August 27: Spider

This morning as John was leaving for school, I saw this spider working very hard to carry something up his silky web.  It looked pretty cool just dangling in the blue sky.

August 17: Happy Anniversary

Happy 49th Anniversary to my mom and dad! I love you!!!
I took this photo at my little brother's wedding this past April.  My dad is not one for formals (lol) and he was out of his tux before the first dance!  I've wondered what my dad said to make my mom laugh so hard, but then he always could.

August 16: Blue Dragonfly

I went out to take a photo of four butterflies fluttering around the zinnias, but they were gone by the time i got out there.  Found this little guy instead.  I didn't have my glasses on at the time, so it wasn't until I opened it up on my computer that I saw his cute smiling face!

August 15: She's Home!

I got my horse today!!!!!  Her name is Chi Chi Rodriguez but I'm not sure I am going to call her Chi Chi.  We will have to see.  We moved her from Irving to Flower Mound Texas (about 25 miles) today. She is so sweet and seems to be very happy in her new home!
I can't wait to ride her!

August 13: Future Docs

I tried to take photos of the meteorites last night - but was NOT successful.
Today I read books about going to the doctor for Community Helpers week at a local preschool.  I took pictures of children dressed up like future doctors and printed the photos for them to take home.  It was so much fun.  This is my favorite photo I took today : )

August 10: ROD

Today is one month since my son's best friend died of an accidental drug overdose.  Just 19 yrs old. I still can't believe he is gone.
Justin, or JRod in high school, and then just ROD in college, was a great kid who never met a stranger.  His smile and sense of humor always brightened the room.  My daughter ordered these bands to give out to friends and family as we struggle with understanding his death.  We love you Justin!
