May 2020. A lot of family time, some biking, some trampoline, and so many screens (which, of course, I don’t take cute videos of ).

The sun came out for the perfect golden hour of puddle splashing tonight (swipe for Rowan ).

Our backyard pool is slightly longer than one Annabelle, but that’s all she needs to have a good time.

Last year I bought this on end-of-season-clearance then promptly forgot about it until yesterday. Hooray for my hoarding tendencies!

We did a thing! I am a novice and will be delighted if we harvest anything but, here’s what we can hope for: strawberries, green, red and jalapeño peppers, white onions, tomatoes and grape tomatoes, string beans and cucumbers. There’s also some lettuce that will only last a little while, some oregano and basil. I’m so excited to work hard and see what comes!

First Day of School / Last Day of School what a freaking year

last month

April 2020. Lots of home, neighborhood walks, baking, home, messes, home and togetherness.

6:30 on Monday morning? Yeah, take all the screens. Week 7 of this weird world and I just don’t care anymore.

last month

We bought a trampoline. I forgot that I hate trampolines. It will be a miracle if my nerves survive this.

I love a little kid discovering puddles. So dang satisfying. (Yeah he’s still in last nights pajamas but now they’re soaking and will be changed. )

Finally, at a quarter to sunset, she’s ready to ride her bike and the chain keeps falling off. Daddy to the rescue until we figure out a way to get her a new bike.

Conducting the bubble orchestra.

This is how we use our gross motor skills these days. 😝

Remember early March when we still went places? Sigh.

My number 1 favorite spring/summer outdoor toy is a cheap bubble machine. This one was $4 on clearance from target last fall and is saving our third Monday of isolation.

Mar 2020

It’s a perfect morning for a walk (before spending the entire rest of the day at home watching screens, bickering amongst ourselves and baking up a storm ).

This is how I parent now. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Annie and her cousin in CT playing Sleeping Queens over Facebook messenger is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a long time. @taryndisorbo
