Last week I went all shutterbug on my poor family to document a Week in The Life. I’ve done this three times before and I assembled it all as I went. This time I just focused on the photos each day and over the next few days I’m going to be assembling the photos into a digital album that I plan to have printed at blurb.com.
So…here’s a look at some highlights!
First Day Back at School
Working on some photo editing
Isaac had a half day and was the first one home.
Spaced out at snack time.
Working on a Mario paper doll project (homework was SUPER light last week)
3 at dinner. Some nights Dave doesn’t make it home in time. We always set him a place though…Isaac wouldn’t let us do otherwise. :)
Still adjusting to their 6am wake up time.
Post-run bed making.
I’ve been doing all the weird little chores that have stacked up. Like organizing the homework basket.
Waiting for the school bus.
The kids watched Wipeout while I made dinner.
I am bathing someone, you just can’t see him.
There he is!
Andrew’s been using his wii minutes for sword fighting. He sweats SO much while he plays. He takes it VERY seriously.
Laundry was delivered by our new laundry guy. It’s all washed, folded and ready to be put away. All at about 60 cents per pound of laundry! I LOVE our new system. :)
Making a birthday card for my brother.
Again, waiting for the school bus. I was particularly worried because it was over 90 degrees and the bus does not have air conditioning.
Andrew made a birthday card for Uncle Chuck.
I had a shoot that night and I brought some props along.
Cleaning! This was the first time I really deep cleaned this new apartment (even washing the disgusting blinds!). REALLY helps me feel like the place is mine to wash away all the grit from the last tenants.
After school: reading notes from teachers, eating snacks
Making birthday presents for Dave. Little Angry Birds paper dolls.
Pasta night! And Dave made it home for dinner!
Isaac usually needs some after school snuggles.
Andrew’s building a Present Presenting Robot while Isaac plays keyboard.
It’s Dave’s birthday and the birthday boy is home! Time to roll out the Present Presenting Robot, lift the gate and…
There’s a present inside!
Everyone was very excited about the cake. I made a Chocolate Bundt cake, which Isaac called a Donut Cake because of it’s shape.
More block play.
I had a Portraiture Class on Saturday afternoon.
And Dave met me afterwards for a biking date. :)
the boys were up early.
There was a street fair down the block.
And the boys bounced like crazy in the bouncy castles.
They both jump for as long as they can: Andrew smiling and laughing, Isaac with mostly serious expressions (it’s the kind of thing he takes seriously).
Sushi for dinner and a documentary on Antarctica for our Sunday dinner entertainment.
And that’s what I got!
Well, that’s not true…I have hundreds more…but those are the highlights. :) More to come!
