To tell you the truth, the reason why I took these photos of the boys was becuase Jonathan and Levi had their photos taken at school, but I refused to buy them because they were so ridiculously expensive. I got tons of photos for cheap at Costco and I am so pleased with how they came out. I love Jonathan's freckles and his pretty blue eyes. He is growing up way too fast. He is definitely too big for his britches. Smart remarks, backtalking, and attitude-he's got it all! And he is only 7! When he is happy, he is a lot of fun to be around, but when things don't go his way, look out! One day he told me that I loved the baby more than him! (at that point in time it was probably true!) I honestly am grateful to be Jonathan's mother. I am working on how to understand him and his needs better and how to communicate with him without so much friction. I am sure it is just my pride that is hindering me from being more understanding. I really struggle with this. I'll get there. Here are a couple more candid shots of the 2nd grader.
