7/52 | portrait project

Week 7 of the 52 portrait project created by Jodi at Practising Simplicity. The idea is simple: one portrait of each child, once a week, every week, in 2014.

This week it is finally feeling like spring might be near. We went on a long hike on Monday and spent Tuesday afternoon in the driveway.  He likes to skateboard up and down our slightly inclined drive in one straight line. He stops at the bottom, turns the board around, and goes back in the same line. He's slow and careful and deliberate. It is so him.

She rides her bike in clockwise circles around the center of the driveway. The pedals have been removed so she pushes off with both feet, balances for awhile, and then pushes off again. She has a knack for circling right in front of him as he's slowly coasting down the drive on his skateboard.  It took awhile and was very frustrating for him but they finally figured out the timing so that they could both do their thing.
