daily moments – week 24

We have a birthday boy in the house this week! I will be doing a separate post just about Jonas tomorrow.

Here’s our week . . .

Brooks is into nature. He picks up bugs and shows them to me and then asks to keep them. I am fine with this as long as he doesn’t start collecting reptiles and birds.IMG_6243

Our bean tepee looks great! Now we are just hoping for beans.IMG_6253

This week Mark and I worked in the yard for several hours after bedtime. We were tired and I was eaten up with bug bites but the yard looked nice after and I had a nice pitcher of flowers on my counter to remind me of our hard work.IMG_6295

I made shrimp with Moroccan spices. I am in love with a new cookbook.IMG_6300

This week was a struggle. Not much sleep, lots to do and two brothers that fight about everything. Extra coffee was needed on this day.IMG_6316

A science experiment that worked.

One morning I didn’t hurry up and eat while the kids were watching. When they realized I was eating, they rushed in and wanted second breakfast. By the time, everyone had their own eggs mine were cold and everyone wanted to sit right next to me.IMG_20160609_081944437

We meet a lizzard this week.IMG_20160609_111518938

This pool has saved us in the afternoons. After Jonas goes down for a nap, the boys and I head outside. Summer is here and it is hot.

Brooks thinks he could be Japanese because he loves ramen, seaweed, and sushi. He was serious about this.IMG_20160611_164536

  1. Yep my 5 year old son is the same he’s bug crazy we’ve had a “wooghouse” (woodlouse) and a moth in a bug catcher that accidentally got its head cut off when he shit the door on the basket to stop it escaping indoors! So he cried for 10 minutes before he was off again catching ants !!
