Focusing on Life - 17 of 52

It's been four months since Sally Russick began her "Focusing on Life" series.  Each week, I've enjoyed focusing a bit on my life:  the kiddo, my husband, our family and our day to day activities.  This photo series is shaping up to be a wonderful digital scrapbook, of sorts.

Even more, though, I've enjoyed getting to know everyone who is participating.  Reading through your blog posts has been the highlight of my weekends.  I've been lax on commenting, though, and I apologize to everyone for that.

This week, Sally prompted us to think about color.  I couldn't think of anything that really "spoke" to me.  Then I saw this:


My husband's aunt made up a little Easter gift basket for the kiddos.  In it was, among other things, this colorful pinwheel.

The kiddo loves watching this pinwheel on windy days.


Even though it was a bit rainy today, the kiddo and I had fun making the pinwheel spin so I could take a few pictures.


I love the rainbow effect.

Please check out Sally's blog to see the colorful entries of the other participants.
