And then we snapped – 31/8 to 6/9

I didn’t think I’d be able to post this week. This time of the year is always hard for us, as it’s the anniversary of our son’s diagnosis with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. So I was feeling pretty sad all week and barely took out my camera. The shots I did manage to get weren’t any of my favourites, but I decided to post them anyway as I don’t want to miss a week. So here’s my week in pics (with 2 older shots thrown in that I have only just gotten around to editing this week).

Day 243

It’s the last day of winter. You know what that means? Swim season is upon us!


Day 244

First day of spring – time to break out those swimmers!


Day 245

This is a typical afternoon at the park for James. He can’t do much else than sit and watch his siblings have fun.


Day 246

Time for Little Kickers. Paddy loves playing soccer.


Day 247

After school haircuts. I think my girls could get used to this! Especially the head massage.


Day 248

Fat Friday means movie night!


Day 249

Weekend afternoons at the park are both free and easy.


And that’s me. I’ll be back with more enthusiasm next week. In the meantime, follow the link and check out what my friend Melissa from Melissa Pizzalato Photography has been up to.
