July 2013 – Kids Were Here

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.
