Actually, there are two authors in this family.

And if you have an elementary aged student, you have probably seen their books in the Scholastic book order that is stuffed into backpacks each month.

Their daughter Libby was the one who called me, so I didn’t realize who her dad and brother were until minutes before everyone arrived at the homestead. And then come to find out that this family is full of amazing super smart people…who are just like you and me.

The jokes flew about tight jeans on one brother to the long locks on the other brother. The grandkids were happy to snuggle with all of the extra attention from aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

And what made the morning even more special is that it was a day that this family set aside to gather from different parts of the United States for a family photo. It was an honor to create these family photos for the Murrie clan to cherish forever.

Of course, I had to get a signed copy of one of their books for my 10 year old son! :)
