At one time I would have worried that the camera was coming between me and the moment, a distraction, stopping me from being engaged. Instead, I have found over the years that the drive to capture only comes when I am more emotionally available. And the lens helps me to really SEE the beauty in the ordinary.
Yesterday we spent the morning at sling meet, then most of the afternoon between the living room and garden. Tree climbing. Reading. Watching Avatar. Talking. Play with the dolls house and lego. It was another good day.
Today has been faster paced, more home-based, but much busier. Helping Daddy change a bulb. Train tracks and other puzzles. Reading reading and more reading. Playing doctor and using the reference books from the library. Garden play. Pottermore, French lessons, and phonics, taking turns on the computer. Weaving. Maths: rounding to the nearest ten and the nearest hundred. Cooking (Jenna made lamb stew all by herself).
