Pouty Feet

March 24

I have obviously cut myself a lot of slack on this 365 project, but I'm keeping at it.  If I didn't have this project nagging at me, I never would have grabbed my camera on this typically busy yet unremarkable afternoon.  Sophie is currently obsessed with these silver ballet flats, and I'm glad I captured them today.

If my goal remains 365 photos, as opposed to just trying to get a photo a day until the end of 2015, I have 300 to go!

New Car

March 19

With a little imagination and a handful of markers, Michael and Sophie love to transform cardboard boxes into cars.  Lucky for them I do 90% of my shopping online these days.  New cars are delivered to our porch fairly often.

Registered for Kindergarten!

March 12
Michael and Sophie are now registered to begin kindergarten in the fall.  To give them a chance look around their new school, we took them to a book fair there.  Orientation is in May, but I'm too impatient for that!  Let's be honest--I needed a good look around to prepare for this.

This is the first picture of Michael and Sophie outside of what will be their elementary school.  Although Michael looks like he's going to make a break for it, he is leaning toward the door to school.  I'm going to take that as a good sign regarding his educational future.

Children's Library

March 8 color filter

We bought a couple of new bookshelves and relocated all of the kids' books to the hallway upstairs.  As one could predict, seeing the books in a new and more accessible location made them even more enticing than usual.

March 7

I'm not sure what game he was winning, but every time Michael threw a snowball into the yard today, he shouted, "Yeah!" and threw his hands in the air like this.  At least somebody is still loving winter.

Pre-K Feet

March 2

This afternoon Michael sat at my feet, began taking off his socks, and said he had something in there to show me.  It turns out it was his feet.  Sophie showed me the surprise as well.

"Yikes, the bottoms of your feet are purple!  We better get you to the doctor," I said.

"Nooo," Michael smiled.  "We don't need a doctor, just a bath.  It's only paint, Mama."

While I don't long to give more baths than necessary, nor do I wish for clothes to get ruined, I do find it quite satisfying when my kids come home dirty from their day's adventures.  Today's adventure was painting with their feet to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday after reading "The Foot Book."  Baths and messy play clothes are just part of the deal.

Table Soccer

March 1

When I saw Mike roll up the tin foil from his carry-out sandwich into a ball, I immediately wanted a Hostess Ding Dong.  Michael and Sophie immediately wanted to play.
