POD: Lacing up back to school shoes


Today we headed out to get the kids new shoes for the coming school year. After some effort we managed to get a pair for each of them. Tonight though I share a little collage I put together of Jacob Tieing the laces of his new shows. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll share a picture of Violet’s new shoes.

POD: Last day of School


Today the kids headed off to their last day of school. They kids were both excited and sad to say good-by to another school year. Of course it was our last year with having a kindergartener, int the fall Violet will be in grade 1. Jacob will be in grade 4 and will probably have a teacher who will give him home work. Of course before any of that we have a long summer of fun and adventures.

POD: A Secret from Daddy


Today a letter came home from Violet’s class for Mom’s eyes only. So of course I went to open it. When I did I found a message telling me I should have listened to the note.

POD: Violet’s Easter Art


Today Violet brought home her Easter Art. I am quite impressed with the job she did with her egg and her little chick.

POD: Violet does her Homework


Today we have a picture of Violet working on her Snuggle up and read homework. After reading her story she got to work on drawing her picture. One of her books tonight was about butter, and she loves toasted rye bread with butter. So she got a slice of rye bread as a model and drew her own complete with butter.

POD: School House Art


Today was Parent Teacher interviews at the kid’s school and while I do find talking tot he teachers enlightening, I have another reason for attending. I like to capture pictures of the kids work off the class room walls. This year that seems to be only Violet’s work in her kindergarten class. Still I managed to put together a collage from her different winter themed works of art. .

POD: Snuggle Up and Read


Today in Violet’s bag I found something I have looked forward to since she started school. Today her first Snuggle Up and Read books came home. I always loved it when Jacob brought home his Snuggle Up and Read Books (POD: Snuggle-Up-and-Read, POD: Snuggle-Up-and-Read 2, and POD: Snuggle up and Read Update). I can’t wait to snuggle up with Violet and read her books.

POD: Wind Power


Today we have a picture of the Wind Turbine at exhibition place.  It’s cool bit I’ve always wonder if there is any more being planned.

POD: Violet at the Pumpkin Patch


Today Violet’s class headed out for a field trip to the Pumpkin patch. She loved it, but what made the day for our little Violet was that her Mommy was one of the parents who went along. I like that she took along our good camera and took pictures. I chose one this one of smiling Violet to use as today’s picture of the day.

POD: First Day of School

Today a new school year started, the kids headed out the door both excited and nervous.  Jacob wasn’t sure if his best friend would be in his class again this year. And Violet is facing school with a broken collar-bone and shoulder.  By the time the bell rang they were both off with their friends excited to be starting a new year. Jacob is once again in a split class, this year it’s a 3/4 split with lots of his friends including his best friend Daniel. Violet was thrilled to see all her friends from last year, but also a little boy from her last summer camp.  Since I already know that this picture of the two of them before school will be today’s picture of the day, why wait till tonight to post.
