over the last few days...

...nothing too exciting has been going on.  But I did try to pull the camera out to document a few things since I rarely ever do anymore.

Wednesday, Parker was in school....and so I had some one-on-one time with Grace.  This is one of the things I have been looking forward to having Parker in school 2 days a week.  But it's taking some getting used to.  Grace doesn't really seem to skip a beat...but she does 'need' me more because she doesn't have Parker to entertain her.  I even had an hour and fifteen minutes to kill while she was in dance...and it was like I didn't know what to do with myself.  Don't worry...I'll get used to this and plan ahead and fill my time alone just fine. 

We had an afternoon tea party....

 This morning we did a few school-like activities.  Practiced pre-writing skills with circles and straight lines....


Grace tries too...



I've had this activity printed out a while and never used...it's from Confessions of a Homeschooler and she just did letter matching (the spoons had the uppercase letters on them).  We'll do again later with lower case letters.




I kept little sis busy picking up spoons we weren't using.  ;)




Hiding from me before lunch....




While the girls were eating lunch....I decided that I wanted something sweet.  I decided on sugar cookies.  Easy and good.

BUT...this time I decided to go ahead and have all of the ingredients already measured out and we'd just have to pour and mix.  Grace is so grabby (more than Parker ever was)...so this helped tremendously.  And we had just as much fun as if they did the measuring.









Taking turns....





Their favorite part...



The terrible 2s have officially made their way into our home again.  Grace picked this shirt out to wear this morning.  Which is fine.  
She comes out and says to me...."Is my shirt on backwards?
 I said, "Yes- let me help you turn it around."  
Her, "No- I want to wear it backwards."  
And she did.  All day long.  She is a mess.

But she can be the sweetest thing, too.  Of the two- she is the one that will out of the blue just say, "I love you, Mommy."  And I say, "I love you, Grace."  Then she says, "I love you, too.  And I love Daddy.  And I love Parker."
Just the sweetest.
