yes i am getting this up über late this week. i decided very last minute to go to my parents for a few days, and left saturday after the kids' soccer games. they dont have internet at the house; they have it on their phones. c'mon parents, dont you want to pay $50 a month so i can update my blog from your house?!? guess not.
anyway, so i got back last night, and am just now getting around to getting last week's pictures up.
here ya go.
heres the screen door that will soon become a masterpiece.
like the new wall color, too?
thats a laser-cut wood frame from michaels that i spray painted teal, and hung with ribbon from a hook allen put on the door for me. i stenciled the pattern there in the middle with some white craft paint, and on the far left i wired some fabric flowers to the screen. the top hole was missing its screen when we bought the door at the habitat for humanity warehouse, but i think it gives the door some extra character.
i took the kids and a couple of colbys friends from church/co-op to a mummy exhibit at a museum in san antonio. no thats clearly not the mummy exhibit. i couldnt take pictures in there. this was the product of a dress-up trunk at a small circus exhibit they had in another part of the museum. im in love with this picture. colbys on the left, molly on the right. thats axel and david in the middle.
spaghetti squash returns! this is spaghetti squash carbonara, and its fabulous. heres the recipe if youre interested. her picture is much better than mine, partly because its turned the right direction. :-/ one day i'll figure out how to fix that.
colby was playing outside, and came in with this little guy. its a frog if you cant tell. he was promptly returned to the yard.
my friend jeanie waxed my legs. this was serious spa grade wax, man. and it hurt! but shes been doing it for, like, 20 years, and has pretty much no hair left on her legs, so if i can tough it out for 19 years 11 months and 3 weeks longer, i might be as lucky.
first soccer games! finally!! i didnt get a great shot of colby. thats molly mid-kick on the left. they both did great and had a lot of fun. i cant wait for their next games!
we're kind of having a lazy school week. we're way ahead of schedule since we started a full month before everyone else, and a couple of the private/charter schools in the area are taking this week off for fall break, so i feel justified. so far we havent done anything this week. we may do a little tomorrow. or not. :-)
