Mark’s new obsession (and developmental milestone): building towers!
Ellie’s current obsession: making “salad”, i.e. cutting hundreds of tiny bits of fabric and paper. She spent close to two hours every day this week working on this project while Mark was sleeping. I LOVE it when she makes salad!
Last weekend, our carbon monoxide detector starting beeping randomly. It was giving us the “I’m broken” signal. Nik bought us a new one and as I was reading the instructions, I saw, “In seven years, this unit will expire and will start to beep every 30 seconds.” When did we get our first carbon monoxide detector? When we got married seven years ago and I moved in, I realized that our house had neither smoke alarms or a carbon monoxide detector. So we fixed that problem right away!
our seven-year anniversary alarm! :).
A fun morning of picking yellow wax beans from our garden ended up with six pounds of beans on the counter and four quarts of beans in the freezer.
Some brother/sister coloring time translated into Mark’s first official coloring experience.
Mark seems to be a bit of a tree hugger so now we’re calling him “Nature Boy”, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing to be!
And there you have it, a taste of our week, in pictures!
