33/52




It has been a long arduous week. Jarvis fell and smashed his face on the concrete. Tamika moved out of home. Jarvis had to have surgery to repair the damage from his fall. There were other visits to specialist doctors. Justin got word that he is going to Cambodia to photograph something amazing (more on this later). We found out the house we rent is being sold, so we have to move. Plus I became one of those, yes a Mother-In-Law. (well sort of)

Tamika and Guy have been together for over two and half years. Now that they have moved in together I thought it fitting to include Guy in this week’s Family Portrait. Look at Jarvis emulating Guy with the remote and acting like one of the ‘big’ boys.


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. Unfortunately a quiet week-end is not going to happen. Justin has to work tomorrow (he works every Saturday) and Monday we have Jarvis swimming lesson and I have to have a scan. The weekend after? Lets hope...

  2. Well that's a bit of a full on week isn't it? I hope Jarvis is feeling better. I guess you might like a slighter quieter week ahead? X

    1. I love Tamika's grumpy face in the middle image. Not happy she is waiting on the boys to finish their game.

    2. LMAO! I don't blame her, it irritates me to no end too.

    3. Poor Tamika has a partner who is a big kid and loves his games. Poor Guy, Tamika is not at all a patient partner.

    1. Funny how that term implies all sorts of things. I think I would prefer the busy at your place over the busy at our place.
