Week in the Life: Mon, Tues, Wed

Ok this project is harder than it sounds! I forget to take the camera with me or forget to use it most of the time and am continually behind on taking notes. Not only that but when I do remember it, it takes up a ton of time. Sheesh! I'm not exactly frustrated with the project or how it's going, just surprised that it's

Some things I'm learning
-I'm still drawn to taking just cute shots of the kids instead of documenting myself/my life as I go
-need to make LOTS more use of the self-timer
-need to get other people behind the camera
-need to concentrate on getting myself in the photos
-should have put more thought into how I would go about this and exactly what I wanted to capture
-need to work time into the day at regular say 2 hour intervals to document. I'm forgetting way too much of what goes on throughout the day
-part of what makes taking photos hard is that this week feels TOO NORMAL. Too boring. Next time I should try for one with more events? Or maybe just be content with taking photos of myself sitting on the couch reading lol
-*there is a huge learning curve for this sort of thing. The first time is a huge learning experience. I think I will still be glad I did it in the end but will just plan on "next time" working out so much better.

Some of my photos from Monday, Tuesday, and part of Wednesday:
Monday morning: time to clean up and recover from the weekend
Monday = Laundry Day. I like this shot because not only does it capture Kaitlyn helping out, but the headphones, worn first thing in the morning is just so HER.
Beautiful weather and yard work
No he doesn't take naps. Unless he spontaneously falls asleep on his own.


Ty kept trying to use the camera at soccer. In this one he actually managed to get Katy in the frame. Most of them were photos of the ceiling or the floor lol. Not suprising since he would hold the camera up to his face but his eye was never actually looking through the view finder.
Wed morning: making breakfast. SO TYPICAL. Kaitlyn with her bed head taking over things and Ty crying because she's in the spot he wanted to be and afraid he won't get a turn to stir. I love that the kids like to help and especially that they are interested in cooking but the process is always an exercise in patience for me.

She's making a face because she's not always exactly happy that I'm taking her photo.
