Here I go again

Friday, July 27, 2012

I know what you're thinking.  
"Here she goes again, getting all snap happy and bogging down the blog with photos."

And you might be right, to a degree.  I have been in one photography class or another since the beginning of June and still have five more weeks in my current class.  And part of my class participation means getting out there and practicing.  Now, I know I can't possibly share every photo I take for my class/es.  But I do have a few that I'd like to share each week because that's honestly how we are spending our summer days.

On this particular evening, we went down to the ball field so Caleb and Patrick could play catch and get in some batting practice. While Caleb practiced his hitting, I spent some time with Madeline on the playground. She wasn't interested in me following her around with my camera, but I did capture some sun flare. 

 Then Patrick helped Caleb practice catching fly balls.
Madeline asked to use my phone so she could take pictures too.  So I complied.

So please pardon me these next few weeks if I happen to share a week bit more than I usually do.

Well, tomorrow is the big waterslide gotcha day/forever family day party.  The waterslide peeps have a busy Saturday planned and asked if they could come tonight and set up early.  Um, that's a no brainer!  Can't wait to get wet and enjoy some bar-b-que pork and all the trimmings!  And I'm gonna do my best to capture the fun in the noon day sun, harsh lighting and all!

For more photo fun, hop on over to Lisa's blog.

the long road

About This Blog

This blog is the place where shared our lives while waiting to bring our daughters Madeline and Havi home from China. (Our son Caleb was already home before this blog began.) It is now the place where we continue to share our life experiences, both big and little, as we try to glorify God and raise our 3 dumplings from China.

Feel free to join us as we journey through life, while I try to capture our days...
