29/52





Jarvis had a make up swim lesson today (he has missed the last two classes because we went away and he has had a middle ear infection). So today Tamika was his swim buddy. I am not sure who had more fun, Jarvis or Tamika?


There are a few, Portrait a Week options out there. A lot involve taking a portrait of your children each week. Jodi over at Che and Fidel has inspired me to pick up my camera and turn the focus inward. Since I already take 100s of photos of my children each week, so I thought I would twist the idea a little. What I never seem to get is group shots, images of the family together, whether it is my two children, Tamika and Jarvis, or me with the kids, or shots of Justin and I. So I am going to challenge myself to get one image of "my family" per week.

  1. I'm going to give your challenge a go too. I don't have enough pics of us altogether ... mostly of the kids separately. I love the pic of your two darlings together, they're really enjoying each other's company :) xoxo

    1. Do it! It is so good to look back and see the interaction between the different family members. It is part of your family history that you do not want to miss/forget

    1. This is why I am loving Jodi's linkup, it is forcing me to take images of the family together each week and I love it

    1. Justin takes Jarvis every Monday for his swim lesson (I get really bad ear infection if I go under the water) so it wonderful that Tamika could take Jarvis on Saturday. I was just so good to watch the two of them have so much fun

  5. Water babies! I love that swimming around and playing in water will keep a little guy content for hours.

  7. Looks like big sis is a very good teacher. You know a swim lesson is going great when the student looks this happy. =) Very sweet family swim photos.

    1. Big sis was very brave to get in the pool on such a cold day. But she did it because she adores her brother
