1st Grade Photography

 
Today, as the horrible heat broke a little bit, we decided to venture outside. It's sad to say, but we've been stuck inside during this summer because of the heat wave that has hit us over the last two weeks.

Well, we finally got a break. It was still 86 degrees outside, but way better than the 100 plus degrees we've been having to deal with.

Armed with a bottle of ice cold water and a digital camera, Buttercup and I went for a nice, long walk in our neighborhood. I encouraged her to take pictures of anything she found interesting. It was a way to keep her mind off the heat and focused on something fun.

So here are the photos from our walk!

Buttercup took all of these pix herself!

Where ever you happen to be, I hope the weather is great and it allows you to enjoy the great outdoors. Do you also have a budding photographer in your family?

Happy Homeschooling Adventures!

    1. Yes, definitely do. When you look at the pictures afterwards, you get to see a whole new perspective.

  4. I love some of the pictures I find on my camera after my kids have been taking photos with it! One daughter is especially into it. She'll turn the camera to get different angles. Glad to have found you through the Epic Mom hop! Newest follower. :)

  7. Saw your link on the Monday Mom mingle, and had to check you out, because I homeschool too. The heat this summer has been unbelievable. I have been sending my kids out early in the day, for a breath of fresh air. Then we buckle back down in the ac. Have a wonderful day!=)

  8. Looks like it was a lot of fun and very practical. You could even let her have her own photo gallery and invite some family over for her. She will be so great when she grows up! I am so glad I found your blog. Stopping by from Mom's mingle. I hope to see you at True Aim. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Eschelle,

      That's a great idea! Disposable cameras are great too especially on vacation.
