This is my brother, we were all down at the parade today and they were passing out flags and he stuck his in his hat, thought it was to good to pass up for a mission twenty four picture.
So let's see it! Challenge: PATRIOTIC

My 3-year-old boy is very sick today, and this was his temperature. I REALLY hope it is the limit, because it always scares me when it goes so high. All he wanted to do was snuggle in something soft, and be held by me. It's so hard to see them sick!
I'm visiting my parents for a week and a half right now, and I thought I'd add a little touch of "mom" to my entry today. My mom's love of pink and of fabric know no limit. I often think, however, that my dad would like to put a limit on her love of fabric. This photo is a drawer of pink fat quarters. I don't think this is even all of her pink fat quarters, but I could be wrong. Also keep in mind that this is just the pink drawer, and it's only fat quarters, not larger pieces of fabric.
As always here for more and CC is always welcome!

My daughter apparently hasn't been feeling well this evening. She finally crashed a little before dinner - it didn't even wake her up when I picked her up off the floor and carried her to her bed. Poor little thing, she's reached her limit.

Any entries posted afterwards, will be deleted. Just be aware!

One of the things I hear often is that certain days don't always work for challenges...people work that day or are busy...and quite frankly, sometimes I find myself in a rut of hoping I get to go out and leave my house on challenge dates...so I can get a great shot. And I find I am DISCOURAGED when it doesn't happen.
SO...EVERYONE be on your toes. This week will be full of shakin' things up and mixing them all over the place.
We will contunue with a post each day...
BUT, You don't know when the challenges will be or what they will entail....when the feature photographer will pop up, and when the Tutorial will be presented. SO, be checking. I will make sure that each day we have the post done in the morning...
KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED AND BE ON YOUR TOES!
And PLEASE, after the winners are announced, go in and change your submission to say your name so we can all figure out who did what! :) THANKS EVERYONE FOR PLAYING ALONG!
SO, let's vote! What picture made you feel SUMMER the most? Pick your favorite 2!!!
We will do the big reveal tomorrow....can't WAIT to put a name to all this talent!

One of my favorite things about summer is seeing all the beautiful wildflowers. This picture was taken at dusk in a park near my house. CC welcome!
Summer time means neighborhood block parties, face painting, snocones, and lots and lots of sunshine!
I didn't really get lei'd. I saw these at Joann's last night, and thought "What says 'Summer' more than a luau?" I loved the colors and the outdoor feel.
I'll post more after our big reveals.
EDIT: Okay, it's Janelle. You can see my runners-up (I had lots of them) here.
"You're killing me Smalls! These are s'more's stuff! Alrite now pay attention. First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the 'mallow. When the 'mallows flaming... you stick it on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good"-- Ham Porter; Sandlot
