Today was an excellent day! The kids and I started the day bright and early, even after a late night last night! Olivia woke up when Damien came in the room to say goodbye. She sat right up from a sound sleep and said, "Daddy" in this soft sweet whisper. Then she reached up and touched his cheek when she gave him a kiss. Of course, I was annoyed because I was hoping to sleep just a little longer ;) New rule in the house is the hubby has to say goodbye before he gets in the shower on the weekends!
After church, my Mom agreed to watch the kids so I could go on my 3-mile walk. I really love that 45 minutes of me time. I probably won't get it again for a few days, so it was cherished today. When I got back we all went grocery shopping. Cameron shopped with me and Olivia shopped with my Mom. When I ran into them a few times in the store, my Mom seemed a little frazzled. Olivia has a way of doing that to people!
Cameron really wanted to ride his scooter for a few minutes before supper, and since I did not have a photo for the day... I wanted to try out motion blur and it was a lot of fun! Cameron was such a great sport. Actually, as soon as he saw me laying down on the ground with my camera he zoomed right past. He heard the click and says, "How did that look. Can I see?" I love that they support me with my hobby and help me with my homework :) We spent twenty minutes trying out the motion blur. I showed him the effect I was looking for so he was just as intent on getting the perfect shot as I was. So sweet! It's not perfect, but it is the effect I was going for. Knowing Cam is such a willing subject now, I will have lots of opportunity to practice. Thank goodness he loves that scooter!
