Wordless Wednesday (Blue Eggs and Pinwheels Edition)

<em>Leap Into Spring!</em> Photo Challenge”></a><br />

<span style=

This is week two of the "Leap Into Spring" Photo Challenge. This challenge has two choices of prompts for each week. This week, the choices are Easter and Eggs. These are two choices that I found a lot easier when my children were younger!

I fully admit that I created this little Easter/Egg-themed image tonight, nine days after Easter.



BUT one thing we all need to keep in mind long past Easter is the fact that more than five children die every day as a result of child abuse.*

Did you see that blue pinwheel in the "Easter/Egg" picture? During the month of April, blue pinwheels represent prevention of child abuse. Patches of blue "pinwheels for prevention" are popping up all over our town (read more about Florida's efforts here).

Thanks "Easter Bunny," for bringing me a pinwheel so I can show my support of Pinwheels for Prevention.

Thank you to Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia of Project Alicia, and Rebecca of Bumbles and Light for hosting this challenge. The challenge will run from April 6th – May 18th and is open to everyone regardless of geographic location, skill level, time commitment or camera equipment. Simply stop by each Friday and share your favorite images inspired by the weekly prompts. It is going to have freebies, prizes and photography tips galore!

(Next week's theme is Blossom/Trees. The linky will be up on Friday, April 20)

You are such a GOOD person. And such a wonderful example for me. Thanks for sharing this. I seem to be stuck in the parenting rut right now and am not up on all of these important tidbits. And thanks for the continued support through our challenges! Appreciate it!
