One of the many lessons I learned from Mrs. Mabry is that "the only thing that stays the same is that everything changes." That seems to be the case with education, mothering, and life in general.  And lately, as I've had a challenging first few days of summer, I find comfort in the fact that each stage has it's joys and hardships that should be embraced and then freed so that we can move to the next stage with grace.  I think it's the "holding on to" that can cause tension and unhappiness.  

So tonight I decided to load the girls up and take advantage of the incredible Larkspur that their Daddy planted "just for them!" If you haven't driven through Squire Creek in the past few weeks you should! It is truly lovely and makes for a great photo op!

I feel like these photos reveal so much about my girls and where they are in their lives. I really don't even need to add captions because the speak volumes. Each of my girls are special, lively, unique, and ever changing.

 Harper is my beautiful, free-spirited, know it all 2nd grader....

I die... lovely

 And Baylor is my oh so precious, quirky, sweet spirited, could charm the stinger off a bee 4 year old...

 and sometimes she gets frustrated with sister...
 But she is learning to take her own strides behind that shy smile...

And then there is Josephine Joy... my precious!

Enjoy wherever you are! Bloom!

The many faces of Baylor Kate:
