it's april 1st and today's weather was a sunny, warm high 60s and such a change from recent chilly, wet and windy wintry weather. it was perfect for being outside, busting out the chalk, playing hide-and-go-seek and of course snapping with my big girl camera. i was asked to be an alumni helper for an online photography course i recently finished, which means i get to help other students taking the class and i'm enjoying seeing so many photographers grow. so i get to practice and share, too. i'm also participating in beth-a-dilly's 365 challenge, but have only just now joined this month. i don't know how long it will last, but i'm aiming for trying out the month of april. just another reason to snap away. my girls are so lucky. i can already hear the grunts and groans.
