Wow, it's been a crazy few weeks this month. We've been trying to sell the house (still), I've been trying very very hard to write my dissertation (spending on average 3-4 hours a day working on it), and we've been working to have fun family time as well. I'll be glad when those first two things are done so we can solely focus on the third which is really the most fun.
Here are some photos of our past few weeks. Starting at the top left, that's Maddy at our camp site earlier this month when we camped at Hood Canal. It was an awesome time. Bottom left is Maddy wearing her new Seahawks tutu. We are all pretty excited for football season to begin, Ted and Maddy even have new jersey's. Go Hawks! Bottom middle is Maddy with her face painted with a spider. She asked for the spider even though most of the little girls were asking for rainbows and tiaras. That's my little feminist! Top right is Maddy at the public library this past weekend. She and I went to play and get some new books. We had a great time. Middle right #1 is Maddy in her new reading corner in her room. Now that she has a bed, not a crib, we read nighttime stories there, and don't need her rocking chair so we turned her rocking chair corner into her reading corner with some new to us bookshelves and her little rocking chair. Middle right #2 is Maddy and I eating ice cream on our camping trip at a little store close to the campground. Middle right #3 is Maddy playing at the playground at the campground. We love love love that this campground has a playground and Maddy went at least 4 times while we were there. Bottom right is Ted, Bailey and Maddy down at the water at our camping trip. It is the most beautiful place ever with mountains and water all over.
So there you have it, a recap of our past few weeks. Hopefully soon we'll have more time for fun that we can capture on the blog. For now we're just plugging along trying to get it all done!
