I got out in the yard this weekend and practiced a little with my camera. Luckily, this one usually wants to get her picture taken. I also spent some time with my camera manual. What a difference. I thought I needed a newer, better camera, but what I really needed was to study. Now, this is not a great picture, but I love it so much.

So, this fall I'm dedicating myself to practice. I'm going to practice and study with my camera, my knitting needles, and yoga.

Somewhere between work, soccer, dinner, and dishes.

tree tops

Sometimes we forget that people travel a great distance to do the things that are in our backyard.

summer camp

Apparently the boy had the best week of his life at biology field camp.

roaring run

I haven't had time to take a breath lately. Every time I turn around the dishes are piled high and there are bags of wet towels that have been sitting for too long. It hit me this week that we don't have much time before school starts, so we had lots of lake days and ice cream.  We went on a grand hike with friends at Roaring Run. John was the oldest kid along, and he kept trying to sneak into the fast moving water. My friend Anne took some pictures of the kids. It was a gorgeous hot day, and the kids picked wineberries and put their feet in the icy cold creek. Ruby stripped down to her underwear and got in a pool until her head hurt from the cold.
