Week 12Rough start to our week. Samuel had a low-grade fever over the weekend and doctor’s visit on Monday confirmed that he has yet another ear infection — that’s two ear infections in a two month period! Poor guy.
Samuel continues to wear his rain boots — even when it is not raining. Sometimes he makes me wear them too – so we can be “same same.” I love all the stuff he’s saying right now. Just love it.
Spring Break. Oh, yes. We have been enjoying the nice weather and time with kids in our neighborhood.
We spent part of the weekend at my mom’s house. She told us to take Samuel to visit the Easter Bunny … and of course, I jumped at the opportunity! We talked about the Easter Bunny on the way over and Samuel seemed very excited. Once there, he was fine while we were in line — even planning the photo. He said, “Dada and Samuel sit with bunny. Mama take picture.”
But when it was our turn, he freaked out as I was setting up the shot — hence the picture of the Easter Bunny without Samuel. Ha!
I made the Bunny text card using Wordle (online site). I entered everything Samuel said about the Easter Bunny photo op/debacle and picked an arrangement of words I liked. Saved it as a pdf and resized it in Photoshop. I’m really diggin’ the bits of washi tape (Studio Calico Project Life March Kit) on the white card.
Love this photo of my mom, Samuel and me sipping pho.
We took Samuel to visit the Children’s Museum of Stockton while we visited my mom. He loved the toddler area and the life size vehicles. Such a fun place for kids.
Loved how Samuel visited the irises in our yard this week. He said hello to them everyday after school.
Love that he asks to look at the scrapbooks.
Washi tape is rad.
Continue to love that PL is a great place to store everyday memorabilia — like cards, happy notes, etc.
Week 13My friend and I took our kiddos to Daffodil Hills. Samuel loved visiting with the horses and peacocks.
We spent a few days in Monte Rio, CA.
And I totally stole Ali Edwards’ idea for the peek through page. Love her and her work.
Lots of inserts this week.
We spent a few hours at Goat Rock Beach (just north of Bodega Bay) and Armstrong Redwoods.
Cowboy Samuel rode his horse all week.
I was thrilled that I got in some reading time.
Documented a day in my life on paper — haven’t done anything with the photos yet.
When we returned from our short trip, Samuel asked to look at his scrapbooks. And so we did.
He is also really into pretending that his pull-toy alligator is his pet dog. He calls it Huey and takes it for walks, washes it, and even trains it to sit. Samuel cracks me up everyday.
Our week ended with an Easter Egg hunt at the local church and a sick boy.
Week 14A doctor’s visit on Monday revealed that Samuel has yet another ear infection — that’s two ear infections in two weeks! Samuel is still in good spirits and asked for a bike ride and a visit to the park.
This week, I’m becoming friends with my running gear (again).
Samuel and I continue to have our Wednesday outings. This week, we visited the post office (and what an adventure that was!), checked out the local thrift store, and had ice cream at one of our favorite ice cream shops.
During the week, my sister came down from Portland for work. We visited with her and got some new knits.
The blanket (above) was made by my mother. It’s made from all the leftover yarn from my sister’s projects.
We ended the week with a visit to a new park. Samuel got some play time with my siblings.
And I finally bought some plants for my planter boxes.
