ere is another weeks worth of photos that will go into our Project Life album this year. If you are not familiar with this... it is basically a large photo album with divided page protectors, enough for a years worth of photos. Some weeks I don't strictly adhere to the "photo-a-day." I might include another photo within an day or two of that day, or even some other ephemera from life. This is working out to be a really cool way for me to systematically document our everyday life here.
Each week I am posting the photos from the previous week and the explanations that will go into my album as well. I really can't recommend this highly enough; and you don't have to start on Jan 1, either! What a great way to tangibly see God's mercy and blessings in your family's life. Plus, when you are getting old like me, it helps you remember the things that you tend to forget 45 minutes after they happen!
Another nice day.... we have all been waiting for weather like this! Jacob and Gabe spent all day working on their new and biggest-to-date tree fort. Projects like this usually require the dismantling of various other tree forts on our property.... all of the boys like to get involved in this. LOVE seeing them work hard together to accomplish something. Who knows perhaps they'll build me a house someday!
This was a road trip day! My mother, Hannah, Abbie and I drove to Manhattan, KS to see our oldest daughter Micah. She and her husband Joshua recently bought their first home. It was so fun to see them and ooooh and aaaah over their new home!
Daniel. 5. Vivacious. Inquisitive. Garrulous. Lots of fun crammed into a small package. the end.
My early morning view as I was having my quiet time. Truly "the heavens do declare the glory of God!"
Timmy, our three year old, loves to "do school" just like his big brothers and sisters. Oh how hard he works. Love the intensity in his demeanor.
Today all of us went to visit my dear Nana. I saw this "fish-eye mirror" in one of the halls and had everybody gather 'round! Too funny! (and my Nana is doing better! Slowly but surely. Thanks for praying!)
Hannah began playing flute recently. When she goes upstairs to practice Timmy likes to tag along and play too. He plays the recorder while Hannah plays her flute. So adorable. Today I snuck up and caught them in action. I love seeing our older children welcoming their younger siblings into their lives. One of the fruits of homeschooling...
There you have it, another week in our (very ordinary but rich) life. Thanks for stopping by!
