Capture the Everyday is about getting you to capture those everyday moments in your life! Each Thursday, I’ll issue a simple challenge to capture something that’s a part of your daily life. You can post just a picture or add some words to go along with it. You’ll have a week to get it done and then I’ll issue another. It’s a quick, easy way to start capturing those little parts of life we sometimes take for granted.
This Week’s Assignment:
Big Roo’s Favorite Toy
I bought this bowling set at Target when Big Roo was almost 2 years old (I think). I was a little disappointed that he didn’t take to them right away. Well, he DID take to them… he took to eating them. See those little bite marks on the top of EVERY SINGLE PIN? Yep, that’s my boy.
Fast forward to now. He’s a bowling maniac. He loves setting the pins up over and over. And try to get strikes. And spares. And split spares. Oh yes, he knows all of this.
Lately, he’s been wanting to set them up in different ways and try to get a strike. Like sometimes we’ll line them up in a row, which isn’t really going to land us a strike all that easily.
It’s fun watching him get so excited about these little pins. I’m just hoping the tops of them will last through Little Roo’s toddler years. He’s already enjoying biting into the ball.
Little Roo’s Favorite Toy
Little Roo got this toy for Christmas. While he likes pushing, turning and twisted all the parts, his favorite part is using the hammer to knock the yellow, blue and red “nails.” They light up and count “ONE!”… “TWO!” and so on.
He giggles and hammers as best he can. Glad this toy has been such a big hit.
Next Week’s Assignment: Something you like to snack on
If you want to participate, just a few things to note:
– Grab the badge (code is in column to the right):
– Feel free to write about what you captured. A funny story about it. A history on it. How you’ll remember it. What will you want to remember about that picture 20, 30, 40 years from now?
– Just a picture and a caption are fine too.
– Don’t worry if you “aren’t a good photographer.” Consider this practice. Plus, it’s about capturing the memory, not a pretty picture.
– Visit the blogger ahead of you and as many others as you have time for.
– Leave a comment below.
– Since this is a new meme, would you mind helping me spread the word? A tweet, a Facebook like, anything. Thanks- you rock!
