Big things happened this week. It wasn’t a lost tooth or learning how to ride a bike, but it’s about that big of an accomplishment in our family. Lacey can jump up to the shed from the trampoline. We are all proud.
I’m making a point of taking photos each day now. Fortunately, my kids are used to me doing this and are pretty patient about having them be my test subjects to try out new things, even if it’s seeing how the light in the shade is different. We tried out a few spots and the front porch was deemed best.
Zoe can’t help saying hi to Kena, since she’s down at dog level.
I have two goals for taking photos every day. One is to learn, try, and discover purely for improving my photography. The second is to remember. This jump roping event happened sometime this past week. I had already forgotten about it by the time I went to choose my favorites for the week! It makes me happy to have one or a few photos from every day to look back on. Incidentally, a more artsy thought about this photo is that, although I didn’t plan it, the way the colors went together (red-green-blue) turned out pretty cool!
Rollerblading isn’t old yet. It’s harder to rollerblade in the country, since the roads are rough. Before we cleaned out this barn, it was mostly done in the house.
I’m really surprised Zoe didn’t jump up to get her share.
Lacey has begun to master the flip and now she’s spinning.
We love soccer. I was all about volleyball when I was a kid, but now I kind of wish I’d done soccer instead. I get my second chance to do that with the family though.
This is 4H life. Man, pigs are so funny to watch run around.
That dog. She chewed up the lenses out of my sunglasses and Jema found the frames. She’s already smart enough, but now she looks even smarter with these on.
We all know that dandelions are weeds, but they are just so darned pretty sometimes, especially when they are glowing in the sunset.
