As most of you know by now, our little family relocated to the Sacramento area this summer. Leaving behind our home in North Carolina was one of the hardest things we have had to do. We anticipated it being difficult, as it was the first place that truly felt like “home” to us. It was where Noah started school, where we found our groove with the local Pop Warner and Little League teams, where we met some of the most genuine and Christ loving individuals as well as some of the best teachers and educators that I’ve ever known. While we found a tremendous church here, it is still taking some time to adjust to our new “normal.”

We opted to homeschool this year in an effort to both make the transition easier and avoid the overly liberal school systems as best we could. That in and of itself has been a new kind of adventure that we are all learning together. In an effort to maintain my sense of sanity and humanity amidst being constantly surrounded by my three children and adjusting to our new location, I’ve started shooting again (with my camera, obviously). In an attempt to keep myself accountable, I thought I’d start sharing the images weekly. If you’re following me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen them, but you never can tell.

Happy Monday, friends!
