Project 365, Week 10

I was a bit dissappointed with my pictures this week.  At some point during the week, I realized I was a bit uninspired, but I wasn't sure what to do about it.    These don't represent the fact that we got to see lots of family and had a decent excuse to use the china dishes...twice!  Or that we are getting more and more time outside without having to be completely bundled up.

There is so much hope with Spring!  Just when you think you can't do one more snowstorm or freezing cold day, you get a warmish, sunny day that makes everything good again.  Winter is not for forever and we'll be barefoot again before we know it!

Big sisters bring new meaning to the term 'wake-up call'!

Yay...March!!

Goofy girls before bed singing tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow I love ya....

Avery can be found like this much of the time.  It is wrong that I am already dreaming of our 'girls only' trips to warm places with nothing packed but a bathing suit and a pile of books?  Actually, sitting out on the front porch shoulder to shoulder with our feet propped up on a warm summer day sipping ice-cold water would work, too.
March 4
This morning the girls made their bed without me having to remind them.  Amanda doesn't 'get' many of Avery's ways, but she goes along anyway.

March 6
After story time at the library, we stepped outside on this 55 degree day and enjoyed the sun on our backs and the smell of spring in the air.  Grandma met us there to help with the pushing.

The wake-up call shot is so precious.

I used to dream of the same kinds of trips with my book loving kids too, unfortunately, only one developed the deep loving of reading I have. It's ok, I'm sure she and I will have fun together. lol

Great week! I love that they are everyday things. Singing silly things before bed must have been in the air this week! We were doing it here too.
Have a super week!

What sweet girls you have! The way they dote on their baby brother, the way they play (and sing) together, and the fact that they made their beds like responsible young ladies. There's no greater joy...

Kim said...

For being uninspired, you sure took some great shots this week!

rita said...

Love the made beds! Way to go, Mom!
And you are raising 'readers' too, wow!

Amy said...

I love the look on her face as she is sending the e-mail. Your everyday pictures are the ones you will want to remember. Big events seem to stick longer than the mundane ones, but it is the mundane ones that make up the bulk of our life!!

I love the singing kids!!
