Kids Were Here - August 2014

Here is another installment of kids were here.  I have been feeling a bit melancholy these past couple weeks thinking about him growing up one day so I am so happy to be doing these images so I can remember bits of him when he was smaller. 
Remember to go to the talented Jenn's site to continue the blog hop.

July Kids Were Here

And yet another installment of Kids Were Here.  7 months into this, can you believe it!  When you are done looking at these pics, please look at the lovely and talented Erica's blog.

My son and husband made a giant robot with large legos.  It is almost as tall as my son.  He won't let me take it down.

Friends can be found throughout the house.

My son likes to be warm - sweating even.  So this winter hat is awaiting times when he decides his head is too cold in the 90 degree weather at our house.

The next stop is Lisa King's wonderful photos.  She is so talented and has grown so much as a photographer since I have known her.  I wish I could be as talented.

Kids Were Here - April 2014

Another month of kids were here.  Can't believe we are 4 months into the year already!  For people who haven't seen what this is about yet, I am part of a group of women who are taking pictures of things our kids have left behind that help us know that kids live in our homes.  Possibly things that annoy us now, but that will be missed when they are older.  Here are mine and afterward, you can check out Kelly's images.  She is a great photographer who tells wonderful stories with her images.  I wish I was in her area so she could do some photos of my family.

Kind of hard to do yoga when your mat is covered with legos.  This took him 5 seconds to do.
More legos

We love to read and go to the library every other week.

Attempt at a real face

I receive a photography magazine in the mail every couple months.  The image on the front of the magazine I got last intrigued me.  I think she is beautiful and I really wanted to get a chance to draw her. I waited awhile to attempt it because it intimidated me, but I finally attempted it last night.  I couldn't get the colors quite right, and was pretty sad about that because I think her skin color is wonderful. I was pretty happy with how the face turned out overall.  Much better than others I have tried - and a big improvement from the first face I tried years ago.

Here is the original, and my version.

And here is one of my first face attempts done on October 14, 2012.  I've come a long way in a year and a half.  Quite a way to go, but I am very happy with my progress.

March 2014 Kids were Here

This is the third month in our installments of "kids were here."  Myself and a group of wonderful ladies are doing a project where once a month we post pictures that show evidence that there are children in our homes.  The idea is that we are capturing the transience of childhood.  Before we know it, they will be grown and gone and all their little things will no longer be under foot.  It's a way to remember to cherish them while we have them under our roofs. I have three photos today.  I often have little toys (or items of clothing) in odd places throughout the house, left wherever my son decided he was done playing with them.  When you are done viewing my photos, you can check out the talented Shauna's blog where she has photos of her son (as well as beautiful photos she does for others).
