It's Friday, and I'm looking back at another week of Project 365 images. When I started my first 365 last year, I started it with the idea of growth in mind. I like a good challenge. Then I started the project again in 2015, in part because it felt weird not to continue it, but also to continue my challenge and growth.
Somewhere along the way... that shifted.
It shifted from just a personal challenge to a family-based one. It shifted to capturing memories being more important than the physical act of grabbing the camera. It shifted to the little fingers that pick those unripe berries, and the billion and a half questions a five year old can ask. And ask again, and again. It shifted to what I want the kids to see of us, our lives, and how much they are loved by us and their entire family.
I'm pretty okay with that.
Don't forget to head over to Charming Hearts Photography next to see her memory filled week, too. Her image of the little pink hat reminds me of small items of my kids' that I have tucked away.
My husband never understands why I shoot across the truck at him, but we make a pretty good road trip team.
Helping with the moving of a tree, complete with the frog watering can that was a favorite toy while we visited.
I think I've figured out why my windows always look like they do.
We visited an a cool museum, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery. I've been hearing everything he learned about canned salmon for the better part of a week.
A little morning Suduko with Grandpa.
As we left for home, the sun was casting its gorgeous glow across the bits of fog and the fields that were flying by. Driving across the country with small kids aren't always the easiest, but it's always images like this that I remember instead of the chaos that comes when they're ready to be done travelling.
In the two year old mind, it's better to eat the blueberries while they're still green than to have to wait for them to be ripe.
Stirring his yogurt as fast as he can. It's the little joys in life, right?
They asked if they could sleep under the table in the hammocks I tied up for them. If only I could fit, too.
The strawberries have slowed a bit in the last week, but there are still some to enjoy.
Don't forget to head over to Charming Hearts Photography and follow around the circle!
