Project 365 Week 9

 I felt like this week was slightly slower than it has been for a while.  The kids were happy to have cousins visit early in the week, and then we had a relatively slow week after that.  The kids had lots of time to play, create, and learn with the lull in activity.

This girl is the queen of hilarious expressions lately.  She is super expressive not unlike her older sister.  I am just waiting until she adopts the side eye that all of my kids seem to have gotten from me (oops!).

These two are just shy of 5 months apart in age.  Zélie enjoyed trekking around after her cousin all day on Monday.   

A few weeks ago, I found a complete set of the original wooden Tinkertoys at a thrift store for a whopping $1.91.  The kids have been having an absolute blast playing with them.  Here Liliana shows off a car that she made.

The kids spent almost the entirety of Wednesday morning painting.  They were getting along incredibly.  It was all fun and games until Lily came into the kitchen to show me that she had painted the majority of her body a striking green color; it turned into emergency bathtime.  As much as I don't enjoy the mess that this sort of thing creates; I do enjoy getting a glimpse into Liliana's sense of wonder and curiosity.

Little Ish is contemplating what to paint next.  He and Atticus spent their whole morning painting again while Lily designed various paint free craft projects.  I love how art brings my kids together.  They spend the time chattering away and giggling as they create. 

To catch Atticus in a completely still moment is a rarity these days.  As posed as this shot appears to be, it is completely candid.  I love that I have a photo of him in his favorite orange shirt now.

This girl loves food and is especially excited about toast this week.  I have caught her cruising around the dining room table attempting to reach down her siblings' crusts a few times this week.
