POD: New years day craft

It was a lazy day, spent mostly in PJs making slime. So what better way to remember it then this picture of violet, as she got all the ingredients for slime creation.

POD: Ringing in the New Year with a Pie in the face

A new year has begun and for my first picture of 2018, I have one from last night. Violet and Jacob playing Pie in the Face showdown. Violet one the round and Jacob rung in the new year with a face of whipped cream.




POD: Hanging with Santa

To the kids saw the big man himself. Mr Claus. It was a magical visit, and every year I wonder when the magic will end.

POD: The Return of Jingles

Today we I continue with the Christmas theme. Today Jingles returns, well technically tomorrow. Still, it seems like the right thing to share for today’s picture of the day. Violet’s been asking about our Elf on the Shelf since she woke up on December first. She even asked her friends Elf if they could ask Jingles to return to us.

POD: November Reading Scrapbook

Today we wrap up November, and with it, Jacob has to hand in his Reading Scrapbook. Of course, he wasn’t finished his scrapbook till after 10 o’clock last night. I think managing his time will be something we’ll work on for next month project. Still I think he did a very good job.

POD: Water Fight

Today was the end of the Lacrosse House league season, so it was Water-fight night.

POD: Tiger Lillies

Today I share our blooming Tiger Lillies. We have a couple of them in our garden, but last year we didn’t get to enjoy their flowers, as little hands picked all the buds. This year we’ve been treated to a lovely bunch of flowers.

POD: Climbing Badges

Over the weekend Jacob had his last climbing class of the year.  I’m proud of how well he’s progressed over the year, and excited to see how he does when he goes back in the fall.

POD: Lacrosse Sunday

Not even the sudden thunderstorm washing out her second game could put a damper on Miss V today. Her team won 5-2 and the teams Lacrosse bags came in. She was one happy girl.

POD: Enjoying the View

Tonight the kids and I decided to walk home from Jacob’s guitar lesson. It was a beautiful day, and though a little cloudy it looked like the rain would stay away. It took us just over 30 minutes to complete it, but what amused me most was how excited Violet was as we walked over the bridge. See keep looking over the side, say ‘I’ve never walked on here before.’ Or ‘I haven’t seen the view from here before.’. It was so very cute
