Judgmentally, I never thought that I would ever be one of those people who always has to have their phones in front of them, but now that my not-exactly-dumb-phone has been replaced by its much higher-IQ-ed cousin, I am humbly here to admit to you that I do seem to be having some attachment issues.
Please consider this my formal apology for those of you who know what I am talking about…I promise, no more judging.
So, the idea behind InstaFriday is to capture those 'random, everyday moments that make up your week' using nothing but your phone's camera.
I love this concept and since I have to pretend that I am a math and art teacher at my homeschool co-op on Fridays (after a long and pleasant winter-like break during Spring) this is about all that I have in me:
One of the first pictures shot with my new phone (other than the tantalizing cup of ice you see above) is of my youngest son. He was playing with his daddy's headphones and I did not tell him not to because he is just so stinking cute! (He is also the child out of all of my children that I will most likely be guilty of enabling because he looooves me.) All of my training and time working with kids might as well have just have flown out the window.
Note that the headphones are not even plugged in, yet still, he grooves.
The days were pretty cold this week (snow, anyone?) and we also found that a couple of our kiddos were coming down with sore throats and general yuckiness, so we stayed pretty low-key.
I did eventually break out the play-dough recipe for my littles, and you would have thought that I was the coolest mom ever. What it proves to me is that I have been a little bit of a slacker in the fun department.
Si was the hardest hit by whatever was going around, but he did manage to rally long enough to make me some play-dough treats.
They were, of course, delicious.
His sister just wanted to take a nap. I took a picture of the grumpy face and then I obliged.
I find that when the bottom lip pops out on this one, I can be certain it is nap-time.
See! There it is.
Good night, Miss Ailish.
The highlight of our week (other than that cup of ice above, and several just like it--or maybe that was just me) was in the season opening of Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch.
Both of my oldest girls were able to ride and the rest of us played and took in some fresh air.
This is the very handsome Lightfoot, by the way. He was Eilidh's friend for the afternoon.
We love this place and all the people who serve there.
Thanks again, Life Rearranged for reminding us to notice the ordinary moments that we might otherwise miss.
Have you added yours up this week?
