Life at 16mm

Today is the first day of our spring break.  And we have planned a whole week crammed pack with a lot of NOTHING!
Sweet blissful nothing.
No trips, no packing, no hurry-up-and-get-in-the-car!  Of course that means no beach.  No trips.  No visits.  No I-think-this-is-the-best-day-ever!  But I'm okay with that.  There's a season for everything, and this week is gonna be all about down time, (with a little bit of closet cleaning thrown in, but don't burst their bubble and tell them just yet.)

There's been a lot of going-to's going on around here lately.
Going to Mexico
Going to San Diego
Going to Pennsylvania.
And the thought of scheduling another thing made everyone a bit nauseous.  So here it is 10:41am.   Of the 4 of us left in the house, 2 have clothes on and 2 are still in jammies.  I'm one of them, and it's divine.
I had someone ask us while we were speaking in Pennsylvania about our typical daily schedule.  Maybe I should write that down for y'all?  Busy makes me sad.  I don't thrive there well.  And I don't think the children or the family does either.  At least not long term.   Some busy is good.  A season.  A day.  Learning how to cope and thrive there is good too.  But long term, it's just not where I want my family to be.  I want them to have time to play and think and pray and give and serve and love and discover and be.  And that's a lot of things already without throwing in busy on top of it.
We started our day off with some silliness.  'Cause sometimes I think good days start off that way.
That's as close as I got to getting a pic of the man child at 16mm.  I guess when one is 15, 16mm isn't that silly?  15 always throws me for a loop in this house.  3rd time around, and we're still trying to figure 15 out.  Go figure. 

Playing around with 16mm.   It's like living in a fun house!
Well I'd better get dressed before someone unexpected comes to the door.
That always happens.
Too late.
I've been found out.

ps-I should clarify that all these photos were taken with my 16-35mm lens, at 16mm.  It is a FUN lens and really does some crazy distortion when it's this wide!


  1. I think I want a 16mm! Soo fun!

    1. I should clarify that this is my 16-35mm zoom, but cracked all the way to 16mm for all these. It is SO fun!

  2. Would the 16-35 be a good second lens to go along with the 50?

    1. It really depends on what you're using it for, Debbie. If you were looking for a great landscape lens I would definitely recommend it. I got mine mostly for vacations and taking pics or landscapes and architecture.

  3. 16mm is like looking at pictures from the fun house!
