This year we checked out Blackberries of Houston. These bushes weren’t super tall, but still tall enough that I didn’t have to bend over much if I didn’t want to. There bushes, however, were thornless! It was great to not have to strategically plan my every pick. We will definitely be [...]
As an ode to Jackson Pollock, and because I have an empty wall space in need of some art, we did some action painting with the boys this weekend. I was so excited for this. From picking up random items for texture and interest to telling the boys that they were encouraged to get as [...]
Today we took a little field trip.
The main exhibit I wanted to see was the world’s largest book. The following is copied from the museum’s website, bolding emphasis is mine.
“In conjunction with FotoFest 2010, the Museum of Printing History is pleased to present Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom, to [...]
Never underestimate the adventures that can be had in your own (boring to adult eyes) back yard. Seriously. Our backyard is pretty boring to me. I need to work on that. Until then, we have sprinklers!
I’m adding two dry pics of the boys, because I can’t believe how quickly they are growing up. It isn’t [...]
(Sadly, I don’t have a photo to share.)
Today, I took the boys with me to Texas Art Supply after their art class. As we walked in, Aidan noticed that there was a second floor and immediately asked to go upstairs. Ollie was on my back, and I had just situated Aidan in a shopping cart [...]
Oh, what wise sages my children are. Constantly teaching me to alter my expectations and to not take anything too seriously. Here’s the best we could do for a photo of my boys and me.
And, if you insist, a photo with Ollie also looking at the camera..
Extra points for the painting [...]
I am constantly in awe of the women in my life. I have been so fortunate to be able surround myself with so many amazing mothers. Some, I see weekly. I talk to some daily. Others, I see less often, but still have their presence in my life. The ones I’ve grown [...]
Off to enjoy a beautiful day. I hope that you enjoy yours, as well.
Ollie’s new words:
phone – sounds like bone
coffee – (cah-key)
He’s working on thank you and you’re welcome, but I need to listen more to sound out how he says it phonetically.
Did you know that Spring is officially over in Houston? It is HOT here already! The other day the temperature gauge nearly touched 100. Heck, it may have in some parts of the city. We’ve been doing what we can to keep cool, but still get a bit of nature in our days. Recently, we [...]
Ok, so I kinda slacked on the last half of April. Woops. I had a birthday, so there’s that. We still got outside as much as we could for the great outdoor challenge. Admittedly, I’m sure I missed a couple of days in there somewhere. I joined a gym and the boys are [...]
