15 Sep Light-Hearted Best Shots
Posted at 00:00h in Uncategorized 33 Comments
This has been a tough week on the kids. Of course, I am in full celebration mode of having my time back-sorry, but mama needs her time-but for them, it’s been an overload of new things; people, places, schedules, things to remember, homework to do, etc. Both girls, back to school all day everyday meant a roller coaster of emotions from excitement and enthusiasm to hesitation and melt-downs. Total brain over-load.
This weekend we just needed a little levity and what better place than our our backyard? Here’s how my kids blew off a little steam from the pressure-cooker that is the first week of school.
How did you capture this past week? Hopefully you had a little fun while you were at it. Do share!

We went to the park, too, but instead of posting a photo of the kids I went with my other favorite: weird flowers!

Work has been so busy that I had to go back a few weeks to find a picture. I hope to rectify that soon, though.

Beautiful shots of your children! I just love seeing happy children. We have had a lot of rain here these past few weeks, but I did manage to catch my todd and Jess outdoors in a tranquil moment of relaxation and repose:
