Here is Owen working on his painting skills today! I think it is so cute how he has to have two paintbrushes, one for each hand. He really loves to paint and that makes his artist mama very happy!
You can see how messy he gets! We go straight to the bath after painting!
He likes to use my professional paintbrushes...no kiddie brushes for him...he means business!

Last week was insane! School started for me which is a whole other story and we also left for a mountain vacation. It was Owen's first really big trip! We went with our friends Heather and Jessica and their families to the North Georgia Mountains.
Dustin and Me!
The Ladies!!! Heather, Me and Jessica!
It rained most of the weekend but that didn't stop us....oh no!!! We arrived late Thursday afternoon and on Friday we all went fishing and caught 9 rainbow trout. We then cooked them for dinner that night. It was the first time I had ever eaten anything I had caught. The food was good all the same! On Saturday we went for a 1 mile hike! YES! In the rain!!! With a baby, ok 14 month old, strapped to my chest!!! YIKES! The view was beautiful though but I was glad when we got back to the cars! Finally on Sunday we took the scenic route to Helen, Ga for some beer and bratwursts! Yummy!
She wasn't upset when we were eating them later that night!
Getting ready for our hike!
The reason for the hike! A beautiful waterfall!
It has been a busy week back home as well. I still have felt all week like I am not in a routine for school yet, and my sister came to town so we spent most of the week at my Mother's house. Thus my home is still in disarray and there is mucho laundry yet to be done! Here's to getting back to normal life: teaching, mothering, photographing every bride known to man, editing every photo know to man, laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, housework....wait...can I go back to the mountains!!???!!! :)
