A Day In The Life... photos and words

Hello! I'm sharing my photo and thoughts from the Day In The Life pictures I took yesterday. This project is from Ali Edwards who inspires me so much in telling our stories, the big and the small ones. I wanted this time of year to be documented as we have lots going on and the kids are so much older now, too many changes but all towards good things. Let's take a look now...
These are what I see each morning after I shower and I like it and dislike seeing them. I'd rather have the counter cleaned off but with three kids in there and a small space and one cabinet, it's easier to just leave it out. One day they won't have their stuff here and I will miss it so today I'm thankful for it. Why is their Shout in the bathroom, so Renee can spray her work clothes when she gets home at night. We learned this after months of having to back downstairs just to spray clothes so now we leave it upstairs.
I get Renee up first after my shower so she can shower. She wakes up so good and goes straight to the shower, no matter how tired she is. Look at that stack of books, can you tell she likes to read.
Next to wake up is Summer and Sam, they are a little slower then Renee but only a little.
Then I go in and check on Rich who slept bad due to a cold that kicked in last night.
I came down to see Lucky like this, usually she's on the couch. So cute!
loving this view out my kitchen window!!!!
Summer and Camryn love seeing each other as much as they can. Cousins are the best right!
Renee always gives Lucky lots of attention/love in the mornings. Hard to believe Renee will be going to college next fall. It will be so weird not having her go to school with the other two.
I find Lucky here when I get back from dropping off girls at school. So cute, she is always on the couch though, not sure what's up with her.
I did my morning writing and chores before heading out on errands and stopping at my grandma's like I do every Tuesday to help her with a shower and and do her laundry.
On the way I saw my cousin and uncle out for a walk, love seeing them!!! Thanks for stopping for a picture Sonja!!
Here's my grandma after her shower, I love drying her hair for her. My dad is in the chair behind me, always nice seeing him there each Tuesday too. He doesn't like his picture taken so I didn't bother him too. Glad I got this one of my sweet grandma though.
Back home it's time for lunch, my favorite soup and a good book
Rich comes home after lunch since he's still coughing and tired. We take Lucky outside and get some fresh air and enjoy the...
gorgeous sky and Liliacs that are blooming now, YAY!
3:20 and the kids are home!! Everything is rushed after that point. Renee needs to eat fast and get to work and dinner for the rest of us and off to soccer practice.
I want to remember that Sam LOOOOOVES tacos right now. He actually eats three at a time which is a lot for this boy. So we make them weekly and eat them for 2 nights. The best part for him is the hot sauce he adds too it, he can't get enough of it.
Summer and I go next door to see the new baby again, he's 3 weeks old today. He's so cute and alert too, moves his head around following us already. We could have stayed and held him for hours.
One last look at the gorgeous view out my kitchen window.
The rest of the night went by as normal, packed lunches, clean up and get ready for the next day. I worked on a Project Life, put Sam to bed and watched the movie Big till I had to pick up Renee from work. Goodnight Tuesday!
