The Jacksons Weekly | 8.19.19


AROUND THE HOUSE: These last few weeks have been the most trying weeks I’ve had in a long time. The amount I have accomplished has been crazy yet there is still so much to do. Each week I have been trying to do at least one fun thing to keep myself sane and this week it was to make jam with my grandma. 

Her and I use to make jelly in the summertime when I was a kid. Now that she has had her stroke, jam making looks a little bit different. This time we met at my house and I did most of the work while she coached me. Silly me forgot to get a photo of the two of us making the jam but whether I have a photo or not, I memory of the event will far outweigh the photo this time.

PS: There were the berries I picked with her a few weeks back. 🙂 


JACKSON SIGNATURE PHOTOGRAPHY: Kaia FINALLY had her senior portrait session this week!!! I swear we kept picking the most crazy weather days. They say the third time is a charm and they were right! We found some super cute roadside spots from a lake to a sunflower field. 

LITTLE MISS CAROLINE: I know, this is the only reason you even read this blog isn’t it. 😉 My little ham. I asked her to pose the she flopped over. I had to sit her back up for the other one. 

Our new porch furniture arrived this week so Caroline got to work helping daddy put it together. She is quite intuitive! This girl knew right where to place the screws and what to do to tighten them. Now getting them tightened was another story but she is only 17 months old! 

The veggie eating saga continues around here. Caroline has decided she no longer wants to eat her veggies BUT with week the bean started producing and she LOVES them. The only struggle is getting her to stop sharing with her dog. 😮 

What’s a Saturday off if you don’t go to the Ligonier Farmers Market with your mini BFF? These two took a little break from their market shopping to smell the flowers and enjoy some shade. 

I hope you all had a great weekend!
