Oh man, what a week. This week included improvements in dog training (slightly less intense barking at other dogs when Ash sees them, and even quieting down completely with two different dogs!), and some minor setbacks in dog training (one poop in the house, bah!), a date afternoon to see Godzilla, which was pretty cool, and sadly, this week has ended with Joe fully incapacitated with a pulled back muscle. I feel so bad for him! I think this week felt busier than it was, mostly due to completely normal (yet maddening at times) toddler antics, such as the whole “NO!” thing that kids this age do, and the endless questions. Overall, things are okay, but it’s been a little stressful. Luckily this project and these pictures remind me of the sweet times that happen every day, and I’m really grateful for all of the little magical moments that happen amidst the chaos.
Day 138 | May 18, Sun – The only pic I took this day was of Homer playing in the bath tub with his “crazy sand” that he absolutely loves. I forgot until later that he was playing with it naked, and the pics really aren’t ones I want to share online! So here’s a pic taken at the park we love to go to! Very Spring-y and pretty out there. I am loving Spring!!
Day 139 | May 19, Mon – Usually the bulletin board by the mailboxes has postings for Yoga classes, random furniture for sale, requests for carpools, and the like. This colorful sign was far more fun to read!!
Day 142 | May 22, Thurs – We were playing with bubbles outside, when our neighbor came out to enjoy the sunshine with her baby girl. Homer, of course, jumped right in. I love that he took baby Penny’s hands so gently and said, “Let’s dance!” then bobbed about very gently with her. No pic of that, unfortunately! But here’s everyone enjoying themselves (including Ashton, who is getting some love, too!).
As always, thanks for stopping by! Hope you all had a great week!
