I just filled up my contact case with solution and tried to take contacts out of my eyes that weren’t there. I took them out about 7 hours ago.
Date night ⛳️
Photo challenge, Day 3: Precious
Not from today, but she did wear this same dress and boots today, so… 💞
Photo challenge, Day 1: Abstract
Ro made a “pizza bracelet” for us all to share. All red so it won’t show stains. There was a lesson in there on why it shouldn’t be white or yellow also since her goal was to be able to wear it and not stain it. 😊❤️
A very important reminder from Rowyn
I thought I was going to “journal” this here on Monday, but here it is Saturday. These things still happened last week, though. And I still want to document them. So…
On Monday, we went ice skating. Highly recommend when it’s 109 degrees (feels like) outside. Kids even fell asleep on the way home. Or came close and acted like they did. Either way, it was a quiet ride home.
Tuesday: We had a homeschool PE day in the morning. Built a double Picasso Tiles marble run and cut flowers with my girl in the afternoon.
Spent the day at home on Wednesday, and Ro helped me make spaghetti for a mommy and kids night while Daddy went to dinner with some friends.
Thursday: lift rides in the church
On Friday, we stayed home. I asked if the kiddos wanted to jump on the trampoline before it got too hot and while it was in the shade. They did. I grabbed the hose to water some plants, and it ended up attached to a sprinkler pointed at the trampoline. Sweet summertime.
Rowyn calls receipts sareets, and I love it so much.
Wish I hadn’t misplaced the tape measure earlier this afternoon while hanging a little gallery wall in my daughter’s room… Because now I need to measure my feet.
Up late researching safety razors and leather shoes
Painted up high today. Church foyer looking fresh.
Spent 5 minutes in my outdoor shed earlier today. In 109 degrees (that’s factoring in humidity). Pretty sure that could’ve counted as a full length sauna session. 🥵
7:30am swimming lessons for the kids this week. Plus random appointments throughout the week. 3 days in. It’s 2:00pm, but legitimately feels like 6:00pm. I. Am. Tired. Makes me thankful for our homeschool routine and that it doesn’t involve getting up and getting out super early every day.
Louisiana’s Old State Capitol
Going through 4th of July (actually, July 3rd) pictures. And just really love this of my girl and my cousin’s pups (Luna + Sadie). The dogs wore out before Ro did. She had so much fun. And she looks like she’s glowing a little here. ✨ It was somehow such a really nice evening in the scorching south.
Read outside this morning with our drinks of choice. Left to right: B - chai latte, Me - coffee, Ro - OJ
Green screen at the local news station today
Made sparkling strawberry lemonade, and it was yum (and pretty).
Uh oh. I just found an heirloom rose website. Now my dreams of a fence line of roses is exploding in my head.
Proud of this painter 💙🌴🌊
