opening day.

of deer season.

i first posted this on fb.

hattie, the baby formerly known as fawn, is team deer!

 and then i had to make this. it just begged me to.
and then i peeked in on her and she just happened to be sleeping like this. so an instagram was in order...

"...and please keep all the fawns safe...and their mamas...and daddies too." #hattieprays #fawn

i just love her. kids are fun.

good luck hunters! stay safe. wish james was with you, but he has an upstairs to finish so this fawn and her sister can move out of our bedroom.

is it tomorrow today?

it's one of the most annoying questions eliza asks.

also related...

"who is coming here today?"

"where are we going today?"

"which house are we going to today?"

"are nana and papa coming today?"

"are all my friends coming today?"

so, to curb that, i had an idea.

make a calendar for her, and use magnets to fill the days.

obviously kids calendars are nothing new, but i wanted it to be more personalized.

more visual.

so i made these little polaroid magnets. 

a pic of her and hattie outside the library, near delia's brick (at church) deandra and reese (since i watch them twice a week, and most important, daddy's school schedule.

i'm sure i'll be making more as we go on, and adding holiday stickers or what not, but at least we have a start.

the button marks the day, and now i can just say "check your calendar!"

she is still in disbelief that when we lived in korea there were many days in a row that we didn't have someone come over, or go anywhere.

hey? it's my introvert side! i miss those days...sometimes!
