Our Lives, Lately

Busy times in our neck of the woods!  So much going on now that the kids are in school.  Concerts, open houses, conferences and the like. 

I’ve been running lots of races…and now I’m training for my first half marathon in May 2014!  I’ve lost 107 pounds now…I feel amazing!

Warning…lots of photos coming up…It’s so hard to choose!

Project 52 of 2012| Week 34

Chantelle McMillan 2012

Another busy week in the books!  We are getting so close to the beginning of the new school year.  As of today, there are only 8 days left of summer vacation!  This is going to be a very different school year seeing as all three kids will be in school all day.  Aaron is starting 8th grade, Taylor will be in 3rd and Miss Emma is starting 1st grade.  They are growing up so quickly!

My photo for week 34 is:

Have a great week!

Project 52 of 2012 | Week 32

Chantelle McMillan 2012

It was a regrouping week this week.  =)  I had lots of unpacking and laundry to do from vacation, plus just getting used to being back home.  We had a great trip.  If you haven’t seen the photos yet, you can see them here.

On Sunday, the day after we got back, I had back to back photos sessions.  It was a lot of work, but it was also 2 1/2 hours of fun times and lots of laughs.

My photo for this week is from the 2nd session.  These kiddos are my best friend’s kids.  They live in Colorado, but were here visiting family.  They are a hoot!  I took photos of them 2 years ago…it’s so fun to watch them grow up!
