Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. A very quiet, uneventful week … We got our family photo taken! All 8 of us (the max Target Portrait Studio will accept, BTW!) Those photos should be back next week =) And I did have the opportunity to meet a friend for lunch (sans children) yesterday. But there is no photo of the two of…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. My new kitchen companion—a statue of the Kitchen Madonna. She is proving to be a good source of encouragement as I embrace (or at least strive to embrace) my vocational duties day after day. Three months old! He is getting to be such a big boy! He is already growing out of 3-6 month clothes ……

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** Week 9 was pretty quiet around here … But week 10 was a bit more eventful. (Hence the combination of these two weeks into one post.) *** My older girls were in their spring play at school. Most of our digital record of their performances are on our video camera. So, no photos here. But…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. I have tried to photograph the moon before, but my little Canon point-and-shoot just doesn’t do the real thing justice. Nevertheless, the rising full moon was so gorgeous late last week. I couldn’t resist adding it to this post anyway. Even though we just got over a foot of snow, we can’t help but think of…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. We attended our children’s school’s benefit dinner. It was fun to get dressed up! The evening included a silent auction … My husband secretly bid on an item for me! We decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the 13th, because Monday (the 14th) was crazy for us. (Monday is the one day each week when all…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. Cheered on the Packers to a SuperBowl championship! A bit of wintery love. So happy he is feeling better. She is finally the big sister! And loving it! Love is in the air around here. Collecting and putting together baskets for our school’s silent auction tomorrow night. Pictured above: a knitting tote, a Norwex basket, a…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** A much calmer week than last. Although I did call the pediatrician twice and visit once, because my baby appeared to be having symptoms that looked like he was getting sick again. Can you tell I am just slightly sensitive to every cough and sniffle?! Thankfully, I have a very understanding pediatrician! It was perhaps…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. This week brought a very unexpected—and scary and hard—experience … My little guy spent four-and-a-half days in the hospital with RSV. My son was so tired when we brought him in, because he hadn’t been able to really sleep (or eat), because he couldn’t breathe well. Thank God for oxygen! This helped him breathe and calm…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. Since I am a bit behind in starting this ritual, I am doing my first one as a catch up. I guess this could have been titled 1-3/52. Now, I will be “caught up” for next time. (I hope this is OK.) Taking down the Christmas tree. And putting the enormous box across the couch and…
