It Appears My Phone Has Become My New Camera

Which totally makes sense because it’s not like we spent money to get a nice camera to take pictures of our kids or anything.

We have been up to all sorts of things lately.  The beginning of the week is usually pretty hectic for us…from Monday through Wednesday, we have Jake’s preschool, gymnastics, my class (at night), and my morning Bible study.  So on Thursday and Friday we usually lay around in our pjs for longer than socially acceptable or play with friends.

Jake only has a few more weeks of gymnastics and then we are excited to start swimming lessons in April with both boys!  This could either be complete success or complete disaster.  But we’ll be spending a lot of time at the pool this summer so better freshen up on the butterfly and backstroke while we can.

What, your 1 year old can’t do that?
