P52 #42 – All Hallows’ Eve Eve

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015 by Jen

This year Halloween was on a Saturday and so we had early trick or treating on Friday at the East Arlington Businesses. This was their first set of costumes that we took out and then went out to my dad’s company party. They didn’t want to┬ápossibly ruin the fancy costumes eating dinner in them. Then they also get to show off two outfits! Josie was a sailor, Celia was snow white and Ewan was a frog because his tiger costume was suddenly too scary. This year Ewan got the hang of trick or treating really quickly and no longer tried to give away his candy like he did last year.

P52 #41 – Someone’s excited about her new math book

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015 by Jen

Celia just finished up her K level math book, so she’s onto a first grade book and did the first two exercises already today. She is just chewing up the math lately. Josie is also sharing her excitement for her math book. Ewan is excited to be wearing Celia’s slippers. He’s also decided that he’s very excited for me to be taking his photo now anytime the camera comes out. It makes it very difficult to sneak around as he suddenly yells “take my picture! take my picture! get over here mommy take my picture!”

P52 #40 – Through the leaves

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 by Jen

This was taken today at Waldo park, a great afternoon for play after the morning rain. The kids started making faces at me once they noticed I was taking pictures of them, but I enjoyed trying to use some of our beautiful foliage for some framing since it won’t be around much longer!

P52 #39 – Spy games

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015 by Jen

Today we went to have lunch with my mom and dad at my dad’s office. They have some nice picnic tables outside and the kids can be loud and active without being a problem in a work environment. Plus homeschooling lets us hang out with people during the day! They were playing a ‘spy’ game where they hid and signaled when someone found them. I set up my shot, and then announced dessert was served and so they showed up pretty quickly from hiding!

The logs are from last years holiday party theme. They literally made a cake that was almost half the size of this real log pile for the party for hundreds of people. It was good cake, but rather odd looking as I wouldn’t say logs are appetizing.

P52 #38 – Synchronized swinging

P52 #37 – Three peas in a pod

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015 by Jen

Tonight at dinner they decided to put their heads together and do some weird chanting. I ran for the camera. This week I did have a backup photo though, but I liked this one better. Black bean soup on the face and all.

P52 #36 – The new bathroom light

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015 by Jen

Had an epic fail remembering the camera while bringing Josie to field hockey and them farm school, so no outdoor pictures on one of the most gorgeous days of the year sadly. Instead the kids are enjoying the new bathroom light and fan in our downstairs bathroom which lights it up much brighter and actually removed the humid air (our last fan just sort of made noise it seemed). Our bathroom is always a busy place.

P52 #35 – Post dinner sing-a-long

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015 by Jen

Not exactly award winning photography this week, but I forgot my camera when we went to the farm. This is tonight after dinner with Josie and Celia singing ‘boom clap‘ and Ewan literally running circles around them trying to avoid having his picture taken.

I especially like Ezzy’s expression in the background, which is why I didn’t straighten the picture to make it level as it would have cut her out.

P52 #34 – First day of school

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015 by Jen

Last week began our first day of school. The girls were eager to get started even though local schools didn’t start until today officially. Seems right given that we ended earlier too. The girls were helpful for their individual shots, but the group was a disaster as these were the only two shots I got, always one was refusing to cooperate.

Everyone’s at home this year, and so far we’re off to a good start studying about compost, farms, worms and the general math and reading.

P52 #33 – Little people, big trees

Last week we went to camp, which I’ll write lots more about too, but here’s the kids on the way out of camp as we made the sad march to our car as camp ended. All the walks were tough to keep the kids on track as there was always so much to see, such as sticks, rocks, trees and dirt ­čÖé Josie and Celia are carrying their fairy houses and some backpacks because we just had so much stuff to carry each and every way it was all hands on deck! We were lucky when we didn’t have to carry Ewan too. They all had a great time coming home with lots of dirt under their nails.
