Life Through My Lens Thursday — Week 13

Last time on Life Through My Lens Thursday, we left off with Sally talking to Linus.  To check out what happened before in this series, check out Week 10, and Week 11! Here is the conclusion of this soap opera! *** Everyone was following Linus as he was running away from his friends.  But right when he was going to tell it all to Snoopy, Sally wanted the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! Linus explained that he cooked an awesome dinner and he wanted to share it with his best friends, but he didn’t know if Bell, and Cinderella knew they were BOTH his best friend. Sally was starting to get sad, because she thought she held a special place in his heart. Just when Sally was going to tell Linus how she felt, he explained to everyone that he made the special meal to share with his friends, because he wanted to do something nice for Sally, and he wasn’t sure if she was going to like it! “Awww” Sally said, “You didn’t have to go through all of this for me!  Let us all try it together!” Excited to have a special dinner with all his friends,  he started to set the table. Looking at his table, he realized that he didn’t make enough, so he went back into the kitchen and quickly cooked more.  To his amazement, with the extra practice he’s had, the dish came out better than the first time! He was now ready to present it to his friends! They all stood together enjoying the special meal that he made,...

Wordless Wednesday: April

  Yesterday was April 1st, so to celebrate it, we stepped outside and enjoyed the sun. No tricking each other. No jokes on each other. Just pure fun. I held Little Z’s hand while Zee told me all about her picnic plans–because according to her:”We have to have a picnic now that it’s Spring.” On this day, she wanted to wear leg warmers with her dress. The shoes are her absolute favorite. She promises to wear them when ever she can. (I’m also now on the hunt for a pair of similar shoes, since she’s outgrowing these). But yesterday seemed special. Yesterday was first day of April, and hopefully, the first day of Spring for us. I’m looking forward to brighter skies, happy faces, and more smiles. Did you do anything special on April 1st?  ...

Week Through My Lens — Week 12

Life Through My Lens Thursday Photography Challenge is my take on a Project 52.  I chose one object – Linus – and decided to photograph him using different themes and techniques.  Other times, I’ll make a story out of the photographs that I take.  To see the beginning of my challenge, start here.   This week for Life Through My Lens Thursday, I’m going to scale back for a moment.  I’ve been in the middle of: Making changes to my blog (I missed my old theme so I reactivated it, and now tweaking it). Getting another blog off the ground to document my homeschool journey. Running around to different appointments. I’ll get into this with my Friday post among other things. Also, I did not forget where I left us last week with his mini soap opera!  This will continue next week, as I wrap up his drama filled series. For now, I will leave you a picture of Linus.    ...

Life Through My Lens — Week 11

Last week, we left off with Linus running away from his two friends, and not sure what to say to either one of them if they caught up to him. But in his time of running, he didn’t know the craziness he was creating….let’s see what happens.

Walking With Blocks

{I used an overlay to give this photo some texture or grit, and I set the opacity to about 30% so that it wasn’t in your face grit} About the Photo— I have undertaken a project in our home that has managed to turn this place up side down! Since LittleZ started to walk, and became more sure of himself, I wanted to make sure that he would be safe in doing so. After finally making some changes for him and Zee to play, while opening up their space, I set him down. The blocks in the toy chest was the first thing he reached for. He can’t build with these yet (that’s why we bought mega blocks for him hahaha) but he loves to hand the pieces over to his sister so that she can do something with it. One of the many times of my two children playing with each other. So this odd shape of a block was made with love, from my oldest to my youngest. (insert aaawwww moment 😉 ) From the time my daughter was born, I wondered how she would be with an older sibling. Will she be gentle with them as I have been gentle with her? Do I have to explain love at every moment, or will she simply feel it because it is what she knows? Would she comfort them, as I comfort her when she cries? Through her actions, she has shown me that she has learned all along. She’s learned comfort, love, understanding—even in it’s simplest forms she learned and is continuing to learn. When I look at my children...
