the beginning of march feels like eons ago with everything that has changed in our world over the past couple of weeks. here’s some photos from daily life before everything started shutting down and we started self-isolating as a family.
march fifth was world book day, which is a big deal in british schools. kids get to dress up as a character in a favourite book, and families get more into it than halloween! i love this tradition and that moses got to participate this year. at the beginning of the week of world book day, moses got to make a puppet of a favourite book character. he chose elmer the patchwork elephant and he and i had a lot of fun creating together!
a gorgeous flower stall and a gorgeous sunset!
magnolias!! springtime in london has to be one of the most glorious and joyous things on the planet.
we did some prep for mo’s annual easter egg hunt – this year we decided to invite all his school friends – but one week before (and one hundred stuffed plastic eggs later) we had to cancel due to covid-19. we’ve been having lots of mini easter egg hunts around the flat lately!
on world book day itself, moses used his old elephant halloween costume to dress up as elmer. he was sooo psyched and it was so cute and fun to watch him show all his pals when he got to school, and see their costumes, too.
more magnolias … and a screenshot i am really proud of. i had a goal to keep my screen time under an hour for a week and i did it!
at what we didn’t know would be our last swimming lesson for a while … gabriel and i have to wear these little booties over our shoes when we drop barefoot moses off pool-side, and i just think gabes looks so dang cute with them on, haha!
yes, i loooooove magnolias … and couldn’t believe my luck when i saw this cool pink car parked right in front of a perfectly blossoming tree!
the boys have been really into doing “races” before bed. they just run back and forth across the living room laughing their heads off. it’s a pretty happy way to end the day.
from about the 15 march, we started self-isolating as a family. it’s been a wild and challenging experience (and it’s only just beginning), but we have much to be grateful for.
