Like Sand Through the Hourglass…

…so are the days of our lives!

Week in the Life {January} Day 2

Right now, as I type this, I am looking out the back window to see The Bigs jumping and playing on the trampoline.  Davey is playing with trains, munching a piece of cheese and drinking from a sippy cup that Auntie Angie sent him him because she knows that sippy cups are the bane of my existance.  The sippy has a top that closes and every so often he closes it and says, “Mama. Milk. Miiiiiiiiiilk!”

Today we took a break around lunch and headed to the bank and the gas station.  Afterwards it was back home to wrap up lessons.   The days are littered with sayings like ‘pay attention’, ‘finish your work’, ‘you know that fact’, but in the end it all works out and the kids head out the door to play some game they made up.    That right there makes home schooling worth it.  That right there is what reinforces the decision we made many moons ago.

The kitchen is clean, only to be dirtied up again; the whole cycle will start over.  The days really are like sand.  They easily slip through our hands.

    I am new to your site – I really love your pictures. I’m completely jealous of the way you can take a picture of something mundane and ordinary and make it beautiful. You have a wonderful talent and I’m glad you are sharing it for all to see. On a side note, MAN you have some clean floors haha…..
