Summer Afternoons and School Clothes

Can you believe they asked me? It's true. They asked to have their picture taken. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. The catch was that they wanted to wear the school clothes we purchased yesterday. I am up for shooting on a lonely afternoon. So off to the park we went.
Look at these shoes! They are super cute. The sweet girl loves them. In case you cannot tell they are covered in hearts. In her words..."who cares if they don't match everything...!...they have hearts all over them!"
This girl is all about a great accessory. We found this headband at a new store called Zida. It is one of those in love stores.
Oh for the love. This boy steals my heart. He picked out this shirt from Ross. As soon as his eyes saw this it became his favorite. It will most likely be the shirt he wears every time it is clean. You know the one? Did you notice his new do? He got a faux hawk back when we were traveling with LIFT. He felt the need for some newness.
His football made the pic. It was easier than the ball and bat he wanted. I enjoy his love for sports. If only I understood more about them.
Do you ever feel like your heart lives in others? I believe it is the ones whom we love that carry our heart.

Your children are beautiful! And you're great at capturing their personality in photos.

We're doing a little back to school shopping this weekend...but I'm doubtful my kids will ask for a photo shoot afterwards. One can still hope.

Thanks for all the beautiful remarks. It is sweet of you to say.

It was a fun way to showcase their new buys. They let me indulge in capturing some moments.

They are from Payless.

If they had them in my size we would have matching pairs.

Found your blog by randomly clicking through other blogs I enjoy - what a delightful surprise. This post reminded of a quotation by Elizabeth Stone,author (mother of 16). She said,
"Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body."

Blessings on your day
