I whip my camera out at a moment’s notice much to the embarrassment of most of my children.
They have to turn to their friends and say “project 365” with a groan and an eye roll.
And sadly all their friends know what they are talking about.
When my 13 year old son sees me taking pictures of random things around the house he says in a falsetto voice “project 365!” (which isn’t much different than his regular voice-puberby hasn’t quite kicked in yet, poor guy)
Here are a few of the family memories I recorded that would have otherwise passed me by:
Ashleigh here now… I hope all of you “project lifers” are still going strong.
Here are a few of my favorites from the first few months of the year…
I had to document the fact that my little jedi always has to be armed. He knows I won’t let him bring a huge light saber wherever we go, so he grabs anything with a similar shape to act as his concealed light saber. He also makes sure to wear a belt everyday, to hold his “light sabers.” On this occasion, his imaginary light saber was a whistle.
If I’m going to give in and let the kids play outside in the pouring rain
(and deal with the wet and dirt coming in the house), I’m going to grab my camera!
Yep, watching the fun they had made up for the laundry they created!
This was at the burial service of our wonderful grandpa. I love this picture because it captures some “reunion moments” when the boy cousins (grandkids) reminisced and joked around. It reminds me that although it is a sad thing, the legacy he left behind is such a happy and wonderful thing.
Capturing the simple moments is what makes me love and adore the mindset of “project life.”
