So this wonderful idea was introduced to me in Hope's Disney Pre-trip report about taking pictures of things that are in the shape of letters to make a word, so I thought I would mess around briefly tonight and see what I came up with. Granted, I was just in my back yard, not Walt Disney World, so I struggled a bit to see letters in the things all around me. I'm not sure if this will be harder or easier in WDW, but I would love to take a bunch of shots that make the word "CHERISH", "VACATION", "FREEDOM", or "DISNEY" when we finally make it back there next fall...

Karen is the coolest mom evah! She had a FABULOUS party for the girls tonight for the premiere of Camp Rock 2. The girls had a blast and we had lots of photo ops. (Though I missed a few of those taking Jace to his sleepover!)

Camp Rock 2!

Tonight we had a Camp Rock2 movie premier party. It was (is...still a few girls here!) fun and the girls seemed to enjoy themselves! I have two pictures. One b/c it's hilarious and I loved all the shots I got when the girls let me take a *Rockin'* picture of them.

The second is the prettiest shot I got tonight when the girls were making collages.

I had a couple good shots I went back and forth on choosing for today! In the end, I picked this one b/c I loved the lines and artistic look.

Not posting tonight, I hurt my knee today and I thought I might pick up the camera and just take a quick shot of something, but the battery is motivation to charge it tonight. I'll post two tomorrow or something! LOL

I admit it, I did drag Karen down the Disney road... but to be fair she drug me there first! I spent the day finalizing some plans for our upcoming trip- Karen helped in person yesterday and through email today. I don't know how I would have planned this trip without her! <3

and thanks to Hope, my mind has been on this all day today!

PJ Day

It's been a long time since I didn't have a petsit, lesson, grocery store, or homeschool event to go to and I can't see another day for most of September that I will get again, so I stayed in my pjs. Hope came over and we chatted away the afternoon, I quickly realized why she got her pic posted so early! After Hope left and we had dinner, we popped in the Netflix that arrived, Colonial House, which we watched years ago and wanted to re-watch. It was a great evening, but I realized 5 minutes ago that I hadn't picked up the camera, so you get my lazy-day-pj-day-off-netflix-watching-evening shot!

They guy Robbie carpools with left his bike parked in our driveway today. If that's not an invitation to take pictures I don't know what is!!

It's a big day in our house! About eight months ago Kya started sleeping in our room. We don't really know why or what triggered it but at around the same time she also stopped sleeping over with friends. We didn't worry too much because she seemed fine otherwise and didn't think it was caused by anything- she just knew she felt more comfortable in our room so that's what we did. Today she asked if we could set up the bunk bed that was in the basement and move her mattress from our room onto the top bunk! We worked all afternoon to rearrange and make room for the bed. She's planning to sleep up top and is using the bottom for storage (she has waaay to much stuff in her room but that's another story). I'm gappy she's feeling like trying this out but I must admit that I felt a little sad when she was in her room with the door closed and music up loud. As much as I want her to be independent I can't help but feel a pang as she grows up.

September's coming...

It's still warm, but I can see fall coming in the plants and flowers when I go out to shoot.
