Photos of Our Typical Day. 6

Photos of Our Typical Day.

Do you realize the summer is nearly half over now? Soon it’s going to be time for Rosie to start Kindergarten.  We’re homeschooling, so she’s not really going anywhere, but we have to keep an attendance record for the state. I have to send a letter to the board of education stating our intent to homeschool this August!  For real, it will be official.  I will have accepted the responsibility. What a huge responsibility it is!  We’ve been doing schoolish things already–we’re...

This is Summer. 3

This is Summer.

I’ve been busy living life. Go figure, right? Instagram makes it so easy to snap pictures with my iPhone and create quick memories.  I don’t have a lot of time to edit real photos lately.  I even tested prints from iPhone photos, I got 5×5’s, and they came out great.  The ones I got printed were Hipstamatics.  I bet the Instagrams will be even better!  (I got them printed from WHCC, the professional place I use for clients.) Check out my fridge!  These are the 5×5...

Cupcake Evening. 2

Cupcake Evening.

I have one sick, miserable baby over here. Poor sad Ada!  She’s got snot pouring from her nose, and every time she lays down she coughs and gags over and over. This is a nasty virus–first a fever for three or four days, then a terrible cold.  The neighbor girl down the street has the exact same thing, first fever and then cold symptoms.  Yuck. If I catch this I will be totally knocked off my feet for a week and our house...

How Does Your Garden Grow? 3

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Turns out Ada didn’t have a fever from sunburn.  Her temperature climbed higher, and every time the Motrin wore off it would shoot right back up to 102.43 exactly.  Weird. No other symptoms. The last time she had Motrin was at 4 this morning.  She’s been mostly ok today.  She didn’t nap though.  I don’t know what’s going on with her.  Maybe a random virus, because it doesn’t seem like an ear infection and she has not a single other sign...

Burnt. 3

Burnt.

      I sunburned Ada yesterday evening. I feel so bad! We got out our little pool on the back porch for the first time.  Ada absolutely *loved* it.  So did Rosie.  We have a big 10 foot offset umbrella, so they were partially in the shade.  I figured with it being five in the afternoon and not in full sun they would be fine.  We only stayed out for about an hour. Rosie isn’t sunburned at all. Neither am I. Last...

Day of Firsts. 4

Day of Firsts.

My Ada is a wild child.  Here she is this morning.  First pig tails ever in her hair today.  :)     I don’t know what Ada’s deal is.  She is constantly running, actually running, and into every single thing. I feel like my head is spinning!  Blink for one second and she’s climbed up on the back of the couch.  Go to the bathroom and she’s pulled out a box of crackers and is stomping on them while they’re still in the...

Pre-Mother’s Day. 1

Pre-Mother’s Day.

I am my midwife’s on call assistant right now because her regular assistant is graduating from college today. How very, very exciting!  So far no one has given birth.  May 7th isn’t over yet though.   Today we went out to lunch with my in-laws for Mother’s Day.   We went to a local place.  It’s right on the river.  Ada enjoyed eating on the balcony over looking the river once she realized she could throw her food over the edge...

A couple of things I love. 2

A couple of things I love.

Look at these birds.  Aren’t they absolutely ridiculous?   This is one of my Silkie chicks.  They look like scary prehistoric creatures. I love them.  (If you know me, you might know how I love ridiculous things.)   Speaking of things I love, I decided to try out the Instagram app today. I think I love it almost as much as my Silkies. It’s similar to the Hipstamatic app, but the photos don’t have as much grain.  The Instagram seems to give better quality pictures in...
