sesameellis The end of May edition of #clovercollects features some lace, a broken hair tie in an alluring colour, bothersome buttons, rocks of course, a rusty little chain and a perfectly pointy stick. #pockettreasures #whatsesamesees 1d
  •   el_hogan Oh man! I take photos of the the things I find in Darcy's pockets too!!! 1d
  •   julietskipperschmidt That could be a very expensive modern artwork! 1d
  •   sesameellis @el_hogan kids are great curators! 1d
  •   sesameellis @julietskipperschmidt it will someday be a book of prints! But only for Clover...it is the only way to get her to toss the stuff is if I photograph it and let her keep the picture! 1d
  •   julietskipperschmidt Clever! 1d
  •   klschaffer5 This is just one more thing sweet clover and Allie share. I had to photograph about 40 stuffed animals that she never plays with just so she would let me give them away. 1d
  •   paolo_vino HA, Vicki does that for me so I will give away old t-shirts that have memorable value but I never wear anymore. Great minds @sesameellis. 1d
  •   dailymeel So cute! I love collecting things. If Clover likes to paint or draw, she can always make still life subjects out if her collection. That way she can "keep" them forever! 20h

sesameellis My photography mentor has passed away. Rest in peace Mary Ellen Mark. Her work taught me to see the subtle details right in front of me, the simple complexity of black and white as well as the joys in keeping these little moments forever through photographs. To the most esteemed visual storyteller, I say thank you... #maryellenmark #inspiration #tribute #iphone 2d
  •   meetookids Hugs. And I love this pic xx 2d
  •   donavanf Beautiful. 2d
  •   iam.juanita I am sorry. Just so you know, secretly, you are one of mines. 23h

sesameellis Quiet mornings. Such a dramatic difference when one child is away. Two more sleeps till we get our Gemma home from camp. #chihuahua #rescuedog #dogsofinstagram #itsamomslife #fattybarkbuckle 2d

sesameellis Brisk morning and Chilli doesn't want to get out of bed. I dragged her nest to the window so she would have something to look at. Hope the tween is warm at camp! Clearly I am needing to channel this surplus of mothering in her absence. #itsamomslife #dogsofinstagram #rescuedog #chihuahua 3d

sesameellis And she's off. I am sure she's having a great time, but I am going to have to get used to her room being empty. #schoolcamp #foursleeps #itsamomslife #selfie #thetweensagem 4d
  •   tarapakosta I always tried to talk mine into camps but nope!!! they cannot sleep away from home. Savannah went once to a one night youth camp trip and totally didn't sleep all night. she did have fun though! 4d
  •   sesameellis @tarapakosta they don't have the option here, they go as part of school! 4d
  •   tarapakosta @sesameellis we did that in 6th grade also when I was growing up. mine probably still wouldn't go and I would back them up if they truly didn't want to just because my fault I've never been fond of sleepovers so we don't allow them so that's prob why they don't want to go! I hope she has aBLAST!!! 4d
  •   cradle_rock Wow @sesameellis I had to look twice o thought it was one of Gemma's friends and her blowing kisses you look 12 ! 3d
  •   sesameellis @cradle_rock you are kind, but that is merely an illusion granted by the low red front facing camera! 3d
  •   sesameellis Res not red!!!! 3d

sesameellis These two head off to school camp tomorrow for a week. I'm so glad to know they'll have each other there because it is the longest either has ever been away from home. It is not going to be quite as bright around here until that bus brings them home again! #whatsesamesees #bffs #photographyoureveryday #itsamomslife #schoolcampeve 4d
  •   clairejmurdoch My boy had his 5 day camp the week before last and it was the longest he had been away. I was a bit of a mess but he had the absolute best time and am sure your girl will too.....and of course it will be even better with good friends! 4d

sesameellis School camp for FIVE days starting this Monday... I'm trying to ignore the outbursts over packing and remember that it is all part of the process. I'm going to miss her laugh and strong personality next week! #whatsesamesees #photographyoureveryday #thetweensagem #itsamomslife #latergram #tween 6d
  •   kittencooper I love this photo! Her expression! Her polka dots! 6d

sesameellis From photography and travel to reading and eating sushi, I'm so proud of my kids when they show an interest in all the things I love. When they raise their voices at each other it makes me remember all the times I have been too quick with my temper at them and I want to be more aware in the moment. Kids take in everything and they are #alwayswatching. What kind of mom do I want to be for them? #whatsesamesees #whatsesamesays #quote 7d
  •   greenvamom My mantra: be the mom she wants to be and the woman he wants to marry. Pretty much sums it up. You are a great mom Rachel. I miss you! 6d

sesameellis The boy loves doing math activities and documenting his experiments. Everyone in the class will get the bag of supplies, list of suggested games to try and the notebook to write everything down...if he leaves them any pages. Such a great initiative from the teachers. I might need to make our own for home as the bag moves on to someone new on Wednesday! #whatsesamesees #lifeinnaturallight #photographyoureveryday #learning #maths 2w
