we practice

We’ve been enjoying some awesome summer weather this week, with blue skies and high temperatures.   I guess “mild” temperatures would be more ideal for a “perfect” day, but for me, summer is all about the heat.  If it’s not hot, it doesn’t feel like summer.  So I welcome the high temperatures.

Of course the heat isn’t always such a great thing when you have practice in the middle of the day.  Thankfully, kids don’t seem to mind it much.  Any chance to get outside and play with friends, they take.  Heat and all.
And practice for them means a little park time for the rest of us – where we do a little practicing of our own.
We practice swinging.

We practice digging.
We practice collecting.
And  tossing what we’ve collected.

We practice laughing and enjoying one another’s company.

These two need plenty of practice in this ~ they argue waaaay more than they get along!  Which is what makes this photo so fabulous ~ a rare moment in time – captured! 

We practicing making wild and crazy hair.

And while the kids are doing all their practicing, I’m doing a little of my own behind  the camera… always trying to take better pictures.  Lucky for me I have  more than enough models to work with!
Love this shot of Ari.  I’m wondering what thoughts were running through her three-year-old mind at the time?

    Katrina –

    These pictures are SO stunning! (I’m sure it helps that you have such cute models!) What kind of camera do you have? I am currently in the hunt for a new one (and by that I mean saving my pennies and trying to figure out which one to buy!). I’d love any advice!

    Have a great day!

    Love your blog and I’m so happy I found you from the hop. Nine kids? Awesome. (I’m a mom of 6)
    You have a beautiful family.
