Virtual Day in the Life

Hey!  Hey!

Just last week I shared my Tuesday over on Insta-Stories.  I posted every hour-ish, got lots of questions {that I’m answering in this post}, and decided I’d share here as well in case you missed it.  

5:20 a.m.
Twice a week I do a workout class at my gym in the wee hours of the morning.  This class is kind of an at-your-own-pace type class with an emphasis on heavy lifting.  I’m getting there.  🙂

6:15 a.m.
I’m looking ROUGH after that 45 minute workout!  Shay and I meet at the gym twice and week to get our workout on.

7:30 a.m.
I showered, got myself dressed, woke up the crazies, and got them breakfast.  I am so much more productive if I get myself together in the morning.  It doesn’t always happen, but I’m always so glad on days that it does!

8:07 a.m.
I went upstairs to check on the boys’ classes.  This kid was already tardy because he kept saying his computer wasn’t turning on.  Insert my side here right now…he just wasn’t holding the POWER button down long enough.  Bowen’s signs are from Pottery Barn Teen.

8:20 a.m.
I did a quick sweep through the house…picking up, lighting a candle, etc.  Moms, do you do these sweeps throughout your day too?

8:30 a.m.
I sit down with a cup of coffee, my bible, and this prayer journal for some quiet time.  I’m not typically good at journaling but I love that this book has a space for weekly highlights, what’s on your heart, prayers {as well as when they’ve been answered}.  It’s just what I need in 2020!

8:45 a.m.
Loved this reminder!

8:45 a.m.
Ebby Lee missed the weather forecast with highs of 97, but she looked awfully cute!  Her wide leg jeans are this pair and this is her top.

9:00 am.

9:30 a.m.
Heavy laundry day because I slacked over the weekend.

10:00 a.m.
For the most part, I’m letting Bowen be responsible for virtual learning.  I peek in on him from time to time but I’m not sitting beside him all day.  However, I do listen to him read so everyday we get cozy and read for 20-30 minutes.  We just started Captain Underpants and he’s loving it!

I think I messed my times up a little but a few pictures I took directly in Insta Stories so they’re MIA!  I went to a local boutique to grab a birthday gift and then we had Trader Joe’s Mini Beef Tacos for lunch.  My kids all like those and we paired them with fruit and yogurt.  They’re basically a little beef and cheese in the middle of a tortilla chip.  Who wouldn’t like that?

12:00 p.m.
Bowen and I throw the baseball everyday before or after lunch for 20-30 minutes.  Britt always comes out to play too!

1:00 p.m.
I got in some computer work!

2:00 p.m.
Britty and I sit down to work on the letter, “A”.  Yes, we did that in tap shoes because all good work happens in tap shoes.

2:30 p.m.
Coffee cup #3 was a necessity!

4:00 p.m.
Ebby Lee and I drove by to drop off a birthday gift for her friend.

We had these meatballs for dinner with sweet potato fries, broccoli, and corn for dinner around 5:15 p.m.

7:30 p.m.
I grabbed this cutie from volleyball practice and we drove over to Bowen’s 7:30 baseball game.

8:30 p.m.
Can you spot that cute third baseman?

9:15 p.m.
The baseball game was TIED at 15-15 with two outs, Bowen singled and one of his crazy fast teammates made it all the way home from second to win!  Super fun way to end a busy day!  Girls made it home first and we all showered quickly.

I’d say my kids typically go to bed around 9:00 every night so this was a later night than normal, but just an hour doesn’t seem to throw them off too much.  Britt took a nap the next day but everyone else was fine.

10:30 p.m.
By the time the boys got home, showered, and calmed down from that exciting game it was 10:30 p.m. before I made it to bed.

Hope you enjoyed a peek at our day!  Our days aren’t always like this!  Don’t worry…I have lazy days and busy days just like you!

    I'm so jealous that your gym is open!! NC still has gyms shut down (playgrounds too– don't even get me started on that!). Ugh, soon enough hopefully!

    Looks like a busy but wonderful day!
