Emily has been a cheereading for 6 months now (since April), participated in 2 camps, learned a ton of cheers and dances and this weekend, started performing.
August was a HOT month, a VERY HOT month. So we spent a lot of time inside, heading out in the early morning to play.
July was not a hugely photographed month. We laid low most of the month, playing outside, playing inside. It felt like we were always busy but it also somehow felt like we had time to do nothing. Emily saw her first real live nighttime fireworks, we spend more time grilling than ever, and we did a ton of crafts, as always…
We did a lot in June! I don’t think I realized how much until I sat down to document it.
For as long as I can remember I have wanted two things in terms of land/gardening/etc. Chickens and Roses. This weekend was the weekend of dreams coming true.
The past few weeks have photographically dramatic. My camera broke. I was beside myself and flipping out. I LOVE this camera. (OK, I love any non simple point and shoot camera). I have used Canon and they are ok. I am not a huge fan of Nikon. This is a Sony and FABULOUS! I love the lenses. I love the feel in my hand. I love how much control I have over settings. And it broke. And Google said it was done for good. AND I FIXED IT MYSELF! And nearly fainted with relief! So while Emily was at Mary Poppins with her Daisy troop, I gathered the twins for a camera testing photo shoot. The camera works! Here are the results.
Emily had a scheduled 2 hour delayed start to school today, so we dropped the twins at preschool and headed to the beach.
