Mamatography Weeks 10-13: Sibling Love & Lily Kate


This post is part of the Mamatography 2014 Project with Diary of a First Child and Momma Jorje.

We are taking (at least) a photo a day, a collage or a picture each week to keep a record of our year. Join us at any point during the year and start sharing your own daily photos!

I took a month off of writing here.  There are many reasons why I stopped writing, the main reason is that I just didn’t know what to write and honestly I really didn’t want to.  My heart was breaking for a family that is close to my heart and the last thing I wanted to do was log on and post a recipe or photos of our rather normal week spent as a family. How could I when I was thinking of how NOT normal their family life had become in the blink of an eye, how could I not put myself in their shoes?- the emotions are never ending.

I am working on a post highlighting this amazing family, the struggles that they are facing, and the many ways that  you can help to support them if you desire – so please stay tuned!

Today I am going to catch up on my Mamatography project.  Simply going though the photos has caused me to reflect with a broken heart on the emotions that our dear friends are dealing with and the long healing journey that they are on.  I usually post a photo a day but this post will be a bit different, I am going to give highlights of  weeks 10 -13 of 2014, here they are….

Week 10

Days 64-70:  March 4 – 10, 2014

Sibling snuggles….


Silly sisters….


Week 11

Days 71-77:  March 11 – 18, 2014

We witnessed an amazing performance by the Peking Acrobat’s on a homeschool field trip with friends.  I guess I didn’t have my phone because I didn’t have a pic ( it was an amazing show!) but here are a few of our favorite friends that we joined on the outing, Lily & her oldest sister Gracie.


Week 12

Days 78-84:  March 19 – 25, 2014

I knew that my friend was taking her daughter Lily to the lab for blood work and sent her a ‘good luck’ text in the morning.  The texts that I received throughout the day were heartbreaking.  Lily, her amazing 4-year-old daughter, had been diagnosed with leukemia.  I couldn’t breathe and I could only imagine how this equally amazing mama was feeling.  Team Lily Kate was formed to help and support this family on their long healing journey.


Week 13

Days 85-91:  March 25 – 31, 2014

I looked out my kitchen window and was stunned when I saw this growing amongst the weeds.


An orange (the ribbon color for leukemia) Lily.  She has to , she WILL beat this and I will do all that I can to be there for this family.
