52 on Friday: Innocence

This week's theme was innocence.  As a teacher I see children lose their innocence faster and faster with today's technology, tv shows, and music.  It makes me sad to see kids that don't want to play and have no imaginations.  Kids that you give a tub full of blocks and they look at you like you're crazy.  It makes my heart smile to spend time with my niece who still thinks she is a full out princess (or butterfly, depending on the day!) Next, check out liza hall and see how she interpreted the theme.

52 on Fridays: Fresh

Well, with school starting next week I instantly thought fresh crayons :)  I think there is almost nothing better than opening a fresh box of crayons.  It just smells like a fresh start!  On my way to take pictures at school I saw that the fresh corn stand I always go to was open.  My crayon picture taking adventure quickly turned into a freezing fresh corn adventure.  Always delish!  Next, check out Faye Kingston, Miramichi, NB Photographer, and see how she interpreted fresh!

52 on Fridays: Symmetry

I was totally stuck between two pictures this week and they are both very different.  Immediately when I heard symmetry I thought of flowers.  Unfortunately, it's been hotter than a pistol here and the only flowers I haven't killed are my violets.  Then, on my way inside our door caught my eye.  It's pretty much the fanciest thing in this fixer-upper of ours :) Next, check out the talented Robin Moore.    

Also, on a totally unrelated note, I was working on getting things ready for my upcoming school year, and one of the things I worked on was coming up with a better way to teach my students rotational symmetry.  I swear the only symmetry I learned in school was the lesson with the dotted lines (how many ways could you fold it?!?)....
