Back to school. A week that is always charged with emotions,  some happy like our friend Lisa and some sad like our friend Michele. When I was a young girl, I loved back to school. I couldn't wait to finally get to step outside in my new super hot pink converse high tops that were not allowed to step outside not one day before, period. And I'd spend the night before school tossing and turning wondering about who my locker would be next to or if I'd have to run to catch the school bus. This year I saw a lot of those things in my babes. Jackson actually said, "I get a locker this year, I hope I can open it." And I knew he dreamed about his locker too. There is always something magical about fall back to school. Something hopeful about the start of something new and the excitement learning brings. It's like the beauty of spring, with the cooler temperatures of fall.

We saw some really fun takes on our back to school theme this week. It was great to see the creative things you guys came up with - this is truly a fun group to lead and an even better group to be apart of. Thank you all for the beauty you find in the everyday life we all walk through. On to the top ten. Here we go, in no particular order...

What's new with Daphne Ellenburg?

Well, the big news is that we survived the drama of Hurricane Isaac. We endured 2.5 days of housebound togetherness, and never lost power - but we did occassionally lose internet, phone service and cable. No biggie.  The boys spent most of time honing in on their video game skills. Madison and I played in the studio and watched Sue Bryce on Creative Live. I also finished the last book of the Hunger Games - loved it.

Here's a few from my studio fun with Madison, with my new scarf....

She was so scared that her pearls were going to get tangled in her curls here!

I just like this one, this is her scarf...

And for extra wackyness.....we tried out the newborn nest on her doll with Jefferson's new cheese cloth.

And all that was on the first day of lock down. On the second day, I got bold and started offering haircuts...resulting in a rainy trip to the salon for Grant. Hey, you win some, you lose some. 

Upcoming events...today I go to the Doctor for my 39 week check up. Baby Jefferson is scheduled for induction/eviction next Friday - if he cooperates. And this Sunday is my wedding anniversary....and I selfishly do not want to spend Anniversary weekend in the hospital....so it will probably happen. haha.

Wishing you a Great week filled with Family, Fun and Photography! Make it a great weekend...and Happy Labor day Weekend!
