So life goes on

Strangely enough it really does. Kids still need to be fed, clothes need to be washed, floors need to be vacuumed and wood still needs be brought in before the fall. It’s hard to just keep plugging away and ever so often during the day, I find myself starring at the sky thinking about C asking the one question we will never get the answer for – why?

This sad experience has made me think about everyday life, how precious it really is and how we simply can not afford to take the time with our kids for granted. So to embrace that, I have promised myself to take more pictures of the ordinary day in our house, the everyday mundane things because at the end of the day that is what life is mostly about.

I found this little poem surfing the net one day and it just says it so beautifully. I don’t remember where I found it and I don’t know who wrote it, otherwise I would have left credit for that.

Normal day. Let me be aware of the treasure you are.

Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart.

Let me not pass you by in a quest for some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so

So here is my first attempt at freezing memories of everyday in our family. This Day Iben was playing with a friend, so she is nowhere to be found in these pictures.

My two sleepy kids greet each other in the morning. Both having slept in our bed.

I need coffee. It’s raining outside.

Sønnich has gotten into his clothes and is ready to face the world

Are you coming Mor?


Lunch, drinking buttermilk

Babies need playtime too

Getting pretty strong at 3 months

Nap time is needed after hard workout. Still raining so get to sleep inside.

Big brother plays while little sister sleeps.

After naptime is over, guess who is back from work?

He must be happy to see her!

Least but not last, Liv in action performing live for grandparents in Canada.

All taken on saturday and converted to B/W because the day was dreary and boring and so very dark.

I truly love my new camera, it’s awsome and makes me take more pictures which I will have to, to get to know it better. So check in again soon as I will continue to work on my new goal and take more pictures of ordinary life.
