Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Project 52. Week 11.

One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.

Children are amazing.

Their wide eyed innocence and carefree curiosity guides their days as they freely live in the moment. They take each experience as it comes and they fully embrace it. They have an unconditional love of life and everything around them.

There is so much we adults can learn from children. Instead of trying to change them and shape them how we think they should be, we should step back and observe what they innately know. We'd all be that much better for it.

So live in the moment. See the beauty in everything. Live and love unconditionally. Slow down and definitely take each day as it comes. Let's learn from our amazing children.
