Project 365 {week 24}

The second week of summer break was long.

We still haven’t figured out the right routine for us and there were a few break-downs.

Both by children and adults.

But we tried to find a happy spot in each day.

June 9: Reading the Sunday ads in the only place his brother can't bother him.

Even though we are still trying to figure stuff out, we managed to have fun.

We had a playdate with fun neighbors,

made lemon cookies and homemade ice cream,

we held a new baby and played with old friends,

we read books,

we played cards and ate part of a 5-pound Hershey bar,

and we laughed a lot.

So even though patience was lost and frustrations festered,

it was a good week.

  1. Why, oh why would any play food set have that many wieners??? That seriously cracked me up!! :)

  2. Wiener lunch made me laugh!
    And nekkid toddler with cleverly (? or !) placed ladle – love.
    Have a great week ahead!

    • Wiener lunch was totally ridiculous. We had even MORE wieners than that. I had to stop Eddie at 8 claiming I could not possible ingest that many wieners–pretend or not!
      And yes, the nudey buns running to give daddy a kiss while wielding a random ladle? So cute.

  3. At least your lunch looks a little healthier than the “lunches” my kids have brought me.

    I love donut shop donuts… they’re so delicious! Much better than the ones from the big stores.

  4. As long as it was good in the end, it’s all worth it :)
    The kids like to bring us plastic lunch all the time too, but I think we’ve lost most of our wieners.
