So...today while Snug was working on writing his name and such I decided to try shooting in manual (this picture wasn't, it was in "camera does everything for me" mode. I am planning on sending him to public kindergarten in the fall, but they have a really awful schedule this next school year in which he'll attend a fulll 88 days. I'm not terrible excited about that, so on the days he doesn't go I'll be homeschooling him. We've already begun so he is used to working at the table by himself while everyone else is doing their own thing.
So I began shooting. I deleted lots, but even though this one was too dark, I still liked it.
And then as I was working on getting my settings correct, he decided I needed a silly picture.
Ah!!! That's better. I think all the settings are in order. Too bad it took me like 40 pictures to get it.
Nope too much. My shutter speed was too slow and let in too much light.
And then on accident I hit my little dial thing (that's the technical term I believe) and my shutter speed was too fast and didn't let in enough light.
And then it was back to balanced. And he was back to work.
Oh, Someone else was doing schoolwork...er...chewing on a Sharpie.
And someone else enjoys posing for a picture.
So a big thank-you to my two willing participants this afternoon. I appreciate their willingness to sit still(ish) and smile.
Oh, and this is one of the things Snug was working on. He was drawing things and then I had to guess what it was. You have an astronaut, his space rocks, a balloon, a # sign (I showed him how to do that earlier and he really likes it, some random letters (i, m, l) and his sounded out word "astronot". We said it very slowly together and he wrote the sounds he heard. I was kinda proud :o)
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
