Photo Friday 2014 ~ Week 43 ~

This post is 5 weeks and 3 days late.  Just now I had to look up when my last Photo Friday post was and I didn't even realize that much time had passed.  I'm going to try to finish up the year now that I realize there are less than 10 weeks left!  What?  How is that even possible?!  I feel like I now need to start Christmas shopping.  I usually wait until the last minute and this year will probably be no different.  I know you are all probably wanting an update on my health and I will just let you know that I am going to start chemo soon, but I am feeling fantastic as of right now.  I'm sure that will change, but it's only temporary.  It will go fast (I hope) and then my hair will grow back slow (I hope not).  I hope I will learn some things from going through it and I will be able to touch people I come into contact with.  That's my prayer at least.  I'm not exactly looking forward to it, but I am looking forward to getting it over with, so there is kind of a weird sort of anticipation in the wait.  So far, I've just done a lot of reading about what to expect and I cut my hair.  I figured it would be good to get the kids used to seeing me with short hair so that it won't be so shocking to them later on.  I've had short hair before so it wasn't really that big of a deal and I actually really like it.  Go to my Instagram if you want to see a pic.  Everyone tells me it makes me look younger, so yay for that!  

This post is all over the place, but I really just wanted to share some photos I took on Friday of my kids.  They have been amazing through all of this.  They are very sweet and caring with me and they get worried a little bit here and there but really all they need is a few words of reassurance and they are good.  I try to keep to their routine as much as possible because I think that's important for kids and for me, honestly.  I want us to still go to the park and do school and all the normal stuff because it really just helps us all to feel normal in a situation that is anything but.  So, I'm going to stop rambling now and just share the pics already.  

I feel like these photos are almost boring in their normalcy, but it's what I'm craving right now, so I guess it makes sense.  Here's my boy doing some schoolwork on the balcony.  He caught me taking pics which is why he covered his face.  Stinker.

My cutie.  She wasn't in the mood either!  Her mad face is actually pretty cute.  I love her eyelashes in that one on the left.

Her brother got her to smile again.  She's looking so grown up and pretty lately.  Or maybe I'm just being sentimental.

They posed themselves and requested I take this one.  I'm so grateful for these two and their silly antics and sweet smiles.  They make my days so full.

I'll be back next week but maybe not on Friday. We've got a big weekend planned. ;)
