Valentine's Day- Feb. Project

I totally thought today's photos would be from EK's Valentine Party at school. And while I did get some cute photos there, she and I headed back to the park. This time I had my camera (and our dog). The first couple of months she had this bike, she was very timid (which was odd). I don't think she understood that she was in control of the bike-instead she let the bike control her. In the last few weeks though, something has clicked. She now speeds through the park, over the bridges, down hills at full speed. That is the EK I expected-no fear. We also did some exploring in our favorite Auburn park and saw some hints of spring!!

Feb. 14-Valentine's Day

Feb 13. Feb. Project

Feb 13- forgot my camera at the park.

Feb. 12 Feb Project

Basketball tryouts. The floors before a new season starts--squeaky clean and looked like they could ice skate on the glassy surface. (and since I did not get media releases for the kids trying out, this is the only way I could post a picture of tryouts )

Feb. 11- Feb. Project

We are knee deep in East Alabama Elite. Tryouts today. See you again in August. (But I admit, I love the kids and love watching MikeyT and Unc coach)

For those of you who have already seen all of February Project-SORRY! These are for the folks that do not get on facebook!

Feb 10- Feb. Project

Today Emma Kate had lots of surprises. First, I picked her up early from school. She was one happy camper. Then, when we got home, the mail man had left a great-big box with her name on it. It was full of Valentine goodies from MeMe and Hoppy. Then, a knock at our front door?! It was MaMa! She came to take us to Laredo's for dinner! And to think at the beginning of the day I had no idea how I was going to incorporate "surprise" into just another normal Thursday ;-)

Feb 9-February Project

 Emma Kate goes through several clothing and shoe changes every day. Today we had school and then ballet, so I was not surprised with shoes #1 and #2. Then, when we get home, I usually kick off my shoes and relax my feet shoe-free. Emma Kate, however, relaxes by putting on her pink boots. Maybe if I has some really cute pink boots, I'd wear them all the time, too.

Feb 8- Feb Project

Today I was totally drained, uninspired and just plum tired. So, before I lost all light, I grabbed the camera and in a total of about 20 seconds I yelled "emotions" at EK and told her to make the face. She is a pretty good little actress because without the slightest thought, she went from Sad to Happy to Mad to Scared to Goofy, etc. I was clicking away while she hammed it up. What I learned today: She is just too dern cute to NOT be inspired, so I am already thinking about tomorrow's picture.........

Feb 7- Feb Project

This was not going to be my picture of the day today, but I took it at 11:52, so it counts. We had a tough, hard and draining day. It was that kind of day where your 2 o'clock appointment gets pushed back to 3:45 and at 5:30 you realize you won't make it to pick up your child in time. Thank goodness for mom and Michael who jumped in a car and picked her up before daycare closed! And they fed and entertained her until we could get home. Even after a yucky day, I sleep easy knowing my fam always has my back.

February 6- Feb. Project

Today there was enough sunshine to head over to Mom's house with Emma Kate's bike. We rode around the circle and had a great time. Sadly, it seems the weather this week will be cold and wet, so we got all the bike riding in we possibly could and hopefully that will hold us over until the sun comes back.

Feb 5th- February Project

For the first time in a long time, we had absolutely nothing planned for today. I was excited: we could sleep as late as we wanted, do a little cleaning, watch some TV. After playing a few games with EmmaKate, she headed up to her room. She played so well and so quietly for so long--which made me nervous. When I checked in on her this is what I found.
1. A complete mess
2. ALL the "makeup" Santa brought her lined up on the table
3. A tad too much lotion on her hands and face.

Tomorrow, we will have scheduled events planned from sun up to bed time.
