5 on the 5th | july 2014

I obviously did not look in my Filofax to realize that Saturday was the 5th of the month and so yesterday I improvised and took 5 photos on the 6th. The girls were at Nana's swimming, which is typical for a summer Sunday and, actually, it was pretty typical for us to be working on some sort of home improvement project as well.

a monthly photo re-cap, occurring on the 5th of each month, documenting 5 everyday, extraordinarily ordinary moments in our family's life

What is 5 on the 5th?

5 on the 5th is a project where I capture our family's extraordinarily ordinary everyday moments on the 5th day of each month. It's based on the infamous 12 on the 12th photo project we've all heard of...but I changed it up knowing that I wouldn't take the time or remember to take 12 photos each month,.

I chose the number 5, since we have 5 family members.

I use my iPhone 5s to take my photos and post to Instagram throughout the day, tagging the photos with #5onthe5th. If you do a search, you'll see that there are other IG'ers documenting their everyday moments right along with me each 5th day of the month.

I then post our 5 photos here on the blog, but most people don't. I just like to because then I have a permanent record of what I've documented each and every month.

2  |  Onward. Even though I'm never in "working" photos, I'm right alongside him. Okay, he does all the heavy lifting and figuring and cutting, but we make a good team.

3  |  Time for an ice cream break. Thankfully, the temperature has been kind to us thus far and the humidity is very low. But, it's still time for a break!

4  |  Finished! At least with this side. Edge trimming needs to go up, replace the steel door with the wood door with glass panes {that will need to be sanded and stained} and then prime and paint the siding. Oh, and then we can finish the plant installation. Thanks Mr. wRight, you're awesome!

5  |  A Mad Men marathon. In bed. Seems perfect after a tiring day. All of our favorite shows are on summer break, so we're looking into new shows to watch until the Fall premieres. This one is my choice and we're on Season 4. Next round, Gordon gets to choose.
