Being on leave and substitute teaching the last year and a half, I have adopted a phrase I use with students: I am a direction follower. Now, I say this in reference to the sub plans that the classroom teacher has left for me. I say this mainly when the students are questioning something I ask them to do. Often times I will actually read the directions in the plans so students know I am following their teacher's directions.
As it turns out, I am not really so much of a direction follower - not when it comes to this first week of participating in 52 Linked. The directions are simple...
1. Take photos throughout the week to frame your interpretation of the week's theme.
2. Post on FRIDAY (photos/text regarding the week's theme of course).
So this week's theme, mother, I posted three days early. And although today is indeed Friday, I am posting regarding last week's theme. I couldn't help myself; the theme for last week is TREES (I love trees). I have always wanted to gather a few of my favorite tree photos in one place... and since I didn't have my new camera last week... and I didn't join this project until this week... here are few photos from the recent past.
I swear that next week I will fall in line. My new camera is do to arrive any day - just in time for next week's theme.
