Last week was a rough week. Work, work, work and yet, still, there’s the house, the kids, the hubby and the pony. Once you have a responsibility, no matter what lands on your plate, there’s no shirking the responsibilities. And while I admit I grumbled trying to fit in pony time with my work schedule, once I was with Chin Chin, my day brightened!
It does a body good to get out of the office, especially when the sun is still shining (don’t worry! I have lots of sunscreen on… and usually a hat). Cole came with us, he has AP exams and he’s home early these days. The pony makes Cole sneeze, but he loves getting a chance to get out and he loves getting a chance to play with my camera. I’m always excited when the kids show interest in my hobbies, whether it’s photography, quilting, snowboarding or horse (pony) riding!
And, as tired as I was, as make-up free as I was, as not-skinny as I am, I do like being in front of the camera too. To my kids, at least Dane, they think I’m perfect so I step in front of the camera whenever asked, even if it’s not a perfect day. I will never be perfect but preserving my memories, as well as those of the kids, that is a chance I will never pass up. Plus, I really love looking at the things that caught Cole’s eye while he held the camera.
