Early morning. Karen heading out to run before breakfast.
After school, I played with my camera timer while I did chores around the house. Brushing the cat hair off the furniture is a daily chore.
So is folding laundry.
Karen and Kylie went to the park after dinner. Kylie got very sandy so she got sprayed off with the hose.

Lots of hopping on one foot every day and night around here.
Playing in the rain before swim class on Wednesday.
My favorite shot of the day and of the week so far.

This is Kylie's new smile-at-the-camera smile and I just love it. It cracks me up. I have two fun new games to share with you.
The first is Tell Tale. There are pictures on these two-sided cards. The way we play it (and there are lots of ways to play) is that each person draws 3 cards. The first person lays down their card and starts a story based on the picture. The second person lays down one of their picture cards and adds to the story. The third adds to the story and so on. Kylie loves stories and she likes creating one as a family.
Tell Tale - Pocket Collection
The second game is Spot It. This one works best with Kylie if just me or Momma play with her. We each draw a card and flip it over. These two cards will have at least one image in common. Whoever spots the matching images first wins.
This past weekend Kylie was playing in the toy room and asked me to read to her while she played. I stared reading from Molly The Goldfish Fairy (Pet Fairies #6). I've tried to read a chapter book to Kylie before and she wasn't interested. But now she is! I read a few chapters while she played and later, when I asked her about the book, she knew all about the plot. So she was able to listen and follow along while she played. Momma and Kylie finished the book after dinner on Monday night.
You know me. I was so excited to be reading from chapter books that I ran right out and bought some more.
While we were at the toy store picking up the new games, we saw these Quick Milk Magic Straw Chocolate
Kylie thought the straw was cool and yummy. "How is this happening?" she asked with this great expression.
Hope all of you are having a great day!

This week, I'm participating in Ali Edwards "Week in the Life" Project. It's an opportunity for me to pick up my trusty Nikon (which has been sadly neglected for over 6 months). It's an opportunity to take lots of pictures and take lots of notes about our day-to-day life. You can read more about it here
here and here.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from Monday.
Showing Phoebe the cat her new ring that lights up.
Helping to feed the cats (stinky work but Kylie always helps me).
Goddard School. Kylie's summer preschool.
Magic week at school. A magician came to Kylie's school and put on a magic show. We got Kylie a magic wand to play with and to take to show-and-tell on Friday.
Diving for the Ariel Mermaid pool weight.
So many more pictures to share with you! Stay tuned!
