But now I am excited to watch him explore being in front of the lens a bit. I think it will be cool to go back and see what the year held for each of us and how we interpret each week. Here is his first.
There is a lot of beard there as last week he spent most of it curled into a wretched ball, battling whatever bug the boys brought home this week from Kiddie Care at the gym. I like it. Not the bugs, the beard.
And mine for the week. Hiking with the boys on a brisk Monday morning.
Tried a few timed shots, but I need some practice on the whole focus thing with the SLR. The hike was great, the boys and I conquered a switchback I once used to bomb on my mountain bike. But I think I like this just as much.
A little funny story. I ditched our double BOB at the base of the switchback to let the boys out to hike. Well, a quarter of the way up I started to hear voices from an upper trail, shouting "Are you okay? Do you need help?". The local hiking club was out in force and had spotted the abandoned BOB and must have thought we were in trouble. I shouted back that we were fine and a few minutes later emerged from the trees to see a bunch of seniors gaping at me for hiking with toddlers. Whatever. They have to learn somehow, right? But I loved their concern. Good folks round here.
Now, back to the boys, some seed planting and completion of a few projects I have been slowly working on.
I joined this challenge and have a specific project I want to complete for January, before the heat hits us again. Sewing has been a little slow, but I think I am getting my rhythm back at the machine. We will see.
