Theme Thursday: Focus


Focus is such a great theme. In fact, each theme that Tracey (the previous hostess) or Stacy suggest are fantastic themes. There are a thousand ways to interpret focus, which makes is what makes it so interesting. M LOVES to paint. Crayons? Fine. Markers? Better. Paint? Squeals and bouncing for joy. She would paint for hours if I let her. Here she is extremely "focus"ed on her work.

Grab yourself a cup of coffee, schedule a some quiet time in your schedule today, and browse through Stacy's comments. It just might help you find your focus today.

PS: Check out one post below...I'm offering a fun treasure!

Fun shot of her intense focusing. Cute! :) Anya is the same way with paints, it must be their capacity to get really messy. ;)

Yep, it's the mess they love--my 12year old still LOVES painting...thankfully the mess is a bit less now ;)

Sweet shot!

I have a shot of BubTar playing video games with his little tongue sticking out. I love it.

Bonnie said...

Wow ... she really is focused !

Maggie said...

Do you think that she could give some lessons to Garrett on how to focus on something - anything - for a few minutes? She looks like she is pretty good at it, and he definitely has some room for improvement...

great FOCUS shot, natalie! it is something to do with the inevitable messiness of paints that makes every kid scream with glee (and moms groan in anticipation of a mess, maybe?).

Very very intent. What a lovely picture, I like the fact what she is so intent on are red hearts just in time for valentines day. Sweet.

Oh, M....I LOVE to paint too! Once in awhile I brave the mess with my middle school students, and then sometimes I get to paint too. I rarely ever do it on my own though. LOVE the focus face ;)

Very cute! Harrison 'focused' on drawing with a blue pen on our blue sofa. Where was I? Oops.

It'll come out, I didn't even notice - daddy did.

What a day.
