Point & Shoot / Living Arrows 21 July 2015 – My Family Ties

School’s Out!

It’s that time already again, Summer holidays have begun and with six weeks ahead they kids are already saying ‘What are we going to do today mum?” I think that is going to be the standard every day this holiday! On Lara’s last week she got to dress up as a Disney character (A frozen dress came out of course!) and I just couldn’t resist taking a few snaps before she left for school, looking lovely with her outfit and her teachers gifts. 

She was being so patient for me as I really wanted a few photo’s of her looking lovely in her Anna outfit, the light wasn’t terrific as it was a little overcast, but I did get these treasures and I’m so glad I did as they are just lovely to look back on. This year has flown by and before you know it we will all be putting up the Christmas tree and dragging out all the decorations!  I know I drive my family a little crazy with all the photos I take, but I am always thankful to look back and remember days like these, I must take the time to get these printed out and put on the wall.

It’s as if the children shrug off their school bags at the door and do a little jig for Summer, and why not! We have lots of things planned over the next few weeks to make some new memories and I will definitely be making an effort this Summer to put all my photos together in print so we can enjoy looking through them, sunshine, getting messy and lots of time together is just what we all need and I for one can’t wait to start.

    Oh what a fab costume, I don't think I've seen such a nice Frozen one before. We've just broken up for summer, like 20 mins ago! I'm having a quick blogging session whilst the little one chills out with a celebratory ice cream and gets dressed, ready for her first play date of the summer holidays!

    I hope you have a great summer break and can't wait to see your snaps!

    Not too long before the end of this year. Doesn't time fly! I like both your colour & black & white photos.
