My Week(357) in iPhone Photos

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

I can barely remember this week. I can barely remember yesterday. I can barely remember my own name.

Sunday:

Everyone loves our new washer

Matching dinners

I bought a mop.

Monday:

Rocks we found at the park!

Back to school night hot dogs

He looks so smug

Tuesday:

Checking out the white rhinos

Kangaroos know how to relax

Never holds still

Wednesday:

BACK TO SCHOOL THANK GOD

Checking out his new playground

Cupcake destroyer

Thursday:

I cleaned downstairs. I cleaned upstairs. I came downstairs to this.

Not excited about school.

Everyone home again and back to chaos

Friday:

Slowly moving marbles

Cream cheese face

Still learning how to selfie

Saturday:

Rock hunting

Caroline was convinced she could climb this tree

The Niantic turtle

Today, my little baby Finnegan learned how to climb up onto the couch. He still does not know how to climb OFF the couch safely, so my stress level is pretty high. Keeping him from cracking his head open is not my favorite way to spend our afternoons, but then again the ER waiting room would definitely be worse.

I got rid of the old sink from before our bathroom reno today. It feels like a huge accomplishment because it’s been just taking up space in the nursery for months now. Hopefully I can keep taking tiny productive steps until the house is truly clean and organized.

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

First full week of school, last weekend of the summer. The transition is going as well as I can expect, which is to say the kids are taking turns being COMPLETLY exhausted and having breakdowns. And Linc thinks he’s suddenly grown.

Sunday:

sunday1

PUMPKIN SPICE ATTACK

sunday2

Babywearing runs in the family

sunday3

Big kid doing big kid stuff

Monday:

monday1

Driving the playscape

monday2

Don’t look so judgy baby, it’s just a liquor store run.

monday3

Climber

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Apparently he’s allergic to…something? I think it’s the baby wipes.

tuesday2

School is EXHAUSTING

tuesday3

He’s obsessed

Wednesday:

wednesday1

I tried wearing lipstick. Linc thinks it’s a mistake. I think I agree.

wednesday2

OMG GUISE THIS BRIDGE THING BOUNCES

wednesday3

I joked that he was going to sleep in her bed and she was not amused

Thursday:

thursday1

Jogging! For like, 4 seconds. But I want credit.

thursday2

Connecticut ends here

thursday3

I’M TRAPPED IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION

Friday:

friday1

His new favorite spot

friday2

Niantic is adorable

friday3

The kids were super excited about the babywearing in this book.

Saturday:

saturday1

Apparently no one else wanted to spend a gorgeous Saturday at the lake. Idiots.

saturday2

I brought all the car wraps in to wash them. Such a pretty pile.

saturday3

So I guess he’s just big now.

We have one last #lakelife day tomorrow as long as Evan doesn’t sleep the entire day. Or I do. 8 hours of sleep would be a dream come true and because Linc didn’t get ANY nap today I have my fingers crossed he’ll let me sleep in. Our fall activity schedule starts this week and then goes into full crazy mode next week so I need as much rest as I can get. I’m already reminding myself that I did this to myself and it won’t last forever. I suspect in the spring we’ll sign up for exactly zero things to recover.

My Week(148) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Last week of summer, first week of school! Except I just realized today Labor Day means no school for anyone tomorrow, so we can fit in one more beach/fun day before we start a regular schedule.

Sunday:

Sunday

Apparently this is the only photo I took on Sunday. I can’t even remember Sunday. Did Sunday even happen?

Monday:

monday1

Nothing like a nuclear power plant to add to my scenic beach photos

monday2

I love this beach

monday3

The most adorable ice cream and candy store in the world

Tuesday:

tuesday1

She changed her mind about the birds. NO BIRDS, MOMMY.

tuesday2

Sea lion show. My kids can name all the sea lions.

tuesday3

Grilled cheese of the day: Basil pesto, artichokes, tomatoes, mozzarella on Italian bread.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

In this episode, Spiderman joins S.H.I.E.L.D. I had to Google to find out if that was accurate (it is).

wednesday2

Evan’s favorite part of his new school: cool sinks.

wednesday3

Orientation is EXHAUSTING.

Thursday:

thursday1

Ready to go!

thursday2

The cat loves Caroline

thursday3

This is her “WE’RE GETTING CHEESEBURGERS!” face

Friday:

friday1

Playing “Tick-tock croc eats Captain Hook!” while we wait for the bus

friday2

She is loving our outside play time while we wait for the bus. It makes me feel bad we never use our (very tiny) front yard.

friday3

What do you wear when it’s 80 degrees?

Saturday:

saturday1

Craft store…

saturday2

…pretzel burger…

saturday3

…and Sherlock. PERFECT SATURDAY.

I’m so excited Evan likes school, the bus situation seems to be working out, and that when Caroline starts school on Tuesday I will be able to get back to a regular schedule for me too. I loved going to the gym last year, but totally failed during the summer. I need to get exercise back on my list of priorities, if only because I have to be in better shape to work as a photographer. Taking newborn photos is like doing 200 squats. I’m going to have buns of steel if people keep hiring me.

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

Our week was busy, except for when it wasn’t because of the pouring rain and flash floods. But mostly busy.

Sunday:

sunday1

I mean, I only have three doll houses, why not buy another one? (I did not)

sunday2

Caroline is destined for music videos with lots of mind machines

sunday3

I appreciate how the trees on the point hide most of the nuclear power plant. More scenic.

Monday:

monday1

I’ve never actually seen the state capitol before

monday2

Confucius say: Give a man $120 and he will give you an LLC.

monday3

Sometimes I take pictures of stuff I want to remember to keep on my phone, but then I forgot to leave them on my phone.

Tuesday:

tuesday1

The local tax office is located in part of an old TB hospital.

tuesday2

HUGS

tuesday3

We love the sunflowers

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Really excited for gymnastics

wednesday2

Playdates make me hungry, and this was super delicious

wednesday3

I told Evan he is my photography assistant, and he said that means he has to push the stroller.

Thursday:

thursday1

Grocery store in the pouring rain

thursday2

Destroying the house and having pillow fights in the pouring rain

thursday3

Watching Thor in the pouring rain

Friday:

friday1

Princess Sadface returns

friday2

Five kids under a table.

friday3

Despite that face, the rainbow ice was delicious.

Saturday:

saturday1

Home run!!

saturday2

I never should have showed her how the front-facing camera works.

saturday3

Restarted C25K. This time I am determined to finish.

The urgency to do as many things and have as much fun as possible before summer is over has hit. I was actually grateful for a rainy miserable day to stay home and relax (even though we ended up having friends over and totally wearing out my kids). July is almost over and August is going to FLY by and then Evan starts 5 days a week morning pre-k, which I am both totally ready and not at all ready for. They grow up so fast, etc etc, but I’m looking forward to a new stage where I have a lot more time to focus on things I love (especially photography) instead of just being Mommy.

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

P.S. I changed some of the settings on my computer to try and get more accurate color and brightness calibration but until I get a real colorimeter my photos might look too bright/weird.  I promise I’m fixing it!
