Pictures, assignments and bulletins

spotlight paige wm

I promise not to keep talking about my photo assignments, but this one was too fun not to. My photog friend and I are working on composition and finding the light. I really am trying to work on using natural light so that I don't have to use off camera flash that often. I have so much to learn, but am having SO much fun doing it.

Let's do a little bullet post, shall we :)

  • Paige is doing so well in fifth grade. Academically, she is pulling her own weight, even though she has made some lower grades this year. She made her first "average" grade (as she refers to it). It makes me laugh, as I was always praying for that average grade. Paige, on the other hand, is a perfectionist. Always striving to be the BEST! She is dancing 7 hours a week and I keep telling her that it is all a BALANCING act. She is starting to ease up on herself. Bless her little sensitive heart.
  • I am having fun thinking about Christmas...yes, I said Christmas. I am so excited to start shopping and wrapping and baking and ... It is my favorite time of the year.
  • We are getting together with my brother and sister-in-law this weekend for dinner. I just adore my brother and I have to say, it has been hard having to share him with someone else. Anyone else feel that way when their brother got married? I do enjoy my SIL, though, and think we will be good friends.
  • I'm excited to start planning a summer vacay. We are thinking of spending a week in Cozumel. Anyone been? Any tips for travel? We usually go to Destin, Florida or Hilton Head and we really want to do something different this year.

Well, that about sums it up for now. I plan on blogging more. I am still compiling email addresses for the blog when it goes private. I've already received some emails from people asking to continue to follow. I just have to say, if you don't have a blog or I don't know you, don't be offended if you don't get extended an invitation. I am starting to feel really protective over little bit and don't want to infringe upon her privacy.

Hope everyone understands! If you are on my side bar or have a blog then you are as good as in :) Hope you all have a GREAT week!!!

Those Halloween costumes are awesome!

I'm not sure if I will fall into the eligible category or not. I do have a blog, but I just started it in May and it's not much. Either way, I understand. It has been so fun following your blog! =)

Love the post and these are some beautiful pics of Miss Paige! Olivia still talks (she never shuts up actually) about meeting Paige over the summer.

I am not on your sidebar (:() but I hope that meeting IRL helps me get an invite! ;-)

Hope you are feeling better!!
