I had planned to end this series with an image of myself and my two sisters. Dignified and all adult. However yesterday, we went back to the FOTT house for another afternoon of swimming in the pool and dinner with the family.
After all of the kids became water logged, and cold, it was time for races on the grass. It started with a game of "Ready, Set, Go" with the two youngest boys, yet soon everyone joined in.
You know how people say it is all fun and games until someone loses an eye? Well in this case is was just a really good case of grazing, from dry summer grass. Justin tripped an fell, he had
shoulders and Jarvis in his arms. He threw Jarvis to one side like a footie to
save falling on him. Then Justin and Eden fell together. She did the most
amazing tuck and roll and came out shaken with a slightly grazed knee. Eden
I think Justin came off the worse, I have included an image taken with a flash of his head, but his arms are also all grazed. The images are not in focus and taken with a flash, but in spite of them being crap in quality, how could I not include them in this series, they show our crazy, fun, family in all of it's insanity.
To see it in it's full glory you can either go to Tamika's instagram account http://web.stagram.com/n/tamikacollins/ or Levi's instagram account http://web.stagram.com/n/levishappysnaps/. While you are on instagram, why not add me as well, my link is up there on the right.
Okay, so that is a year of my family in images.
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.
