Favorite Photo(s) Friday - my children

Walk with Zoe Diptych
"They know me in a way no one ever has.
They open me to things I never knew existed.
They drive me to insanity and push me to my depths.
They are the beat of my heart,
the pulse of my veins,
and the energy in my soul.
They are my kids."

~ unknown
  Walk with Zoe 3

I didn't write the above but surely could have
because I've thought and felt every single one of those statements.

Walk with Zoe Diptych 2

They make me laugh until I cry.
And sometimes frustrate the heck out of me.

I couldn't possibly love my children more than I do.

Walk with Zoe 6
(His idea to use 2 sticks to make a mustache).

And couldn't have ever imagined that I'd be in my middle age years
and be a mama to two young children.

I'm grateful for this second and third chance at motherhood and thank God everyday
for my 3 children.
(the big and the 2 littles)

that puppy doesn't look like a puppy anymore. You may be a "middle age Mom" but you are a darn good one.

These pictures of the kids with their dog are some of your best. I feel like I am right there with them.

Have the BEST day!
