I decided to join along with Ali Edwards’s Week in the Life project this week. It’s not a “typical” week in that Dear is out of town, my mom is here helping me, and things are all just a little bit different. But I decided to make a point of documenting the here and now this week and jotting a few things down. I’m taking it easy, not putting any pressure on myself. But I figured an attempt at my first Week in the Life will leave me with a photo story I wouldn’t have otherwise — and that’s incentive enough for me.
Here are my photos from yesterday:
We spent some time in the morning cleaning up. Danny did a bang-up job cleaning his room. He learned from his sister. He even folded his blanket. 😉
We actually started the day with an ant infestation, which I didn’t think to take pictures of. Anyway, the ant situation turned into a spraying-with-vinegar situation, which I ended up relegating to my shower. Elora helped too, but I didn’t have a good picture of her participating. =(
Our shoes just as they were by the front door. I think this kind of picture is exactly the type that seems kind of silly, but will be fun to look back on.
This is a very, very mild version of the laundry that calls to me constantly.
What my bulletin board looks like right now.
This picture seems sad. But I love it because it perfectly captures Elora’s little heart and the way she truly feels others’ feelings.
Post-nap good moods. Love them.
It appears that my stripes problem is genetic.
Needlepoint is Nonnie and Elora’s favorite project to do together.
Sweet little Mommy.
Post-nap hair that still looks that way at dinner is also pretty great.
Feet under the table.
After-dinner walk in the golden hour with my golden babies.
They spotted a nest way up high in a crepe myrtle tree.
They had an absolute blast sorting buttons and paper clips fastidiously into muffin tins. Nonnie had the most fun, by far.
Some snuggles while watching Bambi before bed. That movie really is a work of art. And I love Bambi’s mother’s voice and the way she speaks so kindly and gently to Bambi.
I definitely want to get nap pictures, bedtime routine pictures, and other diurnal things like hand-washing, putting clothes on, etc. The little things with their sweet little hands and ways…. I’m not positive about the effect on these pictures. I thought yes when I tried it, and I love the nostalgic, preservation-of-this-moment-in-time feel, but we’ll see…
