Week in the Life // Thursday 7/28

Not a lot of pictures yesterday - very short on sleep Wednesday. (Teaching the boy to sleep through the night is NOT going well). But, I did have some fun ones from the day.

Amy asked me if I'm going to put these pictures in an album and I am hoping to do that next week! I have a plan in my head involving baseball card size sheet protectors and I'm going to put this right into my Project Life album. Now, we'll see how much actually gets accomplished since we are planning on starting school next week. I have participated in Week in the Life for several years now by way of photos so I'm really going to try and do something with the pictures this week.

Breakfast: grits. N2 loves grits and will go through streaks on having me make them for her for breakfast.

Week in the Life // Wednesday 7.27

A look at our Wednesday ... my apologies for the crazy spacing in this post. I was having issues with the pictures and gave up on getting it straightened out.

Morning shots:

Quiet time reading first thing // 1st little one up with me coloring and playing on my phone // my brief computer time this morning - email, read a few blogs (especially checking on those folks that are doing Week in the Life) // getting the boy up // the boy helping with laundry

Thus ends Tuesday. : ) For this, I am almost exclusively using my point and shoot camera that fits in my purse and my iPhone. If I wait until I have a hand free to lug my good camera around, we wouldn't have any pictures at all!
