35 pictures from the last 24 days…
i’ll start off with a visit to anna’s classroom for “muffins with moms”. she is such a perfect little student. she loves school.
muffins with mom selfie.
just hazel, hamming it up.
football started. to celebrate, hazel and i took a sunday afternoon nap on the couch.
hazelbaby is a spidermonkey.
and a daredevil.
after the first miserable week of pickup line at school, we switched isaac to riding the busy. and we have super fun walking to the bus stop everyday and hanging out waiting for him.
the house on the corner at the stop is unoccupied currently, so we traipse around the yard and collect acorns.
you know. just a day in the life.
we buy a lot of stuff with amazon subscribe and every so often the stars align and we receive a bunch of giant items in an even gianter box. and the kids are so so happy. before they break out in fighting.
ok. so isaac came home from school one day telling me about his girlfriend, ella. she is a super sweet little girl who was in his class last year and we are actually friends with her family. he then begged for some pink paper and a pink marker so he could write her a letter to invite her for a playdate. i asked why he offered for me to fix her dress and he said, “i just HAVE to think of a reason to invite her over.” she’s also quite fond of him, so she wrote him back and now we are organizing the playdate. 🙂
this pic. anna’s bed head. the crust pile.
more terrific hair. and the introvert playing the iphone in the quiet safety of the bathroom.
anna art. this is me and a rainbow and a tree and a sun. and my “pet ghost”.
we celebrated our friend shira’s 4th birthday.
halloween sneak peek. monkey suit for the monkey.
derek found a local spot that has this delicious treat.
it’s holiday creamer time!
anna and isaac drew faces on their balloons. (and then referred to them as balloony). anyhoooo. when they deflated, anna’s was quite creepy.
isaac made a form for anna to fill out. 🙂
this kid is on a mission to destroy.
on a recent park trip, we found a zillion big fuzzy black caterpillars. anna is not afraid. we brought two home and put in a jar. where they died a slow miserable death and did not become beautiful butterflies.
my friend jen has a little boy named sam. and anna and sam are in the same preschool class. which gives us the perfect opportunity to have lunch dates and pretend that they are play dates for the kids. here’s anna and sam having their first of many chick fil a play dates.
anna’s school pic. so sweet and innocent. imposter.
i left anna all alone. coloring quietly and nicely. and came in to find this scene.
ahhhhhh. girls night out. at the porch. with some tostadas teddy and foothills hoppyum. mmmm.
went thrifting. found some fantastic things. orange cords for anna. tiny keens for hazel. some sweet saucony sneaks for anna in a few sizes.
um. and this super cool thermos.
isaac’s halloween sneak peek. red power ranger.
so. hazel got a mosquito bite under her eye. the next morning, she looked like this when she woke up.
and it got worse and worse. we closely monitored and a day later she was back to normal. but the whole thing made for some good pics.
busted out the autumn mug rugs.
and picked up my first honeycrisp apples of the season. mmmmm…
that’s all for now.
thanks for sticking it out.
