Games Girls Play

So...I was intending on showing and telling about a rock climbing excursion the kids went on recently. However, when I downloaded my camera card - I found fifty (yes, fifty!) pictures that I did not take. My daughter loves to play with the camera - and really, as homeschoolers we always encourage interests and creativity.

Here is the first photo that really got my attention:

Maybe you can't quite see it, but he is wearing blue pants, as well. My poor Pokey dog must put up with so many trials when he lives with a little girl. He is so patient about it, too. This isn't exactly what a 'manly' dog would wear afterall.

Here he is all tucked into the bed covers. In general, the 'bedtime for baby' game isn't so bad by comparison to the dress-up game.They are certainly two peas-in-a-pod most of the time. This is a shot of them (I actually took this one) filling the bird/squirrel feeder on the front porch. He follows her everywhere.
Then, of course, there were the two dozen of so pictures of this little fella:

Teddy Bear the hamster has only been with us for a few weeks (the results of a shopping trip with daddy and no mommy supervision!). It was just the other day Duck suggested that if her dolly clothes fit Pokey, maybe her barbie clothes would fit the hamster - that idea was quickly squashed!

Finally, what's a day with mom's camera without a self portrait?

Ah, little girls have great imaginations!

For more show and tell, see Mary!

I love it!!!! Our litte Boston Terrier ( now deceased) was always the target of pink and fluffy stuff and now the gals dress the cats. The animals seem ever so patient with their fate!

What a wonderful creative avenue your dd was allowed to have. I loved the pics you shared. Thank you. [0=

Those photos are so cute! My kids love to play with my camera too. What better way to encourage the creativity?

That's great! I've had that happen to me too. You never know what pictures might turn up, huh?!

I love it! Makes me wish I could get a dog for my kids! You have a cute daughter too.

She did a great job with her pictures. What a cute dog. He is a champ to put up with being dolled up so!
