in the moment...




life has been so busy.... between school, dance, swim lessons, and the various colds each day seems to pass as quickly as it comes. besides all that.... here is a little bit of what has been happening in our days.

  • i completed phase one of eislee's doll hair. then i left the ball of yarn a little too low and found it completely tangled and useless... ugh! went back to the store where i bought it to find that they aren't carrying that color anymore.... double ugh!! then i found it on amazon... eight dollars shipping for three dollar yarn... make that a triple ugh!!! but it is on its way and i will post pictures soon of the progress (and i found cheaper shipping).
  • we made some of these love bug valentines and these friendship bracelet valentines they were so much fun! i know it's a little late but check them out and bookmark them for next year... she has so many wonderful ideas.
  • i am extremely excited about all of the reading that's been happening around here... such a fun thing to witness. you can witness a little in the photos above... so sweet.
  • all of the bulbs that i planted in fall are beginning to peek out of the ground (yes, yes, yes!!) and it really makes me want to get out there and do a little weeding and plant some of those summer bulbs i saw in the store yesterday.... hmmm.
  • i highly recommend swimming lessons in winter. in the summer the hot stuffy air inside the pool is almost unbearable but in winter it actually feels pretty amazing.
  • little miss ollie jane is crawling everywhere, pulling up, walking along the couch, and standing here and there... i do believe walking is not far behind.
  • remember jump rope on the playground? and cat's cradle? yo-yo's? good stuff. i'm teaching maiko and layla how to jump rope.... they love it! do you remember any of the little rhymes or games? unfortunately i only remember the inappropriate ones (go figure). but if you remember any and could share them in the comments maybe? we would really appreciate it!
