I’m in Orlando for this year’s Grand Meetup (which of course I’ll blog about later) so Daddy had to fill in as the photographer this month.
I am leaving my wonderful colleagues a day early because the boys have a soccer tournament this weekend, so while I am sad to miss a day with everyone here in Florida, I’m excited to see my boys again. (Oh and guess where the soccer tournament is? That’s right. Florida. I’m flying home from Florida tomorrow and I’ll be driving back to Florida with the boys in the afternoon.)
No school today, thanks to the threat of Tropical Storm Gordon.
Yeah, we’re hilarious. (And not really in much danger, thankfully.)
See the previous 128 monthly pics here.
Not an easy one, 128 months. Three shots in was this. (Titled, COME ON MOM HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU ACTUALLY NEED TO TAKE WE SMILED ALREADY GEEZ COME ON CAN WE JUST GO TO THE PARK ALREADY?!?!??!?!)
So this is the best of the lot. You can see Oliver’s signature furrowed brow, as referenced in this video from four years ago.
Soccer and flossing. This is 10 years and seven months.
The last ten July 4 pictures, just for fun.
And bonus: I made these culottes/shorts for myself for the 4th.
The picture keeps freaking me out because the wood floor looks like my right leg, which is really behind my left leg. Anyway, you might not be able to see, but the fabric is navy with white stars. This was taken at my friend Steph’s house and I love how warm and New Orleans-y her kitchen is.
Happy half birthday, LOMZ!
(Okay, we don’t know Ziggy’s birthday exactly, but the vet says he was about 1 when we got him, which was around the boys’ birthday, so we pretend they have the same birthday.)
The 125 previous months can be seen here.
Don’t worry, I took this on the right day, just didn’t have time to post until now.
The smiles were purchased with pastries from Gracious Bakery on the way to school on the last day of LEAP testing. It’s been a grueling week, so they needed a little treat for getting through it. (Not riding the bus was an added bonus.)
Only 3.5 weeks of fourth grade left! I can’t believe it! Those memes about the end of the school year are so, so true.
To make them smile for real, all you have to do is tell them something about soccer that you thought was right (but you know is wrong) and they’ll laugh at how dumb you are.
1-2-3 months! (Miles just pointed that out to me.) (He’s watching me write this post.)
Linus was not happy. Actually, none of them were, but at least Oliver and Miles faked it.
