the first day of spring break i got sick.
like can't get out of bead with the chills and a fever kind.
but i slept it off in time for the kids to catch it and so now i am hoping they can kick it as fast as i did so that we can at least have a little fun with friends this week!
but for now, i am keeping them home to do mellow activities and trying to make them rest...ha!
with all this time at home, i have a few minutes to write a post that i keep meaning to write.
it's a little tricky and i hope you'll understand.
i joined instagram before i realized that it would become such a social networking deal.
and i do love it.
taking pictures on my phone has really helped me not to have to lug my big camera around trying to adjust settings and getting distracted from the activity at hand.
and instagram is perfect for sharing the photos super quickly with my sisters and freinds.
but as i realized how big it is and how many people are on it now,
(even more now,with the new instagram for android just coming out this week)
my husband and i made an agreement that i'd only be viewable to people i've met in real life and that i pretty much know.
(now, i HAD already friended a couple of people i haven't met....so i guess they can stay :)
he and i have had lots of discussions about this kind of thing and are trying to be wise about how many people can see where the kids and i are eating lunch that day or where we go to school.
this is just our way to have a limit.
we still have this blog.
which takes faith.
and i know everyone may have different ways of trying to set internet boundaries.
nicknames, no names, no pictures of their kids...
i do share that stuff but i respect those of you who decide not to
this is not at all implying that its not safe to "friend" blog friends on instagram.
(i sometimes regret our rule when i see cool blog ladies who want to follow me!)
i am just deciding to have this limit and in doing so i get the freedom not to have to think too much about blocking out locations or other telling signs and can just snap away.
(and if you DO follow me you know that i take a crazy amount of pictures)
so with all that said, here are a bunch of my favorite instagrams from this spring.
after the fact.
thanks for sharing them with me!
ps. did you HEAR that Facebook bought instagram this week too!
i really hope they don't change it much, don't you?
