#capturingtheday – Week 1 Roundup


Well, here we are. It’s the end of our first week for our new Instagram community linkup called, #capturingtheday which means it’s time for our first roundup!

How exciting!

Thank you so much to all those who joined in. By the end of our first week, we had over 100 photos to choose from so our first fear of nobody joining in was laid to rest at least!


We had so many wonderful photos this week capturing everything from back to school, first day of school, trips out, younger siblings having their first solo day whilst their older siblings were at school and so much more. It’s been magical to see how everyone has settled into their new routines and to hear about how everyone has got on. I chose these photos because, for me, they captured the normal ‘every day’ moments beautifully.

So, without further ado, here are my 4 featured images for this week for #capturingtheday

A bare foot walk along the beach, siblings reunited (with ice creams too!) after the biggest one’s first day of school, the old childhood favourite activity of tree climbing and a walk through the first leaves of autumn…

Congratulations to all of you and thanks again to everyone who linked up.

Do spread the word and join in again this week!

All photos are welcome. Baking, crafts, days out, sunsets, tantrums, well earned nights out for the parents, whatever it is you’ve captured during the week.

 To finish, here is my favourite photo by my partner in crime for #capturingtheday, Yvonne over at Double the Monkey Business


I loved this photo of Yvonne watching her children at football training.

It sums up how many parents spend their afternoons and weekends, stood on the sidelines of various sports facilities (in all weathers!) whilst their children train and have fun.

Well done parents, you all rock.

You can find Yvonne on Instagram, here.

See you all next week for our week 2 roundup!
