ok, on to the main event....
MONDAY, Jan 12th
for project 365 i'm trying not to take a bunch of pictures of my family (specifically my adorable kids, because lets face it, i could totally go that route and be perfectly happy). i want to broaden my horizons, of you will, and think outside the box a little bit. however, over the weekend my granparents on my dads side came into town (we only see them a few times a year) and they came over monday night along with my other grandparents and my parents as well. i can't remember the last time we were all together. allen wanted a picture of all the ladies, so this is my picture from monday. my dads mom is on the left and my moms mom is immediately to my right, with my mom next to her. molly is of course in my lap. 4 generations!
TUESDAY, Jan 13th
colby and i spent quite a bit of time working through some of his "schoolbooks" on tuesday. he's got all the short vowel sounds down and loves all the worksheets. handwriting...not so much yet.
WEDNESDAY, Jan 14th
colby decided he wanted to plant an apple tree so we can have our very own apples. after much explanation that 'just because you plant a seed doesnt mean it will grow, and even if a tree grows that doesnt mean it will grow apples', i finally let him have his fun. he's commented every day about our tree not growing yet.
THURSDAY, Jan 15th
bible study started thursday morning. we're doing the new beth moore study on esther. this one is supposed to be more young mom and working woman friendly. so theres only 3 pages of homework instead of 5 or 6. :)
FRIDAY, Jan 16th
dinner friday night was grilled chicken salad. i put the kids' salad on their plate in sections and let them eat it however they see fit. this is what colby decided to do with his.
SATURDAY, Jan 17th
i had an audition at the theatre saturday afternoon for Grease. the last show i did was CATS over a year ago, so i'm hoping this turns out well. i'm missing it. i'll keep ya'll posted.
SUNDAY, Jan 18th
yes, these are molly's feet. i don't know why i took this picture. i just thought it was cute. she was eating her cereal before church this morning. this is how she always sits when she eats.
