Mom is Missing!

Week 1 of 52

I have accepted Kathleen's (from Art's Chili), personal 52 week challenge, to get Mom back into the picture. The idea is that once a week you take a picture of yourself. Give the camera to your husband, your kids, the librarian, the ticket taker. Who cares? Just pass the camera off and say, "Cheese!" It's that simple. I shall post my picture(s) for the challenge on my blog once a week typically on Thursdays. I too personally invite you to take the challenge of getting Mom back into the picture!

Me this morning "accepting" the challenge from Kathleen at Art's Chili.

Below is a picture from this week's family vacation. Here we all just came back from swimming. Am I nuts for showing you a picture of me in my swim suit? ...oh yes I say I'm completely nuts!! Happy Thursday!


  1. Not nuts at all!!! Have you seen some of the pics I've posted??? My shining moment was the week I was sick with a deathly migraine and my family posted a series of pictures of me dead to the world under the influence of some very powerful shots. Down the road, no one cares what you looked like, they will just remember the great time you had swimming together. Great job to take that first step, Amy!

  2. That is a great challenge! Sayin' HI from the #ubp10!!! Hope you get around to meet some new bloggers!

    We homeschool, too!

    Stop in and say HI to me!
