Isn't it funny when you look back ... on a moment ... on a day, week, month, it's always the little things that one remembers. So my girl's Wednesday's off have come to an end ... *sigh*. While she is eager to begin a full week of school, I treasured and clung to our remaining "you and me" time together. This whole "you and me" day thing was a concept my mother started with me growing up.
The tradition continues.
So here is my girl this past Wednesday out in the backyard. It was a lovely day and one only needs give her a bucket of water and a paintbrush and off she goes. Simple but memorable.
You all know my love of reading and I long for the day I come down and happen upon a child of mine spontaneously reading. Hugh will read, enjoys reading ... but the catch is, when I tell him to. Katie I think will be a different *fingers crossed*. Quite often I will come upon her with a book and she has really taken to learning to read in these first few weeks of school - bless her little soul. She is so proud of her accomplishments - I think her smile of satisfaction says it all!
During my weekly house clean this past week I also came upon our box cupboard and it struck me ... I wonder when the day will come when I DON'T have to throw every cardboard box into it. My kids LOVE to create - in fact I think this lot has already been taken yesterday to make a robot. *sigh* I really must scrap about this.
My Project 52 photo this week is another thing I happened across in my house cleaning this week - I obviously don't clean enough to really notice these things LOL! Currently the children share a table for working on. Hugh was so fed up with Katie 'tornado' girl mess, that he requested a yellow demarcation line on the table. Quite funny really when you come to think of it. My boy so clean and ordered, my girl a walking disaster zone. How she comes home from creche and now school with all these stamps for "great cleaning up" I would love to know! Just goes to prove my girl is a home devil and street angel (another saying of my mothers) and all my lecturing proves useful somewhere ... just not at home!
This week in PCF Maria set us the challenge of "red". Here is what I came up with. I got out my wonderful Canon Powershot and utilised the "colour accent" function. Got to love that. I like my peg photo and Den who happened to be wearing red on Saturday, went out and quickly returned with a bunch of red roses and said "here is your challenge shot". Anything to get out of being photographed!

I am hosting the March Camera Corner Challenge at Oscraps ... the number four!
Kim (aka Gilmore Girl) is in the spotlight and here is a lift of one of her pages.
We played a scrapping game over at Nina's CT ... I had to lift Nini! Eeek! Always loads of fun that game.
Finally Sue Cummings has some wonderful new goodies out:
Some pages ... for Ange:
