I have friends who display photos of their 3 or 4 children, smiling and hugging. My little ones, however, have yet to perfect that particular look.

I believe these tears were the result of Elisha wanting to hold Josiah and Madelyn wanting to hold Josiah and Josiah not wanting to be held by either of them.

Can you see the family resemblance between Madelyn and Josiah in that first photo?


A couple of weeks ago, we were cleaning up after rest time and Elisha presented me with these:
He said that he had dropped them and then tried to fix them to get the one side to match the other. I don't think he quite got it right.

Fortunately, the kind woman at the glasses store was able to bend them back and they now look completely normal. Amazing.


Maddie loves shoes; we often find her trying on the shoes of other family members. Yesterday we discovered that the issue is much deeper. It applies to socks as well.


These are just a few of the photos that have been rescued from our digital camera. Since the date function is off and needs to be reset, I'm not really sure when they were taken...I'm guessing this is Josiah at 2 months or so.

This is Josiah at almost 3 months with Corban Resiwig who is 9 months (I think). Josiah tends to be at the top of the growth curve and Corban is closer to the bottom. We parents got a kick out of how close they were in size. It was also nice to hang out with Marty and Jaclyn for a bit.

Photos of My Kids Before They Graduate

If it were not for Shannon, I would have no post tonight. Not to mention no photos of my kids before they turn 18 and move out of the house.

All of our recent photos have taken up permanent residence in our digital camera and may not be seen by human eye until I get up enough initiative to take some time (10 whole minutes maybe) and download them.

I'll try to get to it...really.

But until then, you have these lovely photos for your viewing pleasure that actually look like my children. I'm not sure if it's the camera or the photographer or a little bit of both, but Shannon really captured *the look* of the Womack kiddos. Especially Elisha.

So, thanks, Shannon, and enjoy!

English Lesson

Elisha: How do you spell "wand"?

Me: As in "magic wand"?

Elisha: Yes.

Me: (slowly as he writes) W - A - N - D

Elisha: (after only writing W-A) No, not "wand" (using short a sound) "wond" (using short o sound)

Me: I know, it's spelled with an "a" and it makes the short "o" sound.

Welcome to the English language, buddy.
