I'm sort of working backwards to get caught up on the blog. This is what happens when I take forever to download pictures from the camera and get some posts up. I wish I was a more organized person/blogger to get these up in a timely manner. Maybe in my next life...
So we dyed Easter eggs the Wednesday before Easter. It was a super busy week with getting ready for Jack's party, getting ready for Easter, and attending Holy Week services - but we managed to get the activity in on Wednesday.
Note to self: with three kids and two parents dyeing eggs - 12 was not enough. Regardless of if I'll be able to stomach 14 egg salad sandwiches or 37 deviled eggs - we need to do more next year.
Anna patiently waited for her eggs to turn the proper color ... well, sort of patiently.
I don't know if I mentioned on the blog before now - but I'm taking a photography class taught by a local photographer. It's great! I'm finally using my camera beyond the 'auto' setting - albeit very slowly. I'm still trying to figure out terms that up until now have been foreign to me like aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focal length.
Will I ever get a natural smile from this boy of mine again?
I'm still not brave enough to take my camera off 'auto' for the important shots - like Easter morning or birthday candles - but I'll get there. Someday. For now, I'm having fun playing with the settings and learning all about what this camera of mine can do - which is a LOT more than I've been letting it do for the last three years!
