A portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2013.

Her: Digging in the dirt at the playground. At nearly 13 months she is into everything. 

Him: Getting ready to pick his dad up from the airport. He drew our house, then himself and his sister on either side of me, then his dad, then his big brother, who has also been away.
When the time came he stood super straight by the arrival gate, welcome board before him, and waited. Maybe the best thing about travelling for work is being reunited again.

    1. thanks kellie! I love watching him draw. and it was very cool at the airport to see all the tall besuited men standing in a row with their official name signs, then this guy, less than half their size, holding his little sign and waiting for his dad to come home.
