Family Day – Five Years

Today marks 5 years since we went to Korea and became a family of 5.

He looks so scared in that picture. It makes my heart hurt.

And now we can’t imagine life without him. It’s weird that we’ve only known him for 5 years. It seems like he’s always been with us.

After looking at that picture this morning, I decided to take a picture of them in the same line up today. Abby was heading out to camp for the week, and Emma was leaving for swim practice, so I told them where to stand and quickly snapped a couple of pictures. Emma’s eyes are closed in one, and Ben looks sad/mad/irritated in the other. But at least he isn’t scared.

    good idea to take new photo today. I thought Abby was going to camp today. The second picture is really good of everyone.

    That’s nice to see. It made me sad to see how scared he looked in the first picture, too. I can’t imagine your family without him!

  3. I’m not sure you realize how good those photos at the top of the page are. A beautiful well-balanced family.
