Project 366 Rewind - July 30, 2012

Monday, July 30, 2012

So here we are, marching off into August already. Are you ready for back to school?  We really school all year, but this summer we've taken it pretty easy. I'm not sure I'm ready for the hectic pace of homeschooling and all the extra curricular activities that go with it. This year promises to be especially busy with my oldest playing in the advanced soccer league, plus my other kids in rec soccer, girl scouts, PE, and the hubs in grad school. I may even be going back to school too. It all makes my head spin. I really need to get uber-organized so I don't burn out in the first month.

I'm sure we'll manage, but I'd really like to soak up some more summer fun first! We have hardly even been swimming this year. We really need to  get busy with some pool and beach days before they slip away. What about you? What's still on your summer to do list?

Here's my look back at last week. 
This a shot of Little Miss waking up from nap time. 

We love to venture down to the river in our neighborhood to explore. 
This time of year, the blue crabs are really active.

Just hanging out while daddy grills our dinner. Her big hair cracks me up. 

I'm on a quest to capture the perfect water drop. You'll probably be seeing more of these.

I also played with backlighting. That needs more work as well, but I do love that glowing light.

And this girl is killing me, growing up so fast!

This one I captured for the Scavenger Hunt prompt "eyelashes". I just never got all my prompts together. Lazy me...

Here's my July favorite:

 What have you been up to?

The sun beans and flares you capture are amazing!! An here in New England, we still have a little over a month until school starts - so these back to school ads are just taunting us!

Man you're good! I can't believe all the different techniques you've learned since you started developing this hobby!

Mary Gene Atwood said...

Some gorgeous images here! Love so many of them. Joining you from proj rewind.

Wow, you will be busy! No school here, but even we haven't had enough lake days! I love the water droplet. Those are hard to get.

Gina Kleinworth said...

Oh my how big she is getting! I'm so glad you picked that one as your favorite- I love it so much!

Kim Cunningham said...

I love the backlit one! So wonderful. Your images are really inspiring.

MixedMolly said...

Water drops are on my photo bucket list :-) love the one you picked for your favorite.

Sarah Halstead said...

WOW!! I love these. Gorgeous. That water drop is great!! Your kids are so adorable!!

Kim said...

These are all so great! I love Little Man's eyelashes shot. It may be my favorite. I know how hard it is to capture boys and "catch" them where it reflects them. Big girl is getting soooo big. Love the water drop.
I am so excited about you going to school. So many of us are self taught. Reading blogs, books, and the occasional workshop or seminar is all we get. So enjoy it and embrace it. I would take the classes in a heartbeat.

What great pictures in this post! I have to agree that the last shot is fantastic! Love the little one's bed head and your older girl is just beautiful (as always). Love her dress :o)

Liz said...

All such stunning images, Melissa!!
Your children are gorgeous & I love the way you capture moments with them.
