project.fiftytwophotos.weeks 34 – 47 [catch up]

it’s about time for another catch up post for my photo a week project. i’ve been clicking away, some week more than others. here are the most memorable from the past several weeks:

[week 34] this crazy looking wasp we found in the house. they travel alone and do not swarm, thank goodness. but check out that stinger!


[week 35] dirty little marshall feet.


[week 36] first week of NFL and we all made our picks. even marshall. we’ve faithfully made picks each week. can’t wait to tally up the wins. i think we’ll do dinner as a family just to celebrate the end of the season!


[week 37] captured this one evening from my backyard. still couldn’t believe how stunning it turned out. reminds me of how big our God is and how beautiful he made life for us here.


[week 38] marshall grabbed my small point and shoot, somehow turned it to black and white and started snapping.


[week 39] after a lot of maturing, gibson got a hamster and named him albert.


[week 40] my boys…waitin’ for a train


[week 41] hey it’s me, maaario!


[week 42] first pair of chucks


[week 43] playing noah’s ark for the millionth time with marshall. oh no, lost my mate.


[week 44] zuke. stacks of zuke.


missed week 46 =(

[week 47] turkey leg.

P52.week 47

ahhh, that feels good to be done.

project.fiftytwophotos.weeks 26 – 33 [catch up]

it’s been quite a summer! lots of water fun, family gatherings and lazy days. this doesn’t mean i’ve been slacking on taking my P52 photos…just posting them.

you ready for 8 weeks in fast forward? heeeeere we go!

week 26: this is marshall’s new smile. cheeeese!

week 27: getting in some drills, routes and sprints before conditioning camp. he ended up not making the team so these pics and knowing how good he looked out there with us makes these a little more sentimental.

week 28: gibson’s first mow!

week 29: marshall loves to ride the “horr-iss” outside of the dollar store. for 25 cents…it’s cheap fun!

week 30: gibson rolled his ankle during conditioning and had to be on crutches for 5 days.

week 31: those eyes and freckles. mmm. he let me snap this one. kinda wish he smiled but i gotta be happy with what he’ll let me get.

week 32: snuggle time on the hammock with my little marsh-man

week 33: gibson’s first day of fifth grade. next year he’ll be in middle school. yikes!

feels good to be caught up on that project. i’m still behind in Project Life. this weekend i developed all the pics from May so i’m catching up slowly.

hope everyone has a good week!

you’re probably wondering why, right? why the heck did she take a picture of a bottle of soap? well…it’s a milestone. gibson has graduated to ‘man soap’. it might be because he’s a kid who plays outside and honestly, he can stink. the little kiddy soap that marshall uses just isn’t cutting it for our tween so he got an upgrade to go along with theΒ deodorantΒ he’s been using for a couple months. and now…he smells good…all day. yay for all of us!

but as you can see by the legoman…he’s still a 9yo boy. and i am okay with that. =)

project.fiftytwophotos // week 24

i am soooo behind on my weekly photos. the pics are taken, i promise. i just keep forgetting to pick and post.

a trip to the zoo and of course, the flamingos were perfectly colorful. i actually decided to tone down the saturation on them instead of making them too bright.
