First Father’s Day

Father’s Day is a day where we honor dads.  We thank them for all that they do. We can thank any father figure that helps us and supports us. They can be a brother, uncle, grandpa and other male figures.  This Father’s Day was specia because it was the first one for my husband. I have seen my husband grow into fatherhood and it’s amazing how much he has grown as a first time father. When we were planning on a family, I knew that he was scared and didn’t know what to do as a father. But he has grown into being a father and loves our son so much. I have seen him do things that I never thought that he would have. I made a Father’s Day craft with our son for his father and my husband. Below are the pictures that show how I made my husbands first Father’s Day gift. I hope this inspires you.

Poetry about traveling

As we continue writing poems in our kindergarten class, we model poems to our students.  Today we continued writing poems about things that mean a lot to us or are important to us.  Traveling is important to me. I enjoy learning about new places and experiencing new things in different places.  Below are some of my traveling poems that I wrote.

Traveling 

I love traveling.

New places.

New experiences.

New people.

New cultures.

New food.

New scenery.

New roads.

New beaches.

New mountains.

New photographs.

Traveling is amazing.

Cruising is another one of my favorite ways of traveling and experiencing new things.

Cruise

Big boat.

Wide open space.

Gliding on the sea.

Clear skies.

Unplugged from the world.

Entertainment.

Drinks.

Lots of food.

Anchors away.

Sailing away.

Photography Poem

We are writing poems in class with my kindergartens.  It’s amazing to see how these students grew from the start of September to now in June.  We have taught them skills that they need in order to write and they are growing and writing so well.  We used Douglas Forian’s poems as models to help them write their own poems.  As we modeled his poems, we also wrote our own poems to show them that it is not hard to write poems.  My poem was about photography because it is something I love and enjoy doing.  I also love to take lots of photos of my travels as well as important things in my life. Here is my poem on photography.

 

Photography

Capture it.

Click it.

Zoom in.

Zoom out.

Snap it.

Flash it.

Smile for it.

Frame it.

Preserve it.

Keep it.

Scrapbook with it.

Decorate with it.

6 Month birthday photoshoot

6 months is a huge milestone for babies.  Our son turned 6 months a month ago and we have seen him grow in so many different ways. We have learned so much through our sons eyes and we wouldn’t have it any other way.   A 6 month photoshoot for a boy was hard to find.  I searched Pinterest for many ideas and it was difficult.  So what I used was the onesie that I bought him off from Amazon.  The onesie was baseball themed.  I thought that was a perfect theme for our son’s 6 month photoshoot because my husband and I are both huge Yankees fans.  I created a banner that said “6 months”.  I used   http://halegrafx.com/printables/free-printable-baseball-alphabet-banner-pack/ to get the letters for the banner.  Thank you to Kevin Hale for sharing this free printable banner alphabet banner.

We purchased real baseballs from Walmart as props for his photoshoot.  We purchased the baseballs because as our son gets older, we will use them.  I always try to purchase photoshoot props that will be used again for another occasion. Below are some of the photos that I took using the baseballs as props.

It was nice to just let our son explore the baseballs and just watch him explore the baseballs.  I was able to take the photos and he was entertained at the same time.  The last photos were with my husbands Yankees baseball cap.  I wanted to use something that has meaning to us and my husbans Yankees baseball cap was the answer. See the photo below.

I hope these photos inspire your own photoshoot.  Here’s a fun tip: create a photoshoot that have meaning to both you and your husband and vice verse.  It is more fun and a great photograph will allow you to share this with your child.  Happy photoshoot taking. 🙂
