Monday: Jude slept in a little and woke up at 7:00 (yay!); we headed straight for the kitchen and ate breakfast. Traditional high five to dad goodbye. After breakfast we clean up the house a bit and get into the shower to get ready for our day. Reiley wakes up around this time- we usually head downstairs and the kids play while I kinda get what I need to do organized for the day, answer emails and get orders ready to go for the post office. 10:00: we head outside to play for a little bit. Check up on the chickens and make sure they have food and water. 11:00: I head inside and start making lunch- Reiley plays outside with Jude for a few minutes (I can see them in the backyard from the kitchen window). Call them in for lunch- I cooked a few corns (we just pulled our very first corns Sunday) and Jude ate his on the cob- it was too cute! 12:00: Jude down for a nap and Reiley starts her reading. I head down to work, photograph new items for new release and start editing. 2:00: Jude up from his nap (a little earlier than usual). We head out to run errands (I totally forgot my camera at this point- oh well). Grocery store, post office, printers and home. 4:00: Reiley and Jude play while I get dinner going. 5:30: Justin home and we eat dinner. 6:00: Clean up and head outside to water garden. Reiley has a huge interest in getting a camera lately so she asks if she can borrow my camera and take photos around the yard. She took nearly 100 photos. Some of them are really awesome- like the corn photo above :) 7:00: head inside, Jude falls asleep so I put him to bed. Justin and I watch a movie while I get some work done. Reiley joins us a little later and by 10:00 we are all in bed :)
My thoughts: It's tough to remember to take a camera while running errands and even though I have my phone it's not really in my mind yet to take a photo in the grocery store or post office. Not too worried though because I know I will be back in those places later this week so I will try again then. Tuesday went much smoother though and I was able to take more photos and was more thoughtful with my approach.
