7.15 – 7.21 week in review {insta-jd2}

7.15
today for lunch Jarod made us chicken enchiladas… however, what Liberty requested & was most excited about was a chicken stick! we had a great day together: played kissey face, impromptu follow-the-leader, lots of hugs/cuddles & giggles!

a challenging read but a good story! we also finished Little Pear & the first couple of chapters of Esther (me reading) today. we had some challenging times today… even so, i’m still head-over-heels thankful for our (baby) boy!

a pile of sewing projects waiting to be started… & finished. unfortunately, the pile in my head is so much bigger… AHHH!

Jarod’s computer screen was replaced & the computer was completely reformatted! thankful for local friends who are eager to help & bless us!!!

VIDEO: Sterling’s serving up elephant: crunchy ear & tail that tastes like bone or chocolate! Yum!

tired to the bone… he keeps pressing on. not yet 7 AM & he’s already taking care if business! for the rest of us mortals, we decided a day with 100% chance of rain means we’re home bound! & just like that mommy canceled school! 😉

oh joy, oh joy!!! cameras & reading lap time! Liberty’s choice: Poky Little Puppy. Sterling’s choice: Baby Dear.

(Liberty’s 1st) puddle jumping, stomping & running!!!

today I did 2 totally crazy things: cut/thinned out my own hair 😮 & made an Ikea run after the sprouts went to bed. sanity on both accounts is still pending. :-]

7.17
VIDEO: Sterling got a kick out of reading Addie’s Bad Day. love his excitement & giggles! 😀

life on the east side: flat tire repair & oiled chain = 65 cents. still baffled by their need to flower up every appliance, both big & small. in taxi on my way to get sprouts from pre-k had an involuntary passenger & detour thanks to driver’s desire to cash in on the supply/demand economical reality. some of these things I will miss… 😉

anyone feeling the need for this? 😉

Liberty’s discovery: doggy balloons! (& no, I didn’t buy one… no need when playing with several dozen tied to a bike invokes this degree of happiness!)

Sterling’s discovery: a real dog & an instantaneous friend. (& yes, once again we went home empty handed… & happy!)

7.18
spent my morning acquiring a large suitcase full of (hand-me-down) homeschool books… then spent a few minutes this evening marveling at so many goodies! CHRISTmas in July!!!

an asian perspective: carseat? seatbelt? what’s that? gonna miss my sweet girl riding in my lap during treks across town.

inevitably our sprouts will/do have gaps of information that I have failed to pass on to them… such as the fun of card games. thankful for friends who can help fill in those gaps… Go Fish!

now this is impressive! Sterling’s 1st time to (help) work a loom. the patience factor – with the loom & the helper – is both daunting & amazing!!!

in addition, the sprouts got a taste of the sweet life : making cookies! yet another gap in my mothering… Thank You Tricia for loving me & the sprouts well! our lives are sweeter because of you! 😉

one of the realities of life here: waiting & PRAYING for a taxi. which we did eventually get!

this morning Liberty was super happy. her bib says: it’s fun to be me & i confess, it’s also fun to be her mommy!

I wanted a picture of the sprouts together with the flowers, but was totally surprised by their interest in & admiration of them. as you can see, eventually I did get that desired picture… & the bonus of seeing the beauty of creation through the eyes of little children.

I thought Sterling was mistaken… but no, he was right when he declared a bee in my tea!!!

7.21
today’s SS lesson was lessons learned from David about thankfulness. so we took the opportunity to thank God for special people in our lives… & had fun making them cards as well.

our sprouts are baby crazy! in related news: today while riding on my bike on our way to church Sterling told me he wants 4 kids. when I asked why 4 he said so that when he rides his bike 2 can ride in the front & 2 can ride in the back! great logic Sterling but I can’t imagine any American (raised) child understanding it! LoL. 😀

precious girl… love her smiles, her toughness & her adventurous nature!

our boy knows how to put the gallop in a stationary horse & after swinging for a while figured out how to make playing with the swing itself fun. in all honesty, we’ve had a couple of trying days… I think a mommy/son date is in order. & I am more than happy to oblige! love our 1-on-1 times together!

VIDEO; bath time fun.
