Day 3 of this project. By the time I get to wednesday, all the picture taking of our everyday life starts to feel repetitive. How many times - and from how many different angles - can I take a picture of someone practicing the piano? But this is where I know I have to power through.
A peek at our wonderfully ordinary, everyday life.
6:10 AM - Making lunch for school. Which can be a tricky thing for Payton. He doesn't really like traditional sandwiches, so we have to get creative. PB&J on a mini bagel was a slam dunk this week.
6:45 AM - These two. Headed out the door to school. They get along SO so so so well. Like, I can't even remember the last time I heard them argue - I'm talking months, but probably years. They are undoubtedly best of friends.
7:23 AM - Walking to school this morning. It's somewhere in the 60's and the sun is coming up later and later. I noticed her super dry/chafed knees - side effects of playing goalie - and reminded her that she needs to put lotion on them.
12:43 PM - I made 4 or 5 batches of green slime (glue + water + Borax) in preparation for Anna's halloween class party. And yes, I played with it before packaging it up.
1:58 PM - Went out to check the mail and decided to look up. Love all the lines and wispy shades of light in this tree. The cicadas also LOVE these trees in the summertime.
2:24 PM - When Scott walks Anna home from school they take the "shortcut" over the fire access gate. It's not my favorite, but dad's gotta be a dad. And yes, there is a Do Not Enter sign posted there with a minimum $75 fine. But we're assuming/hoping that only applies to vehicles, and not to 9 year olds. Our neighbors haven't turned us in yet!
2:54 PM - Reviewing spelling words with Anna. Village, suppertime, occurrence . . . . She wasn't very happy when I made her write her misspelled words 10 more times. "But that isn't part of the homework!!!" Sorry, this is called mom homework.
6:28 PM - Choir concert. Conner is in the advanced choir this year and we are so happy because they finally sound good! (The beginning & intermediate choirs are just doing their best). Tonight, one of their songs was a medley from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Loved it. Also, Conner got to play the triangle for "Thunderstorm."

This week I am documenting our everyday lives along with Ali Edwards and her project Week in the Life.
