indoor bball



We’ve moved into this new year like a sleep-deprived mother moves out of bed — slowly, bed-head and all. Although Mark did remove the Christmas tree to the fire pit area of our backyard, our ornaments and other accouterments lie waiting in piles to be nestled back in the attic until next November.  I’ll get to it soon. For now, we’ve started our school routine again, practicing having an agenda for the day beyond brushing your teeth and getting dressed and playing (because it takes practice, you know). We’ve had several days of cold, gloomy winter weather and heavy rain the last two — which I will never complain about after experiencing a year + of drought — so we’ve been spending more time indoors this week than usual. Here’s us lately:

1. bundling up in warm layers (Mark refers to this one as my “lumberjack”)

2. smothering the kitchen table with school work and projects again

3. reading in our beds

4. venturing (even in the rain) to our farmer’s market

5. enjoying the simple life (but also swooning over Swedish farmhouses)

6. playing ENDLESS amounts of indoor basketball in the boys’ room (thanks to a Christmas gift from Jordan + Christa)

7. waking up to “say cheese!”
