Today I’m joining up with a group of fantastic ladies to host The Daily Dime. Once a month, I’ll be sharing ten photos to document a day in our life. Today’s post photos are documenting Tuesday, June 6.
Breakfast. Usually, during the summer, we like to sleep in. Today, Jase has a dentist appointment in Madison. We woke up pretty early (7ish) and headed straight for food. Coffee for me, oatmeal for Jase, and waffles with powdered sugar for both girls. Breakfasts of champions, right? =)
Jase has been fighting a few cavities for several months now. We’ve been brushing really good and the dentist has been applying fluoride in his office, but it looks like we are losing the fight. He did great at his appointment today, but we had to schedule a follow-up appointment at the hospital for dental work. He’ll need to be sedated for them to properly treat the cavities and my mama heart is scared to death!
There is no better way to recoup from a rough appointment than Bridgestreet Towne Center for lunch and a visit to Steel City Pops. Gra-Gra treated us to these pops and a trip to Sam’s Club. Buying in bulk always seems to be fun, doesn’t it?
Checking the garden. Justin got a little heavy-handed with the fertilizer a few months ago and almost half our plants died, but we still have a pretty good garden going. Any day now, we are going to start harvesting squash and zucchini!
Evening chores. Can you really call them chores when the kids love to complete them? We have 28 chickens, 2 rabbits, and 1 dog right now and it is the girls’ responsibility to feed and water them every day. Most days, they go out every morning and every evening to check the feed and water. We have just switched our chickens over to laying feed, so we should be getting fresh eggs in the next few weeks. They (ok, WE!) can’t wait!
Remember that farmhouse table Justin built for us several months ago? It’s been hanging out in my dad’s shop while we finished the house and now it needs a little revamping before we can move it in. Justin’s been working on sanding the top down and getting it ready to stain.
Bedtime reading. We are participating in Jamie Martin’s #ReadtheWorld summer book club and this book, The Journey That Saved Curious George: The True Wartime Escape of Margret and H.A. Rey, is first on our list. In case you are wondering, we give it five of five stars–it was really interesting! PS: This picture is so typical–the girls listening intently and Jase flopping around us!
We would love to hear all about your day in the life-link up with The Daily Dime below. The link will stay open for two weeks, so you still have time to capture a day and participate. If you aren’t ready this month, we would love to have you join us next month. July’s link-up will happen on Wednesday, July 12. Join The Daily Dime Link-Up:
