Sometimes growth can easily go unnoticed.

Sometimes growth can be significant to some and meaningless to others.

These were significant to me this week:

from buds to blossoms

from baby to big girl

It was a big week for Sarah:

  • first hair cut
  • first weekend without Mommy
  • first time saying NO!

I’m a little bit sad to see color week come to an end. It has been a good exercise in taking photos daily and posting (almost) daily. It has also been a good exercise in paying attention to my surroundings. The kids picked up on it right away and spent a lot of time giving me suggestions. For example:

“What color is tomorrow, Mommy?”


“Ummm (scanning the room), you could take a picture of Joshua’s flashlight!”

“I already did. For red day.”

“Oh. What about these? (holding up some scissors)”

Too bad today’s color wasn’t grey. Grey skies. Lots of rain. A chance of snow. Hello??? It is MAY!

If only there were batteries for this flashlight. It can even glow red.

Hmmm, this looks familiar. Same shot, different fruit.

Given the fact that orange seems to be my current favorite color, you’d think I would have been quicker on the draw with posting. Here’s what I found around the house:

I decided to exclude items that I have knit or sewn lately, as that would have been too much like shooting fish in a barrel.
