You Capture: Fun

I have to admit that I've spent a few days cursing Beth for picking fun for this week's You Capture. If I had to come up with adjectives to describe this week, fun would NOT be on the list. The letters F and U have certainly been involved in this week in oh so many ways, but not with the letter N attached.

This week has been long and heartbreaking. It's been difficult because none of it is suitable for blog fodder, yet I so badly need to vent. It has tried on every ounce of my sanity, yet fun time with this little guy always allows me to step back, count my blessings, and remember what matters.
Also fun was setting the timer for this picture and dashing back onto the couch to get into the shot. I got my exercise!

I totally and completely understand and thanks for making me chuckle.

I love how you set the timer to get in some fun :) Look at his face! Makes so much other stuff melt away, even if only for a moment.

I'm so sorry you've had a bad week : ( Your photo is wonderful. He's a doll and obviously you are a wonderful mother. Hopefully you'll have more "N" this week and less F and U.

I'm glad you were able to find a moment to have some fun with your little one. Looks like he is enjoying himself.

I know what you mean by the hard days. Although I don't know what you are going though, I have had a rough 2 weeks. I think taking moments such as these helps bring healing to broken hearts and encouragement during the rough times. Hang in there!

Girl, just let me know if you need to vent. I'm here for you.

And um, aren't you pregnant? Because in that picture, you don't look pregnant at all!! I thought you were posting an old "fun" picture :)

Luke is ADORABLE. And so are you, my dear. Great capture!!

Looks like a great way to take a break from life!

Boo stupid work. Please feel free to flood my e-mail box with any venting that is not blog fodder. :-) I may be going back to teaching, so then we can vent together..........
