Last week I blogged and mentioned in a little post on Facebook about what I plan to do this summer.


And I was happy to hear some of you would be interested in joining me.  So it got me thinking about it a little more.  How to keep it easy and carefree - just as summer is supposed to be.

I know what I'm like.  If I don't take 15 minutes to download and sort my images each day, the day runs into a few days, then a week and before I know it I have a pile of photographs to go through and it seems overwhelming.   And I don't do overwhelming very well ;).  So daily management it will be.  For you, it might be something different.  If you have a hard time picking up the camera - just get used to that.  Have it out, take your images and set it down.  Let them accumulate on your card and when September rolls around and you are able to tell your family summer story that will be pretty cool.

Here are a few of my images from our summer last year.  I wasn't diligent in taking photos everday, but I have to say a few things definately crossed my mind when I pulled them all together to look at here.  One, my kids are growing like crazy.  Two, they are the funnest people EVER.  Three, summer's are simply the best.  Four, I would have never remembered half of the moments had I not clicked the shutter.  And five, I feel grateful.

I hope you join me.
