While working on this month's blog circle post, I did a little experiment and pretended I was shooting with film. I chose one ISO and didn't change it for the whole series. I also gave myself a limit to the number of shots I took and turned off the LCD. I didn't see what I had until I loaded them on the computer. It was a fun project and it made me slow down and think a little bit more about what I wanted to shoot.
With my little helpers in tow, we tackled the dishes and laundry, made the bed, picked up, and vacuumed. It was a busy day, but I enjoyed working together with my girls.

In July, I joined a blog circle and we documented breakfast time. This month our blog circle is documenting what getting ready looks like. Be sure to check out Stephanie's blog next.
Getting ready is always an adventure with two little ones. It's just more fun to play and move and wiggle and run. And the diapers...oh so many diapers.
Julia's getting pretty quick. She's been starting to crawl so any chance she gets, she's on the go.
Getting ready usually requires a trip to the dryer to find clothes. This time, Caroline left as quickly as she came, leaving Nighny and Another One Nighny behind.
Caroline is becoming quite independent. She still needs some help with her clothes, but she loves to brush her teeth herself. She's actually getting pretty good at the back-and-forth brushing motion. She always informs me "Caroline first" when I ask her to go brush. Mommy finishes up just to be sure we keep those teeth clean and white!
And what girl doesn't need to spend a little time on her hair! Oh that beautiful, red hair!
Head on over to Stephanie's blog to see what getting ready looks like for her!
Julia had her breakfast SUPER early and went back to sleep. So, instead of going back to bed after she ate, I stayed up and enjoyed the dark, quiet house all to myself for a while. But, first coffee...
I sipped on my coffee and unloaded the dishwasher before I sat down to my usual..a bowl of oatmeal and the morning Facebook headlines.
Paul was busy fixing his breakfast just as the sun was starting to come through the back windows. He made his usual...three scrambled eggs, a bagel, cream of wheat, and a cup of coffee. Caroline joined him soon after and had her "bagel-and-ceam-cheese" with juice.
Munchin' on bagels, sippin' on coffee (or juice), and chit-chatting with your Daddy is the best way to start the day!
