Round Robin Challenge: The End Of Summer

Hi, Robins! It's time to announce a new Challenge, for posting on Saturday, October 4th. This topic, from Janet of the blog Fond of Snape, is one of the oldest in our suggestion pool, and yet it's completely timely for us now, 14 months later. It's called

The End Of Summer

This Challenge Is Now Closed. Thanks For Playing! :)

I'm posting this entry right around the autumnal equinox, literally at the end of summer. Kids are already back in school, and in most parts of the Northern Hemisphere the leaves are about to put on their annual show, changing from green to red and orange and yellow and scarlet.

What says the end of summer to you? Is it watching your kids get on the school bus? Is it the fall colors? A slight chill in the air, or perhaps just relief from summer heat? Putting away the swim trunks or your white shoes, and getting out the jackets and galoshes? Shorter days and longer nights? Whatever it is photograph it for us, or something that represents it; and get ready to post it on Saturday, October 4th, anytime between midnight and midnight.

As always, be sure to check our Welcome Entry and Rules of Play if you're new to this or have sat out a few rounds, or even if you just have a question. You can also reach Carly, Steven or myself at the email addresses on the sidebar. Meanwhile, you know how to RSVP, don't you? Just leave a comment below, looking something like this!

Yes, I'll play!

The Livin' Is Easy

Got it? Good! Now, go be photographers!

Round Robin Challenge: It's Not Easy Being Green

Hello Robins :)This Challenge Is Now Closed! Thank You For Playing. :)

Are you up for a brand new challenge? You are? Cool! How about a challenge titled, "It Isn't Easy Being Green!" Julie, who blogs at, "Julie's Web Journal," suggested it for us, last May, during our last photo challenge round-up. I don't have any specific notes about what she had in mind here, so lets just go wild with this one! Green is the color... imaginations are encouraged to take it and run with it... the sky is the limit! If it is Green, and it inspires you, it's a go. Although as always, keep in mind this is a family friendly project, so consider that when you post your entry. I think this will be a nice way to say goodbye to summer, and all the Green colors that season brought us.

The date of this challenge just happens to be the second to last full day of summer for 2008! Saturday, September 20th, 2008! As always you can post any time during the midnights of that date, but DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY EARLY! We don't add the linking list until the day of the challenge, and you won't be linked to until that time! As my pal Steven says, "It's not a race." So please observe that rule. Ok?

When you sign up to play, please leave your information in the following format...

Carly (Your Name)
Ellipsis (Your Blog or Journal's Name) (The Full Address Of Your Blog Or Journal)

Try to remember, we need your information each time you play, even if you have played before!

Ok, if you haven't played with the Round Robin Challenges before, please take a moment to read the FAQ page. Just scroll down a few entries to find it, or see the link on the sidebar. If you have any questions, please feel free to send an email to Steven, Karen or myself. You can find our email addresses on the sidebar. Be sure to put "Round Robin" in the subject line.

Green is the Color, Saturday September 21st 2008 is the date! See you then!

-Carly :)
