The morning begins with a fire in the wood stove.
And imaginations ready for play.
The boys go outside and play in the snow…
and come in to dry their gloves by the stove.
Meanwhile, the girls work on puzzles together,
followed by a few minutes work on a cross stitch project.
Buddy pulls out his collection of Lego Lord of the Rings, and builds a trebuchet.
Pal decides to play with dominoes.
School activities are worked on. Here, Girlie is working on a narration of a tree with a tire swing for language arts.
All play with Lego for a while.
And Chickie chills out on my bed with the laundry after a long day.
And Mama? Mama enjoys coffee, with water heated on the wood stove.
This week we have been working on getting back into a routine. With colds and holidays, we haven’t had one of those in about a month! With school activities, household responsibilities, errands, and writing projects, I realized recently that I have been so caught up with living that I hadn’t even pulled out my camera since New Years Eve! This is in part why some of our recent posts have shown old photos.
So one day this week I took as many “what our day looks like” pictures as I could, and that’s what this post was based on. Nothing too exciting… just what it looks like in real life around here, mess and all.
Are you finding a return to routine since the holidays?
