Our Tuesday: Week In the Life

Hello Friends!

Here are some of my favorite photos from Tuesday.


That's my life with a gamer boy, friends.


My first cup of the day.


Our only maple tree sure is lovely this time of the year.


Ben just getting up. He loves those pajamas.


He painted a pumpkin in those PJs.


And he made faces in those PJs. They are clearly Buzz Lightyear PJs but he calls them Boba Fett pajamas and he wears them all. the. time. If he's not wearing the one of two pairs of these PJs that we own then he's wearing a pair of PJs from the "B" pile. That's definitely something I want to capture in this album.


This is the state of my desk right now - eeeeeep!


Those toes...


that smile...


that's my Benny.


The story of clutter continues in the kitchen.


Right now, the apples taste so great. I can't get enough of them.


Tuesday is the one day out of our week when we don't have to be anywhere or do anything in particular until Gabriel gets out of school.

The rest of our Tuesday was pretty routine - pick up Gabriel from school, head to gymnastics, groceries and then home to make supper, homework and bed. I don't have pictures but I'm ok with that. I'll capture it with journaling.

I want to collect all the information before I tell some of the stories of our week - like a collage of the food we ate this week, the video games Gabriel is playing, what we wore all week (sweatpants or PJs or jeans) and how the boys love to eat mini muffins but not the same kind. I want to combine big picture stories with stories of the mundane instead of favoring one over the other.

I think the big picture stories will be richer and more interesting if I tell them when the week is over. It would be even better if I could shift my focus to include all of us. What are we, the parents, wearing/eating/doing/watching?

This is part of making my WITL different. I'm trying to figure it out as I go along because I can't help but wonder what my finished album will look like if I'm more thoughtful about the stories.

Thanks for stopping by!
