Courtney wears sweaters and winter pajama pants all summer long and occasionally walks around the neighborhood like this.


Brynlee completes the majority of her summer packets for school with this face, in this position. I told her they were all due on the first day of school. I may have lied.


Dave rode in the trunk for days while my van was in the shop being fixed. The kids thought it was so cool. It was so embarrassing.


Aubrey and Courtney after summer swim lessons.


The girls arguing over what elf they are going to marry on the Rice Krispies box. It was an intense debate.


Team Kristi— Never forget. He either has on a Hertzog Contracting t-shirt or Team Kristi. Way to keep it in the family.


The girls tried to steal my friend’s baby. It was a little awkward because of their persistence.


Every single time I make coffee… And every single time it blows my mind. I just can’t seem to master this.


Brynlee visits the school nurse a few times a week and at the end of the school year we just HAD to capture this picture. We pay attention to her ailments. I promise.


The girls took pictures of a recent mole of mine getting removed. The doctor and nurse were laughing so much the procedure took much longer than necessary.


This is dinner. Yep! We were not on a road trip. We were at the 7-Eleven in Royersford. We had officially given up and didn’t care what they ate or drank. We literally sat in the parking lot and ate our dinner and acted like people do this everyday.


Maybe every family is like this, but OH MY LORD!! This is sometimes just complete insanity, but such a blessing of a circus.
