This Is Our Life - A 52 Week Lifestyle Photo Project by Paint the Moon Photoshop Actions         AND  52 Week Project Photo Paint the Moon Photoshop Actions PSE

This is a project a fellow photographer encouraged me to do. I think it is going to be fun. I may miss a week here or there, but that's ok. I'm hoping it will challenge my creativity.

The bold words under each week is the theme Paint the Moon challenges you to capture. Feel free to join in the fun with me by clicking on one of the icons at the top of the page.

Finding the Light

1937 Ford PU

I took images all week trying to find the perfect photo to submit for "Finding the Light". I had several good ones of the girls, and one of flowers. There was good light in the photos, just not L I G H T ! This truck was at my niece and sister-in-law's birthday party yesterday. I couldn't resist taking some shots of this beauty. I knew right away this would be my submission for the week. I didn't ask the owner permission to take pictures of it, but he seemed pleased that I did. He gave me his email so I could send him the photos. He also gave me permission to use it here. Thanks Kirk Jackson, you made my day. What a cool truck!

Week 5 "Let's Do 52"

Creatures

This momma gets the heebie jeebies from trying to catch lizards. Thankfully Paul was awake to catch it. He worked so hard his little cheeks turned red. He is AWESOME!

Good Morning

Strength

Unfortunately our disposal went out this week. Fortunately I have a husband that has strength, in so many ways, and was able to fix it.

addendum:

The dishwasher wouldn't drain the next day. $146 later the GE repair man taught us that Denis didn't pull the plug where the dishwasher drains out of the disposal. I wonder what it would have cost to have someone install the disposal to begin with. Hmmm.

Week 7 "This is our Life"

Negative Space...it's a positive

We were at a family crawfish boil when Charlie grabbed me to "come on" mommy. I noticed her little hand gripping my fingers so tightly. I'm so glad I had my camera on me so I could catch this moment of my little one needing me. I know that one day she won't truly need me, but I hope that she'll still want me.

Week 7 "Let's Do 52"

Connected

I got to spend 20 minutes alone with Paul playing Blokus. Not only do you connect in the game, but this was a great "connection" for both of us!

Week 9 "This is our Life"

Out of the Shadows

We were supposed to focus on where light meets shadows to create an image with more emotion. I took this last night in the hallway upstairs. The hallway light was off. My bedroom, Paul's bedroom, and the bathroom light were all on to provide some light. Paul is sitting right by the bathroom door to cast light onto the left side of his face. I did have to position him how I wanted, but then just told him to play his guitar. Sweet cooperative boy. What a great age.

Yummy

Riley made her baby sister this awesome cake for her first birthday. It is so adorable I'd force myself to eat it if she asked me to.

Week 10 "This is our Life"

Changes

This little boy has shown a significant improvement in his drawings in the last few weeks. This one is my favorite because it is a whole scene. He really thought it out. I especially love how his rockets have distinctive parts. Notice how he gave his rockets way more attention than his person.

Play

"play is essential to human development"

~ Child Life Council evidence based practice summary ~

This little one plays "kitchen stuff" all day every day. Oh, let's not forget "Nanny's baby," Victoria. Check out the VERY old paper plates. Charlie spent the night with Mae Mae a few weeks ago and came home with those. She has played with them non-stop. They even go places with us.

Week 11 "Let's do 52"

Anticipation

We can't wait for our spring garden to grow! Denis worked so hard all week extending/building up our garden from last year. 

***************************************************************************************************************************************

Week 12 "This is our Life"

Emotive

drawing out or evoking emotion

My kid's version of resurrection eggs. Don't ever let someone tell you that you don't make a difference or that you can't make a difference. Look at the difference Jesus (one person) made in his very short life. 

FYI: Donkey, coins, cup, praying hands, whip, crown of thorns, nails on the cross, dice, spear, linen cloth, rock, empty.

Week 13 "This is our Life"

Motion

We were dropping off books at the library while I was discussing my theme for the week with Denis. It was Friday and I still didn't have what I wanted. I described this to him and surprisingly he was willing to try it. He doesn't like to be behind or in front of the camera, but he did both for me Friday night. 

I had to post both of these because there are things I like about both and things I do not.

I do NOT like that Denis chopped my feet off.

I DO like that you can clearly see all four kids.

I DO like that Camille is content doing her own thing.

I do NOT like that you can barely see Paul.

Content

My yard boys worn out and content being together while Charlie dug into her Easter basket from her Nanny.

Week 15 "This is our Life"

First

First time to officially do school work. I've thankfully never had to send my kids to daycare or preschool. Paul starts kindergarten in the fall and I don't feel like he's quite ready. So we are working on some things at home to make sure he is ready in August. He is actually enjoying himself.

To sleep or not to sleep

My sweet man was trying to let me sleep in. Definitely NOT possible with all of this excitement going on outside. I was happy to get up and join the fun!

Triple

She played with these dominos for hours. The sound they make when hitting the tile floor is very entertaining to her. She also loves the way they fit in her hands so perfectly.
