Bringing the Outside In

Bringing the Outside In is the title of the book I read for this post, and it really summed up my week. Bringing the Outside In is the story of children during each season enjoying everything the outdoors has to offer and then accidentally tracking bits of the outside in. Along the way, pictures of all the beautiful moments were taken keeping the outside in, and later, they are brought out again to be enjoyed all over.

This book particularly touched me because one of my many passions is taking photographs of all the beautiful memories my family and I make. And this weekend, we made lots of memories at my brother's country home. There was a little target practice and some crazy cousins posing.

And some chicken watching.

And some humming bird watching.

And some Fishing.

And no day in the country is complete until you sit in front of the bonfire and make smores.

Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. Also be sure to drop by Literacy Musings Mondays for more great blogs as well as my personal website Fun With Aileen where you will find more on reading, writing, and my very own chapter and picture books. And finally, you can find me on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
