This months blog theme was “Games”. Here is an image of youngest playing the Texas History Game her teacher set up..she gets extra credit for taking her picture at any historic Texas landmark holding her “Hi Teacher!” sign :) so over Spring Break we set out to play at the Birthplace of Texas.
The Meeting Room to Draft the Declaration of Texas Independence
The Declaration of Independence from Mexico
The Tree that saw the Whole Story!
Thanks for stopping by our “game”. Check out how Keli was involved in this month’s theme!
Although I’m behind I’m trying to catch up! The week 6 theme comes from Elton John’s Your Song:
“Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen”
Both my girls have beautiful, expressive eyes….definitely the sweetest I’ve ever seen :)
Oldest bought herself a new camera with her birthday money so she has been my companion on some recent photo walks :). Since I’m spending time explaining to her I am not really taking pictures myself, however today I decided to just use my cell phone as she was doing her thing…
It was a great reminder of the idea that the best camera is the one you have with you!
Here is a shot Oldest caught of the pup and I discussing why it would be a very bad idea to jump into the creek ;)
It is great to see Oldest grow in photography …. the pup appreciates the walk venues ….so it was a win for all involved:)
Been a little crazy around here, however I grabbed a quick cell shot as we walked the pup… Saturday morning soccer..sure brought back some memories!
Processed with watercolor and under painting to achieve this month theme of “Out of Focus”.
Thanks for stopping by, take a minute to travel around the circle to see how these talented ladies interpreted the theme!
No idea how this happened so fast..I feel like just yesterday she was asking for her toy Barbie keys…. to this year wanting a real car and getting ready for her learner’s permit!
She had a great birthday :)
The theme for The Photographer Within challenge comes from Lady Gaga this week….
Thanks to Oldest for donning her old pointe shoes to capture these images (not that it takes much arm twisting, I’ve discovered this is a sure way to get her in front of the camera….allow her to wear her pointe shoes! She adores ballet so much now that she is on pointe ….she actually WANTS me to take her picture!)
The February theme is “Noise”..something Youngest is an expert at :)
Thanks for stopping! Continue around the circle to see how the talented Jacqui captured NOISE!
This week’s lyrics are from the Rolling Stones Paint it Black
~“Black as night, black as coal.”~
Thanks for stopping by :)
This weeks theme comes from the JT Song Mirrors….
~“It’s like you’re my mirror, my mirror staring back at me.”~
