Our Everyday Life: Positively Busy

Week 37 was super busy. Not wasting time busy but making lot with our time busy. AMI was busy busy preparing lessons and being exams supervisor. This busyness meant that I had to take care of the house chores all by myself. But over the weekend I was able to take some precious hours for myself. I went to the first workshop of the writing season. It was hosted by my writers’ group. I believe Bicycle Race by Queen
Also I can't believe week 37 started freezing cold. We had to harvest our veggies before the frost killed them. On Monday AOI didn’t nap, she went to preschool, three times during the week and the teacher told me that AOI told she was tired. Once back home after a while she told me that a boy in her class pushed her because he didn't want her to stand up. I told her that if that happens again, she should tell the boy to use his words instead of pushing her. And then she should tell her teacher if anyone does something to her she doesn't like.
I pray hard nobody bullies her.
One evening during this week, I believe on Tuesday, I did the bedtime routine and my heart jumped a little when I lifted daughter to find out that she was getting all grown up, too fast, too fast. I was a little sad because I worried that too soon I'll be too feeble to lift her in my arms to rock her. This knowledge tears me apart. But on the other hand I love to see her grown into this clever and beautiful little human being.
I like to see my toddler pretend being a baby. Deep inside I’m happy she wants to keep her baby side alive but, as fun as it's to see her on the floor with her brother, I don't like the dirt she picks up.
Friday evening one of my artist friends asked me if I could take some pictures for her during her first art exhibition. To kick off the art/writing season my writers’ group fourth workshop tutored by a world YA bestselling author took place in our city on Saturday. It was a SOLD OUT event with ten people on the waiting list. The workshop fuelled all of the participates. Since then I’m making writing SOLID in my life.
Sunday I was the ‘official’ photographer for the Sunday School scavenger hunt. Toddler had a two hours nap and in the afternoon daddy took her to a sport shop to buy her a soccer ball.
So we all went into the park to try the new football.

  1. love all of the photos!
    My son is 4, almost 5 now. And truthfully he is way too big for me to carry around anymore. He is 56 pounds! LOL. But every morning, as we have for all his life, I wake him up and carry him down the stairs with his head on my shoulder, legs wrapped around me waist. It's hard now. I have to lock my arms and bend at the knees when I pick him up.But i am not ready to give it up!

  2. Too beautiful! I was sad when I read someone pushed AOI! I would be so upset. Hopefully, he's since stopped that. I don't like it when kids are not gentle with each other. I expect that at that age, they should still have their innocent minds.

  3. I like your perspective - especially with the kids, you seem to try to show things from their perspective (and do a great job). Thank you for sharing, glad you're "back"!


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
