August 27 – Weekly Photos + Tracking

Slow week at home due to illness. Apparently traveling helps you catch colds before you even realize that cold season has begun, and so it has for us. Booo. Somebody felt decent enough to fish by Wednesday, after spending his congested time crafting a tiny fishing pole from the full-scale one that broke in Kansas. Caught nothing, but felt good to get out. Then we tentatively hit a trail together, and that felt good too. Colds officially on the mend, and we had time at home to do some reading + projects.

Five different species of butterflies were spied (capture was attempted but unsuccessful) on our hikes, and two kinds of tadpoles were fished from Brush Creek there. Rosetta also caught a baby garter snake, which her cousins had never held before.

This week, we moved my parents into the Westminster home they’ll share with my youngest sister. The kids moved boxes, rearranged furniture + pulled down wallpaper. We’re excited to be able to see grands without skipping town for a week each trip, and it should free up some actual vacation space.

All I do here is document the edges of our life, and I am always surprised by how many categories of learning the items fit into. We learn so much just by hanging out with people, enjoying our everyday with them.

July 17 -Two Weeks’ Worth of Photos

Our whole week at home, following vacation, we struggled to summon the required energy to make lunches + get out the door. When we did, we liked it. Mostly, though, we didn’t, completing many forgotten home projects + enjoying rearranging + cleaning our daily spaces around here.

Last week felt like the longest one in a while. George got promoted, so we started out with a small celebration. More fun than stressful, plus the house was cleaned early!

As spring continues, our focus seems to be shifting into physicality, any activity that requires body movement in some way. Definitely the trampoline is a daily outlet all year, but now it’s been a joy to get outside on bicycles or on foot, and no one seems to mind a lap around the ‘hood. Particularly in the rain!

First camping trip of the season! Our Wildling crew headed to Great Sand Dunes National Park for a group trip, and we had fun despite crazy winds + below-freezing temps.
