P52 || Week 10

Week 10 is brought to you by Ella, my 7 year old daughter. I’ve picked my camera up for fun more during this P52 than possibly ever before and it’s fun to see her get excited about it too! She asked me if she could take some pictures and here are a few she came up with. I love seeing life through her eyes!

P52 || Week 9

My baby turned 6. He came into this world on his own schedule and nothing has changed since! 😀 He’s all about Star Wars and Legos and this birthday was nothing but! He was beside himself with excitement to host some friends for a party. Life is so bittersweet. It’s such a joy to watch his grow up but I do wish I could keep him little forever.

Happy birthday, Levi. We love you! xo

P52 || Week 8

My sweet mother-in-law made a basket of science experiments complete with all the ingredients for Eli for Christmas. We finally had a chance to pull them out this week and have some fun. We made elephant toothpaste (lesson: the decomposition process of hydrogen peroxide) and water fireworks (lesson: differences in density).

P52 || Week 6

This one just can’t help himself if he thinks he might get a laugh. Wrapping up in a blanket by the heater is a favorite in our house and it’s even better when you look silly while doing it.P52 Week 6.1This one finally found a new series that he’s loving. P52 Week 6.2

P52 || Week 5

Rest was ushered in this week by way of sickness, causing all of us to slow down. As awful as it is to see these kiddos sick, I definitely soak up those extra snuggles.

P52 Week 5.1

Those eyelashes, that blankie and Austin the bat. Three things I never want to forget about this little one.

P52 || Week 2

Animal prints, Africa, snacks… we’re over a year into our homeschooling journey. Some days are beautiful, some days are tough, but the good far outweighs the bad. We learn from each other, grow with each other and are hopefully making some great memories along the way.
