschooling, but right now it feels like more of a default option that one we're really excited about. We have some time to think and pray about it, but this evening it's heavy on my mind. The weight of wanting to offer the most for our children is a heavy one, but the knowledge that we can trust God with all the things in our life is stronger. 

As you've probably noticed with inconsistent blog posts, Summer has been busy. I could probably make more time to blog, but I've enjoyed the silence. Although, I find that I'm not as disciplined to write down things about the children that I don't want to forget. I've scribbled little things down and scratch paper and it's waiting to be put in baby books. We spent two weeks in California, that we're very sweet. Wonderful time with family and friends, and I was able to meet my newest nephew. We came home and jumped into VBS, a first for me. We had a good week. And now, my sister is in town visiting for a week. 

We are home owners, which requires a post to itself. We're very excited and have already jumped in to make it our own. The cabinets are newly painted and colors are picked for the other rooms. I'll be excited to get everything back in it's place, but for now I'm trying to embrace a little extra chaos so we can get it done. 

The day is done and maybe this is the start to some more posts soon.

peonies

 Spring is far gone as we reached 100 today, but I found these pictures I took this when everything was just starting to bloom. As I took some of these I noticed Vanessa, who is always by my side, kissing the blooms. She's delicate and beautiful and I love that we do everything hand in hand. These are some favorite pictures of mine. 









We're off to California in the morning. I won't be writing while I'm gone, but I've got lots to write about when I get back. You can keep up with us through Instagram though if you'd like, jnbussell
