Around Here is a new addition to my Project Life album this year. It’s a place where I can add additional photos to tell our story.
Around here, we celebrated my mom’s 74th birthday. She is beautiful, strong and independent. I love you, mom.
Around here, I helped organized the 7th Annual Math and Science Discovery Night. I was thrilled to be able to organize the science portion of the event. Honestly, I’m good at it and it feels good to be back doing something Jim and I started (and love).
Around here, Samuel and I went to Paradise Beach and enjoyed getting sand between our toes, dipping our toes in the freezing water, trying our best to skip rocks and building a lovely little sand castle equipped with a stick-leaf flag. Wednesday afternoons are ours – now and for always.
Around here, we were thrilled with the change in daylight savings. We love the extra hour of light.
Around here, there are lemons and tangerines on our trees. We are drinking lemonade and fresh tangerine juice daily.
Around here, I am bringing back the Vietnamese dishes (specifically, banh xeo and spring rolls) into our weekly meal rotation.
Around here, spring has sprung and Samuel’s allergies are worse than ever. We are also noticing a lot of dry spots and bumps on his skin. We can’t figure out what his skin is allergic too.
Around here, Samuel continues to take riding lessons and music classes. He decided that soccer isn’t his sport so quit it in the middle of the season. We are not thrilled that he quit soccer so we continue to have conversations about finishing what we start. It has not worked yet.
Around here, Samuel is fascinated by the swing. It’s about time. Ha!
Around here, I’m starting an exercise routine (again). My ankle injury has healed and I am ready to shed some pounds.
Around here, Samuel has been eating a peanut butter & jelly sandwich for breakfast every morning.
Around here, I just booked our Disneyland vacation. We are also talking about a couple other summer trips.
Around here, Spring Break is just 9 days away! And summer vacation is 39 days from today. Yippee!
Around here, I am thinking about my garden but I haven’t put my thoughts into action yet.
Around here, we have many unfinished projects. We’re hoping to knock a couple of those projects out during Spring Break.
Around here, I am making smarter financial decisions.
Around here, I am reading Catching Fire (second in the Hunger Game series).
Around here, it feels like winter. I’m really enjoying the much needed rain.
Around here, I am 3 for 3 for monthly family photos. I’m hoping to get one where we are all looking at the camera.
Around here, we are happy. We are having fun. We are thriving. That’s how it should be.
