These Days

We are moving so swiftly through these days here in the new year, at times it seems hard to catch a breath.  I find that more than ever I am struggling with finding a solid rhythm that allows ample time for school, work, blog, housework and the like.  We are happy in all of this and it feels as though things are slowly starting to fall into place.
That sweet hubs of mine got me a new camera, it's so amazing and I have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to use it!  I've found some great tutorials on line and hopefully before long I'll feel confident with my shots.  Here are some that I've been taking these days:
cheering on her brother at a basketball game

begging me to stop taking pictures

Corey loves having his dad coach

some papa snuggle time

capturing the action during a basketball game has proved to be quite tough

snowshoeing during a January thaw

figuring out the macro lens
I really want to get better at catching the action when the kids are at their various sporting/dancing/singing/who-knows-what-else events which of course seems to be the most challenging.

We are watching out the window as the snow falls here on this chilly afternoon, thank goodness because this boy of mine was pretty sad with all the melting of snow lately.  I'm hoping for some more snow shoeing and generally enjoying some time outside with my sweet family this weekend.


  1. Congrats on the new camera! How exciting! I'm sure you will be a pro at action shots in no time.

  2. A new camera! Your wish came true! :) Love that shot of beautiful smiling Molly!
    Have fun with the macro - that's my favourite thing to play with.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear comments and try to answer any questions so feel free to tell me what's on your mind!
