This Week's Photos

This last week was sort of a blur. I'm feeling exhausted and overwhelmed and I'm not totally sure why because I'm not completely sure what happened in the past 7 days. We were busy but we had fun and that's what it's all about right? Right...

Well, I've been doing a new schedule/routine around the house and it's working really well for us. Elora and I have a schedule that we stick to pretty strictly and I'm loving it. One of the new things we do every morning at 8am is Table Time, I do my Bible study and Elora colors and listens to me read. Elora is starting to memorize Bible verses so we work on her new verse for the week during Table Time. Last week she memorized Romans 3:23 (check out the cute video here). We're using the alphabet as our guide to which verses to memorize, so this week we moved on to B. I'm making some cute cards to help us get excited about memorizing the verses :)

Elora's grandpa came over Saturday to do some tree trimming and put up a swing in the back yard. Elora was a great helper.

Once Daddy and Grandpa got the tree ready, it was time to test the swing before they hung it :)

After church on Sunday, we grabbed some lunch from the grocery store and headed down to the river for a picnic. Elora loved the water and spend most of the time throwing rocks in the river.

And while grocery shopping this week, I picked up some peonies. They started out a really vibrant hot pink and have faded to a super pale baby pink. Some were almost white when I finally tossed them this morning.

I'm hoping for a slower week this week but I don't see that happening...hopefully I can get some sewing done and do some preparations for this baby that's coming in 12(ish) weeks! I can't believe how little time I have left...I really have done nothing to get ready. Time to do some sorting!


  1. I love the picture of her on the swing! I bet she's excited to have one of her own, now :)

    Do peonies usually do that? I've never seen that before!

    1. Bethany, I didn't know that peonies did this and don't know if it always happens, but it was fun to watch the change :)
