September in Quotes

September in Quotes

Genesis 9:13 I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my covenant with you and with all the earth. There is probably no pleasure equal to the pleasure of climbing a dangerous Alp; but it is a pleasure which is confined strictly to people who can find pleasure in it. -Mark […]

Camp Barakel, Camp Barakel

My dad and brothers have been attending the Father/Son Retreat at Camp Barakel for as long as I can remember. When James joined the Hutchens family, he was invited into that tradition. And this year, for the first time ever, Corban was finally old enough to join as well. This was not at all on […]

Goodbye, July.

Goodbye, July.

Well, for some reason all these photos got uploaded in reverse order. I’m just happy to be blogging at all (no, Cru, I can’t hear you crying; babies who are taking naps CAN’T.BE.CRYING). So journey with me backwards through July! Becca came to see Paul and Bekah’s tiny house reveal, so of course, we sneaked […]

James was a groomsman and my sister and I sang PLUS my other brother and sister-in-law were both in the wedding party and have two kids, so Grammie and Papa had some kid duties during the […]

Hello (and goodbye) June!

Hello (and goodbye) June!

We enjoyed some perfectly warm days last month. Wading and swimming in the lake are favorite pastimes. Crusoe was particularly tired this day. I feel much braver when a sister joins me! All that red hair. We stumbled upon a carnival kicking off free summer lunches. BOTH CORBAN AND JAEDA FINISHED THEIR READING LESSONS! James […]

A bird’s eye view of the last few months

A bird’s eye view of the last few months

Having a fourth child is hard. (Betcha thought I was gonna say something uplifting and inspiring. HA.) Even our great days (and there are many!) are just plain ol’ hard. So much talking, touching, needing, crying, diaper changing, sock losing, complaining, laughing, screaming, eating, messing, cleaning (I’m really tempted to keep this list going…forever. But […]

Crusoe’s First Days

Crusoe’s First Days

Guys, I’m super sorry, but this post will be short on words and looooong on photos. No time for editing! He’s already three weeks old now! And we’re all doing great. So great. In sleep, in health, in nursing, in harmony. We’re having a blast (like literally a blast…of NOISE…shew, these kids are loud). So […]

The Birth of Crusoe Conrad: NOT a Short Story

The Birth of Crusoe Conrad: NOT a Short Story

The last post ended with Saturday evening, September 10th, wondering if tonight was the night. (It wasn’t, but it was close.) The hard contractions fizzled out by evening, so we went to bed and hoped he would come soon. Sunday morning I had one hard contraction that convinced me to stay home from church. And […]

While we were waiting…

While we were waiting…

Crusoe was due to join our family around September 6th. We’ve had babies as early as 9 days before their due date and as late as on their due date. But when my friends Bryanne and Alisha went a week over with their 4ths, I had this sneaking suspicion that this was foreshadowing for our 4th. (Turns […]
