Family of the Week- Part One | Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake Child Photographer

Last week, my five year old daughter, Sylvie, had her family of the week in her Pre-K class.  What that means is that she has the opportunity to share things that we do at home, or what we do for a living, etc.  We did several things.  First we started with a painting project, where each child painted three clothespins… that was the first step for a little idea I had for a wall hanging piece of art (more on this for Family of the Week – Part Two).  Their teacher proudly informed us that they are learning all about what a “process” is and this was part of a “process”- brilliant (who knew?)! The next day, we brought flowers with little vases (plastic cups), and scissors out to the picnic tables, as it was the perfect breezy spring day! I showed the kids how to trim the flower stems and condition them so that the leaves would not ruin the water.  I do this at home all the time because I love and almost always have fresh flowers around.   Recently, I discovered what a fun little project it is for the kids to help (with kid scissors of course- and if the stems are thin enough).

The other thing we did that day was an outdoor mini photo shoot.  Because Sylvie’s mommy is a _________???? (no, they did not answer- CRAZY LADY!!!!) They answered most unanimously, “a FUR-TOG-AH-FUR!!!!”


The children were asked to come to school in something special or something that would make them feel special.  It could be a costume, or a dress, or a hat, or just a favorite shirt.  So, for fun, I have to share some of the kids from that day:
