Today was Kayleigh's class trip to the Pumpkin Patch! It was really fun, and neat to spend time with just Kayleigh. That is rare lately!

Day TWO! Okay, so it's not so much people, but it sums up our day pretty well!

John worked his first night shift last night, so the kids & I spent the morning out to let him catch up on sleep. We drove around this morning looking for a good place to take some fall pictures, but the kids were too cold to get out, lol. Story of my life! :)

We dropped Kayleigh off at school, and came home & lounged around the rest of the day. We watched The Incredibles, had some spaghetti for dinner, and it's getting verrrry close to bedtime!

BTW, you can click on the pictures to see them bigger. :)

Hey there! Welcome to my newest project! If you haven't already read about the 365 Project, take a looksie HERE. Basically, you take a photo a day for one year, & post it somewhere online.

My other blog has been lagging lately because I just don't really have the time or substance to keep up with it right now. I do update our Picasa Albums almost daily, though.... which lead me to this project.

My plan for the 365 is to *hopefully get one in of each kid daily & maybe even me sometimes, that i do a little more editing than usual (or none at all!) on. Basically I want to step up my usual snaps and push myself a little further ... I'd love to have a record of my photography growth a year from now, and a neat "journal" of our daily life.

In honor of Kayleigh's class trip to the pumpkin patch Thursday (and my first time ever leaving Norah for more than an hour), I give you... day one!

I'm sure it will take me the next 3 days to get one of these suckers full enough for the 6 hours I'll be gone.

still trying to get a good one of all three.
