project life 2015–week 16

also sunday:  just hanging with my favorite girl and taking selfies. this was after she finished giving me a “fancy” new hairdo…

project life 2015–week 15

Easter Sunday!! layla sang and played bells with the children’s choir. she also had a solo with the adult choir. the piece was “mercy tree” and it was BEAUTIFUL. so proud of her!051

traditional afternoon egg hunt, set up by grandpa!2015-04-064

monday: shane and layla made chocolate chip cookies… well, layla did. shane licked spoons and ate dough.005

tuesday: ah yes, heat wave! it was a dry, sunny day. for me, that equals laundry on the line. apparently for layla and micah, it equals water play and sunbathing under umbrellas…?007

wednesday: the people who live across the street from my parents have free-range poultry of varying kinds. their guinnea hens can be found in all sorts of odd places, including the very top of their 2 story house.008

thursday: happy dog with TWO crusty casserole dishes to clean out.009

friday: micah, playing DS mariokart with an audience of his new stuffed baby mario and baby luigi.011


apparently porch railing = balance beam to this gymnast. and a shot of my dad’s gorgeous tulips. 003  065

project life 2015–week 14

sunday: the kids choir sang in church. yes, there are just 3 of them… started as 5, now we’re down to 3…066

monday: layla was sick last thursday and I made her skip gymnastics. so we were back at the gym on monday to do a make up class. I was impressed with the things this coach was having them do… handstands on the beam, roundoffs off the beam, etc… and then after the class, layla declared, “I hope I never have to go on monday again. it was awful. I felt like I was in a level one class!”… so apparently I need to pay closer attention to what she’s learning on thursdays.083

tuesday: trying out some different jewelry looks… totally loving the “love is patient” window frame with the wrap bracelet and the doubled up “over the heart” chain.2015-04-063

thursday: baseball!! micah’s first baseball game ever. his team is the white sox and he’s #41 there in the outfield. he had a good game, and had his first hit at his first at-bat!018

friday: money-pit dog is at it again! thursday evening, bonez was tearing around in the driveway and managed to tear one of he dew claws. so, a trip to the vet had them wanting to remove it, but they couldn’t do it right then. so they sent us home with antibiotics and pain meds (which, I’m pretty sure, make him sleepy), and we had to come back that evening. and then we went home with a bandaged leg and the cone of shame…2015-04-061

friday: oh, micah. he’s become obsessed with youtube videos of people playing mariokart. so now he makes his own… and narrates them… it sounds cute, but it’s really just annoying.042

saturday: free entertainment with the cone of shame. watching bonez try to center his food bowl under it so he could eat was hysterical. and then micah decided to wear the cone as a lampshade.2015-04-062


every monday morning, I come into my classroom to find that my automatic paper towel dispenser has barfed into the sink over the weekend. the thing is possessed.

also, there may have been a slight glitch with the library website. I swear I do not owe that much in fines!072 071
