Black and White Wednesday - " Ahhh.....summer! "

First week of summer 2011 130 blog

All year long we wait for days like these. Where we can throw on our flip flops and just walk out the door. Not a thing in hand. Well.....maybe the camera, but that doesn't count.

The school year is finished, books and pencils all tucked away and the fridge is well stocked with popsicles and fudge bars. (And real fruit bars too so no slamming.)

We've got new water guns, bouncing balls and skipping ropes (and I need to get more bubbles. What's summer without a fresh bottle of bubbles?)

I'm tackling a few house-keeping projects this summer because I know I'll be hitting the road hard, come September. The loft is getting cleaned-up and is (somewhat) returning to it's original state of my studio. I have a lot of new lighting equipment and backdrops and props and I'm spreading out in here. Things like "what is that?" and "where did we get that?" are ringing in the air and we've already taken 2 car loads to the Salvation Army with more to go. Even the kiddos are looking around with smiles at all the room we uncovered.
