How is it possible that summer is almost over and school will be starting in just a few short weeks?!? Is it normal that the older we get, the faster time seems to fly by?
April and May were a whirlwind here at the studio. Between the launch of our commercial services, the new website, new branding, model shoot and finally our gallery reveal it was a little nuts! I feel as if I blinked....and August arrived! What's more is that while carefully reviewing the studio's schedule yesterday, it has come to my attention that the next 3 months are going to be twice as crazy as the last three...I guess that means I should probably start Christmas shopping now lol!
I came to the conclusion that the pace at which time seems to be flying by, might be what caused me to stop and think when Cole came home with new pictures of the boys. Don't get me wrong, in all reality ANY picture of Easton and Isaac will brighten my day. However, an impromptu photo op on the last evening of harvest was just what I needed to remind me that sometimes it's important to take time to stop and smell the roses...or in this case...the hot, dusty Kansas air.
It was one of the last fields to be cut and Cole decided to take the boys along so they could hunt for bugs. Specifically big juicy grasshoppers to feed our 3 pet turtles Jack, Jill and Lucky. Its an art they've been perfecting all summer and I now have a freezer full of critters to prove it. #boymom
Luckily Cole had his camera. And unlike most times, when we opt to be in the moment and not behind the camera, he decided to quick capture a few precious images of these two completely in their element.
In that moment all I could feel was thankful. Thankful that our boys (and Baby E #3) will get the opportunity to grow up in a supportive, close knit community. Exploring the world around them, getting dirty and spending their evenings catching grasshoppers.
As a side note (just in case Mother Nature is reading this) I specifically schedule one week the end of June for wheat to be cut. No sooner, no later. If we could stick to that schedule it would be much appreciated, thanks.
