Noah the Leprechaun

Noah wrote a story at school, and it’s too great not to share it. I’m writing it verbatim, spelling and all.

“Noah liked to be a leprechaun, but there was one probloem, he didn’t know he was a leprechaun! Then he recagnized something, well…that looked like gold! Gold! he screamed! It’s here! It was sent […]

I Heart Faces::Sun flare

The challenge this week over at I Heart Faces is “Sun Flare”. I love sun flare! And I love that I know how to capture some!

Today was a gorgeous, sunny day, though still a little chilly. Noah went to a birthday party and got a “lightsaber” bubble wand that he wanted to try […]

You Capture::Red

This should have been an easy assignment. We are red people around here. We have a red wall in our living room. We have tons of red clothing seeing as we’re Badger fans. But I’ve taken pictures of a lot of that stuff before.

I figured I’d show off my latest sewing […]

Fall fun

What a gorgeous day we had around here! I love fall days like this. The sun was warm, there was a great breeze, and I had my favorite subjects to practice on, though they were a bit reluctant at times. I still got some great shots, if I may say so myself!

Look at the […]

Badger game with the fam!

I don’t feel like getting too wordy with this post. I’ll just say that the rain cleared out in time for us to enjoy a dry game. The weather was cool, but warmer than it was supposed to be. And despite spending most of the first quarter listening to Caden whine, we all had a […]

First day of First Grade!

Noah is officially a first-grader now! He was so excited to go to school this morning.

We sent him on the bus, and then Caden and I met him at school to help get him settled in his classroom. He looked a little tentative at his spot at […]

You Capture: Mornings

I’m a bit of a morning person. Okay, not just a bit. I’m a full-fledged morning person. I’m also an optimist for the most part, and somewhat of a cheerleader at work with my patients. It’s kind of, ahem, disgusting.

Anyhoo, my mornings usually start with a view of the first bits […]

You Capture: Play

We do a lot of playing around here. All sorts of playing.

Playing cut-throat Scrabble games (that are much more difficult when you have very few vowels!)

Playing cut-throat Battleship games (under a shelter in the pouring rain!)

Playing t-ball games (with […]

100 Year Storm

Or as we call it around here, Thursday. We’ve had crazy rain storms around here this summer. Up until yesterday, the storms seemed to happen at night only, making for a great summer. But yesterday, the rain started around 8:00 in the morning, and didn’t stop until early this morning. There was a bit of […]

You Capture: Black and White

This week, Beth wanted us to work on some processing to create some black and white shots. I used some shots from our trip to the pool last Friday to play with some Lightroom presets.
