366 Project: Week Seventeen

Week seventeen of fifty-two? Are you fo' real? I've barely even made a dent in this thing! Although, I will say that it's a whole lot easier to remember to take a photo now, at the end of April, than it was a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, though, this week there are a whole lot of iPhone snaps. Whatyagonnado? The best camera is the one you have with you, and while I thought about bringing the big camera a couple of times this week, I probably wouldn't have used it anyway. The iPhone is the more inconspicuous way to go.

113/366: When it comes to an inconspicuous shutter noise, the big camera is the way to go since you can't silence the shutter on a Korean iPhone. Nonetheless, the minute he heard the camera, the quiet, peaceful moment was over. He was done reading and off to get himself into more trouble!

114/366: We spent Saturday morning at the Awana games on base. Cade wasn't sure that he wanted to go; he was afraid all of that running would make his tooth hurt, but five minutes into it, he'd forgotten all about that tooth!

115/366: Sunday night, we had dinner on a friend's rooftop to celebrate another friend's birthday. As always, we were the only ones who brought kids, but our kids like to mix it up with the adults. It was a beautiful night for a dance party on the rooftop! (photo cred goes to Eric; apparently he's wanting the recognition now!)

116/366: On Monday, I was all about the "eating down," so I made a vegetable barley stew (which only made a slight dent in the barley and cost a lot in vegetables = eating down failure), so I also made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (made a good dent in the oatmeal and the chocolate chips = eating down success!).

117/366: We had friends over for dinner on Tuesday night, which was a ton of fun because they're hilarious, but with a baby and two toddlers (plus the big kids), it's always a little crazy. I remembered to load them up with LOTS of things they may or may not need, but I did not remember to take a picture. I did, however, remember to take a picture of the glorious spring day we were having on my walk to the grocery store. It was 85 on Tuesday! Woot!

118/366: Because we've lived in this neighborhood and complex for such a short time, I'm finding myself putting in some effort to document it. That's the side view of our building.

119/366: On Thursday, Reece and I took what I hope will be our last trip to the hospital here. He needed one last vaccination before we leave (since I opted out of the Japanese Encephalitis vaccine). Actually his next vaccine is due the day we fly out, so that's convenient, right? Anyway, I have hated nearly every trip to this hospital, because even after all of this time, it just doesn't all make sense to me. Why can't my baby and I just stay put and have everyone come to me like I'm used to, instead of us running around, forgetting where to go and in what order to do everything? Yet strangely, as I left today with official immunization records in hand, I found myself getting a little misty-eyed leaving the hospital where my baby was born, never to return again. Explain that one to me, will ya?

This weekend, we'll be heading to KAIAC soccer games, as our school is hosting the girls' soccer tournament, and my friend that I used to coach with is in town. We'll also be going to a middle school dinner, doing homeless ministry on Sunday and trying to get the house cleaned up and cleaned out for Nancy and Michael to get here on Wednesday and the school rummage swap on Friday. Things will no doubt be a little quieter here next week with company in town, but I'm going to try and get Reece's 15-18 month post done before that completely escapes me as we enter Crazy Town (otherwise known as May!). Hope y'all are having a great week!


  1. Thanks for the credit on that photo :) My favorite is the one of Reece reading. Looks like we'll have 3 readers. I also liked the one of the apt. Can hardly tell that's where I live!

    1. He is quite a reader already! And, yes, I think that side view of the building is a better shot than the front!
