On this continuing journey of taking and sharing a daily photo I rarely strive for photographic perfection. I am content to capture moments in our lives without concern for lighting or composure or even focus.
But some days the stars align and I stumble across a scene so naturally lovely that I feel compelled to put in a little effort. I am so pleased with everything in this little shot.

The Percy Jackson/Mythology obsession is still going strong around here, and today’s trip to see The Lightening Thief in Concord, NH was just the thing my little Half-Bloods were looking for. Even better to have friends to enjoy it with (those in this photo and others)!
A year-long passion for mythology and history, paired with interdisciplinary endeavors is just about all a life-learning, unschooling Mama could ask for!
I snapped this sun drenched photo of Esme and her climbing prowess, but it wasn’t until I was looking at the photos at home later that I saw her sister keeping a keen eye on her. Love.
Silly Bunny put the treats in their bonnets, not their baskets!
Bunny also got the last package of Peeps flavored Oreos at Target. Lucky Bunny!

These three (plus one) spent the afternoon making movies together. A second before I took this photo they were all sitting with their backs to me, watching their latest ‘episode’. Just as I snapped the pic one jumped up and I caught this rather dramatic looking, but actually benign, scene.
I smelled these beautiful hyacinths long before I saw them. A perfect springtime treat for the senses.
The best moment of spring, the first barefoot day on the beach.
