you get what you get

Yesterday I took portraits of Abbott and his classmates and it was the most fun I had all day. For obvious reasons I can't share them here, but I am really happy with the results. I appreciated the opportunity to interact with Abbott and his peers on the playground, and the practice at taking pictures of children on the move.

I can't stop thinking about this.

I roasted shrimp for dinner - generally our favorite way to eat shrimp; for some reason Abbott didn't like them. Spent a lot of time shelling english peas and both kids put ketchup on them.

We planted a few more things in the garden before bed - it felt like summer.

Happy Tuesday!

Must be hard to try capturing "jumping" kids!
Ketchup is a mystery to me, but I love fresh peas (my pea plants haven't even flowered yet this year!)

I love children jumping photos! Have a great one of my kids, taken back in the 60's.

My children do the same. One minute they like something and the next they claim they don't like it. I had one of my boys eat green beans for a while with ketchup and now he will not touch them. Ugh!

I love that jumping idea, I am going to copy it!

When I saw your post title, I thought, "You get what you get and you don't pitch a fit." I am ninety percent sure that's what you meant!

I did class photos, too. I requested a certain location and made comments about lighting and they were all disregarded by the staff in charge (out of my control), so I was really disappointed with how the photos came out. So glad you were pleased with yours. Are you making a photo book for the teacher?

So interesting, Lecia! love the article and the photos on it!
Maybe a coincidence, serendipity? Visit my flickr photos...jumping on the beach!

That is a fascinating article...and I think I'll be thinking about it all evening myself!

Glad to hear you had such a good experience photographing the kids. Always fun to be able to join one's passion with one's loved ones!

Wow, look at that beautiful clematis! I've had trouble growing them in the past, but I think I've found which one works best for our locale - one is going strong, and the new one I put in the ground is taking off, too.
My daughter has a little friend who's fave food is bread with a side of ketchup. ???!??
