Do you instagram?
I downloaded the free app on my iPhone about a year ago, but have only really started using it over the last few weeks. I've been trying to make myself take more pictures again and the handiness of my iPhone makes it a perfect fit. I can't take my DSLR everywhere but I always have my phone with me and it's fun to play with all the different filters that instagram provides.
One thing I noticed about my instagram pics is that the are heavily weighted with Clara pictures. As evidence I submit the following:
But my current favorite is the picture of my newly potty training two-year-old. Her (newly potty trained) big brother is taking his potty-training-teaching job very seriously and he's getting results!
On to my photographically neglected older children. I scoured my phone and came up with a couple of Gustin.
Here he is at gymnastics:
And here he is showing off the reward he earned for finally being potty trained! Yay!!
By the way, doesn't he have a sweet smile?
I don't have a single instagram photo of Elizabeth (I really need to fix that!) and only one of Jonathan. This next pic was taken at Jonathan's Cub Scouts awards banquet. Some very special guests arrived who helped hand out the badges and awards.
These guys made quite the entrance. The Star Wars Darth Vader theme was playing and they marched in in an extremely menacing way. It was very intimidating! Poor Clara did not like them at all and sobbed every time they were near and every other child there under the age of 3 was in tears. So sad. But, the scouts absolutely loved it. One of the boys got a storm trooper's autograph. It was signed XT-8475. Too funny!
I have one more photo to share that is not from instagram (but with a rollover). Here is Gustin showing off his new Lego plane that he spent half the morning building all by himself:
I'm so proud of him!
P.S. You can find me on instagram as simplycolleen.
