Photo a Day: July 28 - Aug 3

I am often very critical of my photo-a-day pictures. 
I like them all individually this week, Micah clinging to his daddy's neck, the boys and their cousin on the airplanes at the park, naked chalk. And yet, as a collection I feel bleh. Too much of the same. They are all pictures of adorable little blond children, every week. 
The truth is, I take lots of pictures of things besides my children, but when push comes to shove and I'm weeding out my favorite pictures from the day- the pictures of my children are the ones I care about most. On days when I post things like pictures of soup, I force myself to leave the camera in the house the rest of the day, because I know I'll take another picture of my kids that I like more! 
It's okay, right? There's nothing wrong with loving pictures of my own kids - especially when, generally speaking, they're beautiful kids and good pictures. 
I guess we're all critical of our own work, right? I'm critical of my writing, cooking, and photography (but not my quilting, since I'm all about wonky.) I think I can do better. 
I don't know what this is really about. Just my weekly random-ramblings. 
Happy Monday, folks. Welcome back to reality.

Love the hug and the blackberries! I doing a portrait a week challenge and its been tough for me to get an interesting variety of photos, especially when the twins were young and couldn't really move! I can only imagine that a daily assigner woul be that much more challenging. What great memories, though!
