NUMBER OF PHOTOS FOR SATURDAY | 71
Tonight as I looked back through my photos for the day I was thinking about how even within days that aren't "normal" there are opportunities to tell stories about "normal" things happening in our lives right now - little things that were captured through the lens that I might not even have seen at first glance.
It's a good reminder that there are often many stories to be told within a single photo.
STORY ONE | A huge portion of our day included participating in a neighborhood garage sale. I feel exhausted even though we didn't have a ton of stuff.
STORY TWO | One of my favorite parts of the day was connecting a bit more with our neighbors in this joint endeavor.
STORY ONE | If you asked Simon what his favorite thing from today was he'd tell you playing "Super Simon." Then he'd tell you about how he was rescuing people from all kinds of disasters (like rouge locomotives). He might also tell you how he rescued a favorite too-small shirt and PJ set from the rack of clothing for sale.
STORY ONE | Anna spent the first part of the sale checking out her clothes that are too small and asking to put them on. I think she had on at least six different shirts/outfits over the course of the day.
STORY TWO | Purple and pink. She loves them big time. And her Dora shoes.
STORY ONE | If you asked Anna what her favorite part of today was she'd say something about playing with "the boys." Our neighbors grand-kids were over for the sale today and the two boys and Anna had a great time going back and forth between our houses. They played cars and built with blocks and chatted and played puzzles and rode trikes and the boys missed her while she was taking her nap.
STORY TWO | The ease that Anna has in hanging out with other little kids is sometimes a shock to me. It's really so fun to see her very naturally engage and flow so easily into a playing rhythm.
STORY ONE | While cleaning out a toy closet for the sale I came across this paper airplane kit that Simon received for Christmas last year. It's got cool colorful papers and all kinds of different ways to fold airplanes.
STORY TWO | Something about where the kids are in their relationship to Chris at this point in time. Watching, listening, teaching, learning, having fun.
STORY ONE | Anna needs to have her bangs cut (or needs to learn to like having a clip in her hair).
STORY TWO | The development of her personality is cracking us up so much lately. The things she says, her cadence, her little toothy grins, the way she's connected to Simon, etc.
STORY ONE | Simon loves to pull down some of our stemware for his water from time to time.
STORY TWO | He's just getting so big. He's also getting sillier. I think he's starting to pick up some things that are funny that he's missed in the past.
I still need to scan in my Daily Sheets for today. I'll do that in the morning.
I hope you have an awesome last day of documentation - you're almost there! Keep it up -
