365 Photography challenge
I’ve been a little frustrated recently because I want to study my photography books more and have the time and space to really focus on programming the camera… but I just don’t have that right now. When I get to bed, I open my kindle and start reading and invariably, I’m asleep before I’ve finished the page.
In November, we’ll be heading back down to Mexico and I won’t be solo parenting anymore. It’ll be a good time to get caught up!
Here’s some forward movement in the Photo Challenge:
If you just say, “bath”, Moxie’s hopping in! The only thing she just can’t stand is having her hair washed, so after making SURE that I won’t wash her hair, she floods out with joy over some bathing time. It’s pretty adorable.

Micah loves cooking. LOVES IT!
I don’t know why I’m always so surprised by that, given that both Mikey and I are total foodies. We both cook, we both love cooking, we both love watching cooking shows and we revolve a good portion of our travels around food and culinary adventures. So it makes sense that our kid would love it too, right?!
Mikey’s taught him to make perfectly poached eggs. Here they are.

Part of the drive on the way back home. It’s nuts here, you know. I doubt I’ll ever be able to really capture it through the camera, because there is so much more to this than the jaw-dropping view. It’s the tiny road that leads down. It’s the deer that are hanging out. It’s seeing a car waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down there, moving forward and it looks like a toy or something. It’s the smell of salt and the feeling of power simply from the combination of elements present.

Mack ran into a little house on the playground. Moxie around it and starting “huffing and puffing” to blow his house down!

It was one of those times in which I was left quiet by his beauty.

He needed the dose of confidence that being in camp in town for a week brought him. He surged with bright energy, joy in a sense of belonging and being included and made this mama smile.

Moxie has ALWAYS loved the fastest, highest, spinniest of slides! I remember when she was barely walking and she’d climb up the top of something SUPER high and fly down and laugh her ass off. Other moms in the playground would give me that “oh, you horrible mother, you” look, “how could you??” and withering stares but they didn’t know Moxie.
And Moxie… was born with moxie. Lots of it.

Maybe one of the photos I love most of these two.

I have to record his laugh sometime. And then sell it as a ringtone or something (and make a million bucks)
