A month in photos…..
I have been TERRIBLE about blogging lately. I’ve been flooded with blogs on my Facebook feed – – – – everyone and their sink’s opinion about how “screen time” is terrible / essential for our children, what to feed them – how to organize their days – how to teach them to be brave / cautious / humble / confident – how to get them to eat – how to avoid arguments with a preschooler (what?!?) – about how gluten and sugar and cow’s milk and tomatoes are all from the devil, but also how your child will become ill without them – all the way down to what to say to them so they’ll be successful people. I’m blogged out. Me and my opinions need some quiet time. I don’t read anything anymore. I’m retreating to my Anne of Green Gables for awhile. Thus, you get a lovely little post with just pictures & some captions. That’s all you’re really after anyway, right? Please enjoy some photos of my happy, healthy, seemingly well-adjusted children making their magical way through reality. And the cat. He’s in here, too. 🙂
It’s been a wet but lovely spring. I am LOVING our back yard this year 🙂
So is this guy.
Claire has mastered napping in the car. I spend a lot of time in random parking lots reading / napping with her.
The fence across the street has a hole in it. Imagine our surprise to find it was occupied..
St Paddy’s Day party – the Play Group version
I didn’t cook for this round or take many photos, but it was great to have everyone over 🙂
THIS is what it looks like when I attempt to sew these days. Sad.
Playgroup is always a great catalyst for actually cleaning the house. It feels good when it’s finished 🙂
My wee little lass
St Paddy’s Dinner – just a handful of close friends – much different from years past
Didn’t even take photos when everyone was over.
THIS girl was so excited. 🙂
And THIS guy wins our Youngest St Paddy’s Guest Ever award. SO precious.
Yup. The yard. It’s great.
Awesome playdate with some friends – we went to a farm. In Bellevue. FREE. With loads of little farm animals. Awesome.
She’s not just walking now – she climbs. She’s pretty good at UP, but DOWN remains a mystery.
Happily planting some peas….
These two LOVE the green car. I never thought I’d do this thing at the grocery store…..but it truly keeps them occupied the whole time.
Lots of smooches on the bus the other day…
We spent an afternoon on campus – it was fun to talk to Evelyn about college. She wants to be a Mama and a Doctor. We shall see….
The Cherry Trees were all in bloom. SO pretty.
I took these next few on a walk home from school with the girls. We’ve been walking a LOT lately.
Claire loves to help clean. Woohoo!
It’s rainbow season in Seattle!
Sometimes it’s all just too much for this one. 🙂
Heading to the library after school with her bestie…
Love the library 🙂
Evelyn is rediscovering markers. She’s been into stencils lately.
I’ve returned to running. Sort of. I love it – but finding time isn’t easy.
Took a “run” with Evelyn the other day. She ran for 3min 24sec. Then she walked for 45 more minutes. It was an awesome “run”.
We found some ducks. And trees. And stuff. (Evelyn’s description to Andrew later)
At the Park! Yay Park!
“LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!!”
OH MY GOD I LOVE YOGURT!
And she LOVES to go outside.
“Out there? Please??”
Thanks, Grandma Dottie, for the sweater 🙂 She gets loads of compliments!
Evelyn helps me cook….sort of…
“Should I poke him? I think I should poke him…”
Mostly…they are great together.
The princess in my cabinets. Evelyn dressed her.
“MAMA! Look at this!”
Watching the front roll in….
And more rainbows 🙂
