Strictly speaking these are pictures from several weeks, squeezed into one post. I’m on instagram now which means that lately my phone camera sees more action than my regular camera… something I will have to balance out. But here are a smattering of pictures I managed to take over the last 2 weeks-
1. My early morning risers huddled near the fire.
2. Art fever has hit our house. The combination of Miss E’s new art books and supplies, and a freshly cleaned and organized art station; have brought on a flurry of drawing and creating.
9. Leveling the ground for the basketball court meant a giant pile of dirt now exists on the back edge of the lawn. It is the children’s favorite place to play. Now when I do laundry I find dirt in the all the pockets and cuffs of their jeans.
10. This is another one of Miss E’s Christmas gifts. She loves doctoring all her stuffed animals and dolls. Before Christmas I went online to find her a nice pretend doctor’s kit but the nice ones where so expensive! I decided to make one myself and save a little money.
I bought a little suitcase for $4.95 at Target and added a the fabric cross to the top. Between the dollar store, pharmacy, and ebay I was able to fill her little case full of fun medical supplies. She has ace bandages, pill containers filled with Smarties, a thermometer, rainbow band aids, and a pink stethoscope. Miss E has doctored everyone in the house many times, we are all very well taken care of.
My thought for the week: Presently I have no worthwhile thoughts. Every part of my limited brain capacity has been taken up with the mechanics of running my house. It is a wonder to me that women make it through the child-rearing years with any brain cells in tact.
