April Is Almost Over and What is Happening

April 27th, 2015 by KellyJoe

Monday again. Another day, another cup(s) of coffee.

Adventure 2: Do a Ball Pit

I tried to get Al to hold the paper up but he was way too excited about all the balls. This is the best I could get in the low lighting and constant movement.

Adventure 3: Go to the library

I wish Al’s face was in focus in this but I still love this picture. They had a lot of fun at the library and really it’s a trip we need to make WAY more often. I just have a real struggle with getting books back on time, it’s a really bad habit of mine.

Adventure 4: Bake cookies

Once again, the low lighting and constant movement is a challenge. I like all the colors of the m&m’s though.

Adventure4

Those are the only adventures we’ve done this last week (or has it been a couple weeks now, I don’t even remember). We did go on a hike though and do some geocaching. Al got a pretty sweet dragonfly ring from one of the caches and I got two kids who napped hard, it’s a win!

These are just miscellaneous pics from walking to the library and making cookies. They’re cute so I threw them in.

Other than that, I’m unsure what to talk about. We still haven’t been doing any real sensory play things, and I desperately need to make a trip to the dollar store. Right now I feel like I’m still scrabbling to get everything done always and I’ve started a lot of projects around the house. It’s kind of fallen into a thing where I need to decide on a daily basis what is the most important thing for me to do but that’s a struggle for me cause I want to do it all. And I’m whiny tired all the time. But I digress.

This week, this week will be my week. More pictures to come.

16.SomethingGreen

Hello, it’s been a while. I had some computer issues happening so I haven’t been able to get into some of my pictures. That seems resolved now. I haven’t been doing a photo challenge for April though because of it, so these ones are all from March.

16. Something Green.

I just took pictures of a bunch of blossoms. They were super ridiculous pretty for a while there.

17. St. Pattys Related.

Which the only way that these flowers are related is that I happened to be walking past them while going to get a treat for the holiday. Oops.

18 & 19. Portrait shot

There actually wasn’t an 18 in the challenge so I just decided on this.

This kid. Excuse me while I cry.

And these are just random ones I took out walking one day. I uploaded everything all screwy so these got stuck in the middle and I’m too lazy to fix it.

Mosaic

I became obsessed with this statue for a while. It’s weirdly pretty.

So in lieu of doing a photo challenge for a while I’m doing Spring/summer adventures with the kids. The first one was planting seeds together. Of course, the day after it snowed so who knows if they’ll sprout.

Adventure1

And I’ve resolved to hike more. This is a kind of cool shot I took while out doing that.

Plus a shot of both kids from Easter day. They’re not good at both making a nice face.

Well, there’s more that will happen and soon and more pictures to come as always. And maybe I’ll stay caught up better. Who knows. Stranger things have happened.
