Us Right Now

Each month I capture snippets of us right now, the good and the bad of each individual, and us as a family.
We are putting up the Christmas tree today

We are all ready for holidays to start

We are getting better at family photos
He loves the challenges of his job

despite the sadness of losing someone "on his watch"

He wants to get stuck into some gardening

but hurt his back last time he tried
She knows exactly what to get everyone for Christmas

but hasn't started shopping yet

She is excited about making plans for next year

{but more excited about coffee and cake without sharing}
He has had a troubled month

way too many detentions and outbursts

He turned 14

but sometimes behaves likes he's 2
She has been following Douglas' lead

with outbursts and rotten behaviour

She makes up for it quickly

when she spends time with Sophie and Riley
He is excited to finish reading groups at school

and decorate the classroom for the last couple of weeks

He can't wait to sing Christmas carols in the choir

and tell Santa what he wants this year
She is full of words

meanie, buddy hel, no, love you, high five

She follows the kids endlessly

and loves helping dad on his days off
