today annie and i are starting our photo project. inspired by the good folks at photojojo. annie is mad about letters and numbers. she walks around all day pointing out the letters of her name and when she sees numbers she immediately starts counting, she also likes to hold up her fingers and ask us how many and then she puts her hands behind her back to "change" them and asks us again. hours of numbers fun!! i love her little sponge mind soaking up everything she learns at school. to say she is thriving in that environment would be an understatement. she amazes us everyday. i love the way she writes her name too - to me it's perfection. but anyway..... this project is perfect to combine her two loves to make this really cool calendar for her room. the calendar is a daily activity at school and makes for good observations to include the weather and even the time. we are going to go exploring for numbers and letters that i can photograph to create our masterpiece. i will post our diy journey and then the final product soon. i figure this is a great way to kill many birds with one stone - spending time with my favorite person in the whole world, getting outside and some much needed exercise, letting annie use her eye spy eyes and seeking out numbers 1-31 and letters for the days of the week and i can continue the happiness i get everytime i hold my camera in my hand. why don't you try this project and show me your results. i'd love to see.
