Hour by Hour.
A project collaboration with my talented friend Jess, please be sure to head on over to check out her hour too!
Showcasing our daily routine one hour at a time. Starting from the early hours of the morning, until the very end of the day, we are sharing our life with you.
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that we really take for granted. The moments we hang out, not doing much, but together. The rush of getting dressed and getting the breakfast routine done and dusted. The school run. The never ending supply of laundry. Sitting together for mealtimes.
I don’t want to force my family into activities that they have no interest in, just to get a pretty photo. They won’t appreciate those memories in 30 years. They will appreciate that we lived. We lived together, we fought, we cried, we laughed, we played. We enjoyed life.
This is our story.
During the cooler months when it gets dark real quick, we’ve had dinner, cleaned up and showered and kids are all in bed almost asleep by around 7:30pm. Since the days have been longer and warmer and now the kids are on holidays, bed time has stretched out a bit, which works well for me because surprisingly they have been sleeping in til a good time in the morning.
Silas, without fail, every evening after dinner has been asking if he can go outside. I figure he’s just about to have his shower anyway so he may as well go get filthy. Of course when one goes outside, the others follow. When they’re out on their own, I just can’t trust them for many various reasons but if I’m out there with them, they are pretty co-operative and productive. This was one of those nights. They all just had something to do and the light was beautiful and maybe being the season for it, I just felt a sense of peace come over me.
So with that, this is the last hour of this project and I’m so happy it ended this way. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy 2017! I’ll be back with some new projects in the new year, keep an eye out =)
18:30 – 19:30 – After Dinner
