I also took them to the beach to escape the household that seemed to be getting sick ( Ma and hubbin went downhill with sore throats and whatever bugs were flying around) to enjoy some simple beach time and some lovely fresh air. Unfortunately for them, I took my camera :)
They can be impossible to capture... being clowns or being serious or just plain being themselves and NOT wanting another photo, I waited patiently to catch one of each of them, just in that "moment". We built castles, fished for treasures, watched the waves...
And whilst I did feel a little guilty at not having a "proper" crafty post to show you today, I feel calm and relaxed. My kids are learning about balance, to be busy and to slow down, to create happy memories in whatever they are doing.
And I am learning to be patient behind a lens :) Because when I do, and they think Im not happily clicking away ( and I use an awesome lens that looks like Im closer than I really am)I get these.
