Wordful Wednesday

This weeks Wordful Wednesday is about how our lives have changed in the last 4 years in our family.
We used to have time to make little weekend jaunts to the snow, or to the park for a picnic.
Just four short years ago, time went by so much slower than it does now.
Now it's SAT tests on weekends, and tournaments, and games, and ... and... and...
everything else!
These are pictures of my little boys ... 4 years ago.
How they have changed!

Johnny hadn't lost all his teeth yet...

Alex rarely smiled with teeth showing because they were crooked then... And William didn't mind if I had my Mom bleach his hair surfer blonde, like his brothers. Doesn't he look like such a small fry here? He's 10 in the picture. {{Sniffle}} {{sigh}}

  1. So True....

    I always thought we would have more time to relax once the boys got older. I was wrong...never a spare moment :-)

    I guess there will be a day for relaxing and doing what we want...and I am pretty sure I will look back and miss all the craziness of our what our lives are like now!!!
