We went to visit my sister and her kids this weekend. They live close to Dallas. Every year Plano, TX has a balloon festival. I’ve always wanted to go and this year it worked out for us to visit while it was going on.
On Saturday, just my sister and I went. We woke up before 6 and got there slightly before dawn.
It was nice just to hang out with my sister without the chaos that is all of our children combined.
Then Sunday morning we took all the kids and Joey.
I tried to get a picture of the girls together. This is what it’s like trying to get Delilah to take pictures while she’s dancing/posing.
With the two oldest both in school, and a baby that takes a few naps a day, I actually get some free time that I haven’t had in quite a while. So I’m going to be using this time to do some projects and make some art.
Today’s art is arrows. I used up the last of my pallet wood and wood glued them together.
Then sanded it all and painted it a light yellow. And then penciled in my design.
Then started painting.
I added a simple frame using 1×2 firring strips painted black.
Here’s how it looks in our little makeshift “mudroom”.
Thanks for looking,
The girls started school! We had a great summer, but they were so excited for school to start and so was this mama.
Aurora is a big 2nd grader.
Delilah is in Pre-K.
They don’t go to the same school yet. Aurora is totes jelly about Delilah not having to wear uniforms.
Delilah didn’t want to take pictures with her big sister. It was supposed to be all about her. (Aurora started school a week before her, so she already had her own back to school photoshoot.)
But then we asked her to hold baby sister, and all was okay again.
A look back at Aurora’s school pictures through the years because I love this part.
And compare the girls’ Pre-K pictures.
Elena is working on her sitting up. She’s almost mastered it. She is almost 6 months.
And since we are doing the comparison pictures, here’s one of all the girls. Elena might be slightly older than the other two.
Okay that’s enough pictures of my children.
