If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Window Crayons

When I first heard about window crayons, I don't know who was more excited- Mommy Me or Photographer Me.

Mommy Me loves how these kinds of activities reveal the individual personalities of my children. 

Ruthie wrote her name and drew circles and squiggles.

Jack drew weather patterns.

And Sam drew a multi-layered scene complete with a light saber fight.

Photographer Me loves the challenge of capturing this right.  First I had to decide which window to use.  I didn't want so much light in that it washed out the crayon or created a silhouette but I also didn't want to have to set my ISO too high or use my flash.

Then I got to play with composition and which side of the window to shoot from.  I also enjoyed to trying to figure out where was best to focus- my subject or the art.

We all had a great time- all 3 kids and both of my personalities. :)
