Potty Training and Pretzels

This little guy is finally potty trained! It is so exciting to have my last kid out of diapers. We owe it all to a great preschool teacher who gave us a nudge to get it done!

Eddie of course gets m and ms as his potty training treat. And this kid lives off pretzels. One day last week when he was chilling watching a movie with his pretzels I took some time to snap some pics.

Project 366 Update

So my 366 project has kind of died, or at least taken a back seat to finishing up client work while trying to get ready for the big move. But I have been shooting now and then and I definitely want to pick my project back up in full force once we get settled in Iowa. But I did snap this one of Evie the other day. This is just in front of a housing development that we pass by most days.

Project 366 – Day 54

Middle school is so much  work. This sweet girl is so determined to do well. I am so impressed by her commitment even if it takes her till late at night. Poor thing.

Project 366 – Day 50

Saturday night Rick and I did a late night Walmart run while Evie stayed with the little kids. It’s amazing to me that after all these years (20 years) the simplest of chores and errands seem so wonderful when Rick is around.

Project 366 – Day 49

Today I met Evie outside her school after play practice so I could bring her a dress for her first school dance. It was so fun to see her walking along smiling and waving at other kids. After being homeschooled her whole life I guess I had a little anxiety about how she would make the transition to public school. But she has done so well. She seems so happy and adjusted. She has lots of friends and seems to get along with most kids. I am so happy.

Project 366 – Day 47

Ginny

This girl is such a delight. Lately she has started speaking with an English accent. The big girls have been listening to an audio book with a British narrator and Ginny has picked it up. She also just had a short stint as a vegetarian. For a few weeks she asked if everything was an animal before she ate and wouldn’t eat if it was. But yesterday she decided not to be a vegetarian since there aren’t “enough choices.”

She loves dressing up and yesterday she came down stairs and announced “here comes the queen of… Florida!”

Love her.
