Clearly I’m having trouble keeping up with Week in the Life this year. I took all of the pictures and made a few notes, but actually putting together these long posts, at this moment in time, is a struggle. I’ve considered just completely scrapping the project several times now, but I really try to do it once a year because these are the posts that I enjoy looking back at. And I think with life being as busy as it is, it’s perhaps all the more important to try to record a few details.
Iain and Elijah stayed after work for a lesson. We woke to a dull, grey and dreary day. The kids wanted a bath. I thought I would sit on the bathroom floor embroidering. It sounded like a lovely and relaxing way to start the day, but ended up being stressful and frustrating.
Together we fixed brunch: yams, sage and onion sausage patties, sauerkraut and rooibos tea and filled the dehydrator with apple slices, while listening to an Easter Sparkle Story. Realized we are not eating eggs right now, what are we going to do for Easter?!?
Brunch all together, alongside a game of quiddler.
At every meal this little munchkin eats and drinks what she would like of her own share and then scoots herself over to the other side of the table to see what of interest might be left over there.
We normally go out in the morning for our walk before her nap, but today she was very tired and asked to go to sleep early.
Homeschool work while baby sleeps, heavy on geography and measurements.
Trying to find a bit more variety on AIP, I made a whole turkey for dinner, along with squash and gravy, thinking we would be able to eat leftovers throughout the week. Mairi and I managed to find a bit of fresh thyme to season it, under all the old growth.
More supplies in the mail. It’s been a strange week that way, so much happening all at once!
A small plane flew over while we were on our nature walk. She mistook it for one of her brother’s little quadcopters and pulling off her mitten, held out her hand saying, “catch fly-fly!”.
The experience of water is a strange thing to them right now, frozen in some places, flowing in others.
Whenever it is warm enough to take her mittens off she goes skipping down the street making them flap and singing out, “skippin’ mittens!”
At dinner Seraphine laid her tummy on the table and started biting the giant turkey in the middle!
Always a project going on! Right now it’s Wizard of Oz themed figures.
More quiet time to work on projects for my big boys once most of the little ones were in bed.
A late night for me working on our newsletter.
