|Another occupational therapy day at Ergoma. Fingerpainting. I'm interested to see if he'll do this. He hates getting his hands dirty.|
|Booyah! Success! This woman has some good tactics. Haha. Of course he had to wash after each touch.|
|This is what he does when I say "make a pose for the camera." Haha.|
heathermegan: He's getting so tall!
kristynberrett: He is really tall!
|For Kerstin, a daily picture of my peony bush to see the progress. This is the same bloom. It's a huge bush. Comes up to my shoulders.|
|Yay that Android phones have instagram now so my husband is on here. Follow him!|
|Last minute impromptu personal cupcake decorating class by THEE Jenni Bushman.|
|Gettin ready for my least favorite kids Easter activity.|
|Peony bush progress-- just as I said, one week from when I first noticed color on the buds will be tomorrow. Probably will bloom over the weekend. #nofilter.|
|Spencer learning the janitor trade (he was intrigued by the squeezing mechanism).|
|Spring cleaning has begun. I've already gutted the laundry room/storage room downstairs and am working on our guest bedroom/my office. Washer and dryer even got a good cleaning.|
|I looove my laminator. I've been a laminating queen today!|
|Modern Family Game Night for Family Home Evening coupled with chocolate passion dessert. Perfect end to the night.|
|Game Night was obviously boring for this kid.|
|Didn't make it to Instagram but this is Xanthe being my secretary. She wanted to earn money so I had her help me taking notes, organizing, and such. Here she is coming up with activities to help me plan for Spencer during the day.|
|Our first attempt at getting spencer to sleep through the night. No more crib, new sheets (Grammy sent them... Angry Birds and Thomas) and a side rail.|
|Choice to spend Spring Break... practicing volleyball with me at the gym. Hey I'm not complaining. One of the cheaper forms of entertainment and I'm proud they're practicing.|
|I got a little burnt on this overcast day.|
|Started the 8-week challenge with a few friends here. I gotta drink one of these 2-liter bottles everyday. Wish me luck! I'm off for a bike ride with Spencer. I want to win this thing! Or at least get pretty close!|
|Peony bush update for Kerstin Engelhart! It's starting!|
|Playing at the new Nature Reserve behind our house. In the background, the new playground and rock climbing wall has been closed to finish building. I already love this place!|
|Doing situps with me.|
|He was doing jumping jacks for me.|
|So excited. This apple farm is opening to the public now. It's only a few stones' throw from our house.|
|So excited when Spring is here and I can start adding strawberries and oranges or cucumbers to my water. It just doesn't feel right any other time of year. Try it, you'll like it, I promise.|
|One of Spencer's fav activities. Watching the trains at the train station. He has now deemed Clark his new "best frieeeeeend!"|
@jiggityjames: there is that awesome jacket again!
|Peony bush update: a few are opening! For @kerstinengelhart|
|Didn't make Instagram-- I've now found these at the grocery store and they are my new best friend. They are like Clearly Canadian. Do you guys remember those? Natural flavored sparkling water.|
|I love when I find YoGabba paraphernalia in German toy stores, albeit the American one, it's still overseas in my book!|
|Birthday cake! Lemon. Close second to tres leches from Cafe Rio.|
|Oh just a normal Sunday activity. Building new train tracks at Jenni Bushman's house with his new friend (because they both have the same obsession for trains). Spencer will be sad when Clark goes back to Arizona in a couple of weeks.|
|The girls found their own way to benefit from being a twin at Jenni's. Someone to help you exercise.|
|Schultz family-- look what I got in the mail today! Do you remember this from our childhood? Out of print but I found a used copy.|
|Mine and Spencer's unplanned afternoon activity. we were so bored so we were painting a race track on butcher paper the length of two rooms. So fun!|
|Woke up froma late nap and roped dad into racing on his new track.|
|Post-braids. For @heathermegan|
|Last peony bush update-- they're blooming! (and if you're late on this conversation I had a few friends ask to watch the progress). These aren't even full bloomed and lots are still waiting to open. Be still my heart. :)|
|Check out the size of this thing!|
|Building Big Red (from Cars). Not only is this a huge deal for his sensory issues (he never was strong enough to push them together) but he is preferring Cars over trains. Never thought I'd see the day.|
|Insisting he could get through. I kept telling him he couldn't. I just laughed until he finally asked for help.|
nsteimle: this made me laugh.
bethlamb: Awesome picture.
|Afternoon treat with my buddy (aka trying to keep him awake cuz he had no no nap). It didn't work. See next picture.|
bethlamb: He looks so tired!
|15 minutes later. Out cold.|
