We have another Hour by Hour Challenge completed by Vanessa Seifert! Here is what she had to say about her experience!
6:53 am – kids had already been up for a while when finally gathered enough courage to leave my comfy warm bed to capture them playing with their Legos. Ever since they were born, they have yet to sleep past 7:30 am, regardless of bedtime…weekends, holidays, etc…
7:36 am – Not sure what got them both reading in Zarah’s room but when I got up, for the second time =D, there they were.
8:44 am – Zuri working diligently on making us all waffles for breakfast.
8:51 am – Waffles!!!
10:17 & 10:58 am – Piano practice. Not the kids most cherished moment of the day but we try to get that out of the way before we do anything else. Work before play 😉
12:06 pm – Zuri was playing outside with Pluto while my husband set fire to a HUGE pile of dried leaves and branches we had collected in the backyard. here he was getting Pluto a drink from the water hose
12:43 pm – The much anticipated “ipad time.” They really look forward to their weekly allotment of 30 min playing hand-picked games on the ipad.
1:20 pm – Time to give the filthy four-legged child a bath. Zarah did it all by herself like a pro.
2:21 pm – Zuri doing his laundry to make sure he has clean clothes for school the next day.
2:56 pm – Linner, it is kind of like brunch but between lunch and dinner.
4:01 pm – Zarah cutting the pattern for a new dress for her doll.
5:05 pm – Sewing the dress
6:07 pm – Zarah and her doll wearing the new dress she made
8:27 pm – A very happy doggie anticipating some celebratory popcorn after the kids were in bed for the night. The adult’s reward for another day we all survived =-)
Vanessa has also done this Day in the Life Project in years past. Here are her images from her project from 2019 as well!
