Two weeks from today we head back to school… which leaves me feeling #alloftheemotions . We’re starting our 5th year of home school, WOW doesn’t seem to summarize exactly how shocked I feel over that, and I will be taking our 6th year of back to school photos.
The past 6 years of photos hold some very precious memories. Memories that have all taken place at this house, the home where so many of their childhood firsts happened. As we get ready to head back to school one last time in this house, I may be a teensy bit more sentimental than usual.
The beginning of July was the beginning of another photo challenge. I’ve really enjoyed co-hosting photo challenges with Stephanie over the past several months. 14 Days of Summer was the 3rd one we’ve put together, so far, for 2017. After playing around with formats, we decided that the mini challenges are by far a favorite. Two weeks is a MUCH easier time commitment than an entire month and it seems to avoid people getting burnt out. So we put our brains together and came up with this.
This was by far my favorite photo challenge, ever. Maybe it is my love of summer, the prompts, or taking most of the photos with my new IPhone. Whatever it was, for the very first time in my photo challenge history, I was sad that it was over.
I had so much fun linking up for 10 on the 10th last month that I decided to join again for July. This past Monday was my first day of solo parenting. Russ left before 6:00 am. to hop on a plan and head to Rochester for a business trip. To make the day go by quickly we kept ourselves distracted by doing ALL the things. It was the perfect way to pass the day and the perfect way to wear the girls out! Now that they are older it’s a little more work to get them good and tired.
I shared what we were up to on IG stories throughout the day, but today I am going to do a little recap.
One of my favorite ways to document our life and the fun we have is with photos. Over the years I’ve learned that I either do a really great job with this, or a really bad one. When it comes to me and photography, there is just no in between. I take #allthephotos or none.
Recently I started sharing Instagram stories. (Why did it take me so long to get on the IG story bus?!) (Are you following me on Instagram, if not come fix that, m’kay) (How long could I talk in parentheses before it got weird?) (What was I talking about anyways…) However, since I started sharing Instagram stories, my Instagram photos have become nearly non-existent 😳 . So in hopes of capturing a few frame worthy summer memories, and getting back on track with sharing those photos, how about a mini photo challenge?!
Springtime has officially began!
The trees are budding, the sun is shining and those warm rain showers have finally made their way to Southwest Missouri. Although parts of me find it hard to believe, I think winter really is officially over.
With all things spring on the brain it is the perfect time to try my luck on hosting (and completing 😛 ) another photo challenge. Once again I am teaming up with Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me to bring you a ‘Spring Fling’ photo challenge. We tried to choose prompts that wouldn’t stink. You’ve all seen those challenges right?! We put our heads together and feel like we came up with a really great list.
