Mud Soup

1 Jun

I am happy to report that, after some wise words from all of you, the wall is starting to break down. I have moved forward a tiny bit and that is good because it means I am not standing still!!

I have decided on a photo story and am off to take some photos this afternoon. I have also been to take photos of the children I had lined up. I saw 3 families in 2 days. 6 children in total. I had a lot of fun taking the photos. But I still know so little – sigh!

There is good news on the horizon too. I got a call from a lady who runs some sort of mom/baby group and they want me to come and take photos of all their children on one day. There was even a hint of a payment possibility… (wow!) and then my neighbour has booked me for September to come and take photos of their school’s Grade 10 dance… also a chance of some sort of (small) payment mentioned – so I am thrilled about that!

Anyway, gotta go and do my homework. I’ll leave you with some photos of Adam & Caitlin (she lives up our road) playing together. He loves playing with her and follows her around and does everything she does. They each had buckets with water in and spoons from my kitchen. They then steadily added sand, stones, flowers, grass and other interesting things. Apparently they were making “mud soup”. Adam got absolutely filthy, but had a wonderful time. Who could resist the expression of joy on his face below??

    Your son is so precious – what an enchanting little smile! Thanks for coming by my place – you weren’t sure how you surfed onto me but I noticed SleepyJane is on your blogroll (she’s on mine too) so she must be the connection! Thank you for stopping by Pia! Your blog is wonderful, I’m going to go look around now!
