Despite summer and all its bliss filled lazy ways, the week felt long. The boys' dad has been gone since early Sunday morning (he returns late tonight) so I have to admit, I let the boys get away with a bit more "screen time" than usual (though for my oldest, screen time is actually reading books on line, once he has gotten through the paper-bound ones we have fetched from the library). The upside of screen time is that the boys' are actually still for longer than two seconds. However we did construct a huge blanket fort mid-week in our living room and have been hiding out in there ever since: playing games, escaping the doldrums, pretending we live at Hogwarts...and enjoying a little screen time under there as well, hence the odd lighting in the first shot above (the youngest + the middle) and the very last shot (of the middle) below.
I loved so many portraits this past week it was hard to whittle down to a reasonable number:
Mel's portrait of her sweet brood over at Coal Valley View is spectacular!// Lila's photo of two sweet hands, napping, at Little Wolf // Wendy's photo of her sweet bubble boy at Little Nico// Milena's perfect photos of her two sweet men at boy eats kasha// the colors are superb in Ashley's beautiful photo of her husband at the Stork & the Beanstalk.// Vanessa's important, stark and beautifully raw honesty in Slow Heart Sing's post. //Amy's sweet portrait of her daughter at Fer Cute// all this baby and sweet cuteness at Patchwork Cactus;
PS. have you seen this screen addition? xxoo
