High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! It's been a great week and we have an incredibly busy weekend ahead. We had to reschedule Amelia's ballet lesson for Saturday, which is also the day she has ice skating lessons, so she will be on the go from 11 until 3. It's a good thing she is such a trooper and loves doing both so much. I also have my final photography assignment due, a series of self portraits that tell a story of my life. I'm excited to get the assignment shot and submitted.

First I want to share with you some incredibly exciting news!!! It has been a work in progress, but this Spring I will be launching an online children's clothing boutique. Here is a sneak peak of one of the items I will have in the store. I'm so anxious that I might launch a little earlier than my website and have items available either on this blog or on Instagram.

Now on to a recap of our week.

1. This girl is the sweetest thing. I am amazed every day at how kind, polite and well-behaved she is. I can take this girl anywhere and she is always on her best behavior. She has also been extremely helpful around the house, even when she isn't asked to be. The other day I found her in the kitchen emptying the entire dishwasher all by herself, heavy glass dishes and all.

2. I was served a delicious bowl of grass and flower soup. A true sign that spring is near.

3. This worm came wandering along the kid's sidewalk chalk mural the other day and it caused quite a commotion. First there were screams from both, then a lot of "EWWWWW"s and then lying on the ground to watch it before finally touching it. Who knew a single worm could entertain two kids for over an hour.

4. We spent several days outside enjoying the nice weather. It was a little chilly, but so nice to enjoy the outdoors.

5. I took my 5 year old to her annual check-up today. This was her treat of choice after getting a shot... only the best chocolate milk ever! Her doctor was quite impressed with our little lady. He hadn't seen her at all this year (with the exception of one appointment to get an asthma inhaler last spring) and he grabbed her little face and said "Let me take a look at this little cutie... so cute". Yeah, we love our doctor. She is 50th percentile for weight, but in the 80th percentile for height. They did a quick eye exam and recommended that we take her into an eye doctor since she didn't see as much as she should have during their test. Overall it was a great trip to the doctor. Hopefully we won't have to go in again until next year.

What are your plans for the weekend?
