Ten on Ten: July 2011

My laptop is at the doctor's (aka my brother's). Looks like it needs a new hard drive. Cue the sad music. I borrowed my mom's laptop just for today, but will be without one for the rest of the week. As such, you won't hear from me until next Monday. I'll (hopefully) be using the down time to work on my ever growing to do list. But to tide you over, here's what we did today, courtesy of this month's Ten on Ten.

10:00am hour - On the way to church. Mark and I were very happy because today is
the first day that Charlotte walked into her class without hesitation. Yay!

11:00am hour - Charlotte was so proud that "the lady" wrote her name on her
Sunday School paper. She couldn't care less about the stickers she put
on it, just about the name her teacher put on it.

12:00pm hour - As with most Sundays, we grabbed lunch out. Today we had
Burger King and all three of us munched on onion rings.

1:00pm hour - Then we stopped at Target (seems to be a running theme for me
on these Ten on Ten days) and Charlotte tried on a "beach hat".

2:00pm hour - We headed home, Starbucks in hand, to do some work on
the yard. Everything has been weeded and trimmed.

3:00pm hour - This is one of my favorite spots. It gets a lot
more shade than any other part of the yard and is home to the
$8 birdhouse I just picked up at Marshall's.

4:00pm hour - We took a break from the yard to eat some ice pops
and play with Charlotte's viewfinder.

5:00pm hour - But then went back outside to keep on working. We have
tons of bumble bees and butterflies in the yard, and
Charlotte likes to point out all of them.

6:00pm hour - We bought a playset on Craigslist and Mark scrubbed it down
(yes, that's a toilet brush he's using) so we could put it together.
I'm sure there'll be photos of it in action in the coming weeks.

7:00pm hour - Charlotte had dinner, but Mark and I were too worn out
from putting the playset together to worry about getting anything
for ourselves. We just relaxed instead.

Wonderful day! I love her little legs and the viewfinder - a timeless childhood picture.

Great photos, as usual. Glad you found a swingset, finally. Can't wait to see the pics of it in action. I'm sure Charlotte will love it.

Looks like a good day. I love the beach hat on your daughter- so cute.

Kim said...

I totally recognized that bird house from Marshall's. One of my favorite places. :)

Your garden looks great!

What a great day! Isn't in funny how kids like one thing in particular, and often its not the thing we expect them to like? I hope your laptop gets better, I hate being without mine!

This set couldn't be any cuter - love that cheesy smile with her adorable hat on (and love that yellow/grey dress). Adorable.
