So, I totally got the idea to do a week in the life thing here from Kyrie. I know it really comes from Ali Edwards, it's something of a scrapbooking "prompt", and there is a specific week for it each year, but I'm just doing my own thing. I wanted to post this last night, but honestly, by the end of a long day (I got home at almost 11pm), I was just too tired. And then our mornings are so busy. So here goes!
-played horsies under the kitchen table before breakfast.
-had potatoes and migas for breakfast. I talked to Sarah on the phone while making it.
-washed dishes more times than I care to recount.
-barely made a dent in the laundry.
-went to James's swimming lesson. Fiona dangled her feet in the baby pool while he had his lesson. At the very end of the lesson, his class went into the baby pool to play "What time is it, Mr. Shark?"
-admired our swim team's trophies while at the pool (first in our league and second in state!).
-went to the grocery store, where Elisabeth walked and read the whole time.
- played outside in an early afternoon thunderstorm -- ten minutes of downpour followed by a long afternoon of stifling humidity.
-James made a pictorial list of the things he needed to get done (bring the groceries in the house, take out the recycling, get dressed).
-lanolized diaper covers and had a lunch of salad and fruit.
-had an afternoon gymnastics performance.
-I spent the afternoon teaching cello lessons, while my husband (who was home early because he'd had an orientation day) took the kids to Costco for some staples.
-portioned out some of the staples and made a quick and simple supper
-I went out for dinner and drinks with some friends.
In doing this, I wanted to remember to take pictures that were not just "bloggable", but told a story of our day. As I look through the batch, some of which are not the usual "type" of photo I'd share here, I am bemoaning the poor light in our house (this is already generally a problem, but especially on overcast, hazy days like we've been having here lately), and wishing we had a prettier living room. Oh, well, all in good time.
I'm also reminded what a fantastic and lovely little family I have here, and how good it is to have good friends.
