life lately









list-making / unmade beds / holiday baking / endless amounts of pretend play / poetry and hot cocoa / new braids / gift wrapping / math work / bedtime reading / an ornament made by Blythe

Between finishing our homeschool year and my part-time job at the college and Mark’s weekend with Strep Throat and Kristen and Tim’s out-of-town work and our preparing for the Christmas holiday and my working on (an exciting) re-design for this blog, the last few weeks have been blurry. If I’ve seemed out-of-touch, you’ll know why. We all are looking forward to this holiday break, a chance to break our typical routine and breathe. The gifts are wrapped and today we’re folding a shocking amount of laundry to pack before we leave town tomorrow.  Here’s a few photos of our life lately.

  1. As busy as you’ve been, you stil make time to respond to others. You are very thoughtful and don’t seem out of touch at all. I hope you have a wonderful trip, wherever you’re going!

    1. Thank you again for this, Amberly. I have felt like a whirlwind and am ready for a different change of pace. Best to you this holiday season! x
