Theme Thursday - Recess

For most of us in this household, recess means jumping onto the computer and checking emails, oh and probably some blogs and maybe some facebook, too.  For a few others, recess means continuing on in a good book.  For this fella', recess still means play time.  More specifically, it means, "Yes, I get to dump out all my Legos all over the floor, AGAIN!"

My son asked me why I was taking this picture so I told him why.  His response?  "But recess means to play outside!"  

My response?  "But you rarely go outside during 'recess'."

"Oh yeah."

By the way, I love theme words like this because they can take on so many different interpretations!  

 Definition of RECESS
: the action of receding : recession
: a hidden, secret, or secluded place or part
a : indentation, cleft <a deep recess in the hill>
b : alcove <a recess lined with books>
: a suspension of business or procedure often for rest or relaxation <children playing at recess>

My first thoughts, and subsequent picture, were based off of the #4 definition.  It wasn't till I was finished that I thought about the various possibilities of definition #2.  It wasn't till I copied and pasted the above definitions that I even thought anything about definitions #1 and #3.  I am so looking forward to which definition people turned into photos!!!

God Bless!


  1. I love the color filter. And the lighting, if that's just how your living room is lighted I am jealous. He is so intent on his Legos and he's still learning during his recess!

  2. Ooooh. I would like to try out number 3 now as a challenge. Love the legos. =)
