Our 36th Week ~ 2014

How it is that we are a week into September already?!  We are settling into our routines now that the kids are back to school.  I'm still editing my eyeballs out.  I have been so blessed lately with photo sessions, but oh the editing!  It doesn't look like things will slow down much either.  That is both good and bad, as you can imagine.

I am still participating in Fat Mum Slim's photo a day challenge on Facebook.  For September I decided it would be fun to include my daughter, Keira, in each photo in honor of her 16th birthday (gasp!) on September 21.  So here are last week's pics ...

August 31: 10am
Today at 10am I was watching this beautiful lady emerge from her chrysalis while I was getting ready for church. A few hours later when I released her, she was more than ready to fly but was gracious enough to allow me to take a couple photos first.  After releasing the 5 females that emerged today, we have successfully raised and released 125 Monarch butterflies so far this summer! With still more to go.

And that concludes August's Photo a Day challenge!

Hey, how did she get in there?!  :)
(I wish the background were nicer but I've been messing with this idea long enough and this will have to do. Too much work awaiting me.)

{September 2: Stripes}

Vertical and horizontal. (I didn't ask her to wear stripes today. She did that all on her own.)

{September 3: Button}
September 3 Photo a day: Button
After a long and tiring day, both Keira and I were pretty uninspired with today's prompt. So this is all you get. Her with her Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, who both have buttons on their outfits. They were given to her by a sweet older lady who had "adopted" Keira as her granddaughter.

September 4 Photo a Day: DIY
Keira is taking a photography/graphics arts class this year (which I love) and her first project is to create a photo collage. She decided to make a Monarch butterfly. She is just in the beginning stages - we have one part of a wing cut out with the Silhouette machine and a couple pictures printed to check the sizes. I can't wait to see the finished project!

{September 5: Upside down}
September 5 Photo a Day: Upside Down
You knew I would have to fit a Monarch photo in this month somehow, right? These two caterpillars were hanging upside down in the J forms getting ready to pupate. Keira was checking them out for me. 

{September 6: I need ... }
September 6 Photo a Day: I need ...
Keira says, "I need these boys to get out of my room and leave me alone! Mooooooooooom!"

Well, that's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by!

That first shot of the butterfly is stunning. Love that you are doing shots with your lovely daughter as she celebrates "Sweet 16"
