Another post for the wonderful KIDS WERE HERE PROJECT. The insanely large amount of rain that we have been receiving put me a bit behind schedule. I will keep it short and sweet and let Brenna’s touching quote do the talking.
“When I was first asked to be a part of this project, I was admittedly very excited for the group of photographers I’d be working with. They’re an amazingly talented group of women. I was also looking forward to documenting a new aspect of our lives, which I gave little (or no) attention to with the camera. Yet it is such a significant part of our everyday. These left-behind toys, the messes, the food, the strewn about clothes; somedays, I think they’re staring me in the face, laughing. You vacuumed? ha! You just emptied the sink? Too bad! The entry way has been cleared of shoe piles & coat mountains? Nope, not today! But a funny thing happened to me, with this photo project. I am now pausing more & taking more deep breaths. Do I still enjoy all these messes? If I’m being honest, not so much, but incorporating my photography into the daily disasters has given me a new perspective.” -Brenna Peterson
After we made a father’s day card for my husband using finger paints, I told my son to wash his hands. Hence the painting running down the wall. :O)
The big event for the month was that my 4 year old son lost his first tooth. He got his first tooth at 3 months so, apparently, losing his first at four isn’t unheard of but still shocking to his parents. I didn’t even know it was loose, which is why I guess I was so amazed. We think it fell out at the park but I didn’t realize it until later that day. Either way, it feels like he made a huge jump from being my baby to a full fledged kid. :O( Since we didn’t have the tooth, we wrote a letter to the tooth fairy…
Hop on over and see the images from the rest of the amazingly talented ladies in the group.

WOW! The color is amazing in all your photos!! I just posted my first ever set. http://www.inthemomentwith.com/blog/kids-were-here-ww-101/
Thank you so much Sarah. I am a big fan of color and so glad you are too. Loved checking out the remnants your boys leave around. My son has so many of the same toys. Isn’t it lovely to see all of the similarities we have in our houses. Keep recording those Kids Were Here memories!
