WITL...DAY 5 Hanging in there

Happy Friday!! The week started slow but the last two days went by pretty fast for me. I have to admit that today was draining for me, not sleeping well and haveing to wake up even earlier then usual this week due to Rich needing to be at work early. It's all catching up to me and I see a nap in my plans today. Each morning I get my post ready and seeing all these photos on the computer makes me happy each time. Little bits of our day caught on camera and I'm thankful each day for this and all memories we will have saved. The last few days have been kinda theme related purley by accident but today's is just random and things that I normally wouldn't have thought to do if not for this project. If anything I did do more writing then normal and was almost going to just post a list of my day and no photos, but didn't seem as much fun without photos.

# of photos taken 70
# of photos deleted 10
# of laundry 2
# of dishwasher none
#of times letting Lucky outside 16  that is a high number he was actually annoying at one point and kept going outside.

I never get to see her wait for the bus, usually in my shower still. So glad to have this one, she was actually shaking because it's so cold out today. I miss seeing her get on the bus so this was a treat.
He is excited about fun day at school.
Her hair is soooo pretty after a shower. Look at those soft curls yet she flat irons it most days or puts it up in a ponytail. I can't wait till she appreciates the naturl beauty that is already there. Wish I had it.
thankful she brings the garbage can back up on Friday's. Today she is going on a sleepover right from school. So tonight it will be only 2 kids for me to hang out with.
Home with groceries, a dreaded chore some days. Thankful for the food but not the shopping part.
Salad and soup for lunch, was yummy!!
Renee took this for me, we are headed for some errands and dinner
Rich waters the strawberries now and Lucky sits here afraid to go back there he will have to get used to this routine at night though. Finally Rich puts down the watering can and calls him to play.
Good night Friday, the sunset came late tonight

Thank you to everyone stopping by and leaving me comments all week. I appreciate them all and enjoy reading what you thought about my day/photos/words. Only 2 more days to go, yippee !!

    1. Hi Cathy,
      So glad you came by, this really is a treasured project. Thanks for nice words and looking thru my days, it looks so cool when all put together. I am a number girl that's why I keep track of number things all the time, lol
      It would be great if you did this, you can do it anytime!!

  3. Hi Dawn! You've done such a great job capturing your family during the week! I hope you'll post some photos of those strawberries when they're ready! How wonderful to be growing your own.

    Have a great weekend! Thanks for sharing your week. ~Jennifer

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      Thanks so much for stopping by, isn't it fun to see each other's weeks going by. The strawberries won't be ready till next summer and I always do a page about my hubby's garden/crop it's his pride and joy.
      Enjoy your weekend.

  4. Hi Dawn!
    You have been doing such an amazing job capturing your family this week - you should be very proud of yourself! I agree, its a pretty awesome feeling seeing all of the photos you uploaded every day..crazy to think all of this happens in an ordinary day and we don't put much thought in to it!!
    Very impressive that you have been doing more journalling than less these last few days..I haven't really done any! So good for you!!
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Dawn,
      Thanks for stopping by and for the support and nice words. You should be proud too of your week of memories. This really does slow me down and makes me enjoy the day. Only one more day left!!

  5. I like the thoughts these photos let you capture about your daughter. It is nice to see someone with such a thankful heart. Thanks for visiting my blog too.

  6. Hi Dawn Love your series of sunset pics. I also like your strawberry field. Do you do WITL only once a year? It is really wonderful to capture all these everyday memories.
