Ordinary Moments in Ordinary Days Oct. 9, 2017 to Oct. 14, 2017

This is part of a new project called Ordinary Moments in Ordinary Days where I capture ordinary moments in our days for the month of October. Those ordinary moments often make up very extraordinary lives. We may not all be famous or save lives on a global scale or make a national or international impact, but each of us have the opportunity to touch others, show them light, and speak life. Each of us have moments, the small moments, the little details of our day, that mean something to us, even if they don’t mean anything to anyone else.

Painting pumpkins has become an obsession and even the cat had to get up on the top of the freezer to see what was going on. 10.10.17

It seems like such a sweet scene. And for ten seconds it was. But then he grabbed the doll, again, after just returning it, and ran across the yard while she ran after him screaming “Let go of my baby! Put my baby down!!” 10.11.17

More pumpkin painting with very bright colors. She loves to add more and more colors and it gets her out of the house, away from the TV and into the fresh air, so I’m fine with it, even when our clothes and back porch get more paint than the pumpkins. 10.12.17

A trip to Ithaca, N.Y. for a senior session tired us all out a little bit after climbing a very steep hill on the campus at Cornell University. Luckily The Boy was nice enough to carry Little Miss part way up the hill.
