I know, I know. I’m a week late. I just wasn’t sure how we were going to tackle this photo challenge for the week 2 weeks ago. How do you represent “life” in a few photos? So I thought I’d take a series of photos over a period of a week and turn them into a video to give you an idea of what our week was like with us.
Now, I have to be honest, there were 2 difficulties I found with this idea as we wrapped the week up. First, a week during the summer is very different for us compared to a week during the school year. With all 3 of us at home together during the summer, we do A LOT together. And with this past week being our last full week together before we start the process of heading back to school, we spent a lot more time out and about than we usually do. So you are going to see more photos of us away from home than is usual.
Second, I really had the best of intentions of trying to show you EVERYTHING about life, including the day-to-day stuff, like making dinner, laundry, cleaning the bathroom, sleepiness in the morning, and 4-year-old tantrum fits. Really, I did. It’s just that when you are scrubbing the toilet, folding the clean towels, or trying to figure out how to diffuse a grouchy 4-year-old who should have napped, grabbing the camera isn’t your #1 priority! Just know that we do all that stuff just like everyone else!!!
I won’t give you descriptions for every photo that you see in the video, but here are some things we did this week…
- Family dinners
- Letterboxing (kind of like following clues to get to a special destination)
- Swim lessons
- Out for pizza
- Trip to the local market
- Trip to the local city library
- Playing in the water in the backyard
- More hiking
- Explored at a local nature center
- Superhero dress-up
- Lego play
- Trips to playgrounds
Hope you enjoyed a peek into our life!
Up for next week: Home-cooked Meal! Yum!
