Taking School Outside

This afternoon we just had to get out and enjoy our beautiful weather. I actually got Selena outside without thinking she had to have her bike. Selena discovered that the moon was out, and insisted on using my camera to get a picture of it.

I laughed so hard, as she stood near the sidewalk to take these pictures, a couple and their child walked in front of her. Selena stopped and in the most serious voice said, “I am sorry, but I am trying to get a picture of the moon.” The mother turned around and said, “Oh your ok, go on ahead and get a picture of the moon.” Selena put her hand on her hip and informed her, “Don’t walk like that I am trying to get a picture of the moon.” The mom didn’t know that Selena was trying to tell her don’t walk in front of me when I am trying to take a picture of the moon. I could hardly hold in the laughter.

Then we had some fun!

  1. Selena did a great job photographing the moon!

  2. Selena took great pictures. We also enjoyed some time outside today - it's so nice to finally enjoy spring.

  3. That is so cute! I love the one of you peeking over the edge of the picture. Kids really do bring so much joy!

  4. What wonderful weather! We pick lots of dandeflowers here too. And then they go in my hair.........
    I love kid taken pictures, they're so much fun. That's probably why I let the kids have my camera so often.

  5. Caleb loves Dandiflowers as well. We did a unit study on them he was so interested.

    Looks like you have a budding photographer on your hands.

  6. Looks like you had great fun outside! :) It's so excited to see those first flowers of spring popping up, isn't it?!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and following me. I'm following you now too.

    If you try the cherry coffeecake, be sure to let me know what you think. :) It's yummy!

  7. Sounds like a wonderful day! My son loves it when the sun is out during the day :-)
