Welcome to this month’s edition of the “Life Story Series.”
If you’re new or you’ve missed the previous posts, click here to take a look: Life Stories: The Archive.
In case you need a refresher, “Life Story Series” is a
12 month personal project that myself and a group of very talented photographers are participating in. It shows just a little glimpse into our daily lives. It’s a way for us to capture our memories creatively – just us. It’s not about the perfect shot, it’s not about ideal lighting – it’s about capturing those little moments that make our lives ours – the detail, the laughter, the fun, the feeling.
At the end of this post you’ll find links to my photographer friends that’s playing along. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or wine), click through and enjoy!
Once again, this month comes to you a little late, but for a good reason. My babies are all wrapping up their school year – which means it’s CRAZY busy with field trips, field days, special activities and more. And I knew I wanted to capture their special days (and share them!), so this had to wait. That and mom life has me a little busy so I don’t always take a lot of time to upload & edit….because I like to sleep at night (Just keepin’ it real!)
Anyway…without further ado here’s a gigantic overshare of the last few weeks. School’s almost out for summer!!!
First – we’ve been spending some school nights outside! This is seriously my favorite time of year – they play, and are now old enough to not need constant intervention. They can pull their bin of outside toys out themselves and the husband and I can talk while he grills. PERFECTION!
Sometimes they even work together as a team…nicely!Sometimes the bloopers are the best part. He actually hit this one, haha.The girls had a special field trip to the Beardsley Zoo. I was super excited because DC LOVES penguins and the just opened a penguin exhibit for the summer! Perfect timing! And luckily, I got to chaperone for her classI got to spy on Scooter a bit too.In her glory!There was a Books for Bunnies Event at our library – the kids got to read to a bunny! They absolutely loved it (side note: I did too.)Kudos to this bunny owner. He was so patient and attentive as the kids all read to the bunny and even complimented their ability.He wanted to make sure he showed the bunny the pictures, hehe.That same night, gymnastics wrapped up.And then she came home missing a tooth! And I chaperoned Scooter’s trip to the VO-AG Fair at Lyman Hall. LOVE this fair! They do a great job – I’ll miss going with the kids when they outgrow it.The next day this little guy had his turn to go.And then it was Field Day!My boy has some lungs on him. Here he is screaming “NINE!” in “What time is it Mr. Fox?”This is what she does when she realizes I have a camera pointed at her.The End.
