A lot of photos this week and they don’t even cover all the craziness of this week. I am guessing it’s more than usual because Monday was a holiday. Each week I fret I am not taking enough photos and then I end up with too many!! Nathaniel’s school is covering colors and shapes this week but he still doesn’t have them down much. I would worry but I am determined to worry less this year. He’s been a joy to have around. He loves wearing his fireman hat and making “bad guys” out of legos and shooting other legos or people. He’s been playing by himself and entertaining himself quite a bit. Still demanding and getting more and more vocal. David’s also doing great. He’s got a really good best friend at school who came over for a playdate this week and it was wonderful seeing how much they like each other. I am so grateful he adjusted to his school wonderfully. Besides reading and writing and chores, he likes to spend time on the lego gallery so he can look at the kinds of things other people built with legos.
Jake’s work is going well, too and I he is maybe finally recovering from being sick for so long. And I’ve had a busy but great week. I had book club (The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet) and I got to go to Cirque de Soleil Michael Jackson. Both were awesome. I also had to move the site over which sucked but now it’s so so much better.
This weekend is going to be a quiet one. I just plan to be with the kids and work on my savor project and maybe art journal a bit. I’ve been not so great at keeping up with the art journaling lately so I want to see if I can change things up a bit.
Anyhow, here are some highlights from last week:
Nathaniel glueing our letters down.
David working on his book of good memories.
David got this circuit set for Christmas and loves playing with it.
And I love those blue eyes.
Nathaniel found this old old minibook I made and went through all the pages, naming all the letters.
Big boy building cool things.
little boy watching.
nathaniel coloring his letters.
my funny boy.
who always makes me laugh.
more circuit fun.
nathaniel invented his own game with them too.
And then they played together.
when it was time to put stuff away nathaniel was not happy.
but as he always does, he got over it.
and then we took some shots with the hat.
