Each day of February, we are to photograph our loved ones. It can be the same person throughout the month or different people each day. Even pets can be in the spotlight. Every day, Willette Photography gives us an assignment and then offers several options for sharing our snapshots with others.
Definitely, my photography strengths do not lie in capturing people well, so I hope this month will really help me become better at shooting portraits.
Here are my Day 1 and Day 2 shots:
One thing I love about homeschooling is that there is no morning rush. There are no lunches to be packed, no rushing around looking for something to wear...In fact, though I do have my children get dressed for the day, we do have occasions where we might school in our pajamas. This day was one of those days: it was snowing outside, and PJs just seemed the appropriate attire for school. It seemed the least I could do since the public school system enjoyed a snow day and we did not.
My two boys here are not only doing school in their PJs, but they are also enjoying another perk of homeschooling: They do not have to sit at a desk all day long. I do make them do some things at a table if glue is involved, or if the assignment demands extra careful attention, but often you'll find them on the couch, on the floor...or in a tent. They built this tent about a week ago and have enjoyed sleeping in it, playing in it...and completing their assignments in it.
This is my beautiful Alex. Of course, I am a biased parent. But she really is beautiful, isn't she? She is almost as tall as me and still has a good 4-5 years of growing left. Her feet are bigger than mine. So much for sharing shoes (though she does still steal my socks!). She is smart, compassionate, fun, silly, sweet.
She loves this hat. It has been a winter staple.
