APR 28, 2009 - New (198)

My older son (8 yrs. old) came home and said that he had taken a walk to see baby owls, at school. Of course, I was intrigued. So he and his teacher were nice enough to show me where they were so I could get a pic. My younger son went with us. He has just gotten glasses, but he didn't have them on. When we got home, I asked him how did he like seeing the owls. He said that he didn't see anything, just a glob of white. I was so sad. I showed him the 8 X 10 I made of this for his teacher. He said the photo was much better than real life, but, really, those owls were so cute. I wish he had seen them.

APR 26, 2009 - The Band

I have to say, I love, today's, photo. My husband has played in a band for many years, and I don't have very many pics of him in action. My neighbor was nice enough to watch my kids for a little while, last night, so I could snap a few shots. OK, so I danced once, but most of the time it was all about business.

Also, I would like to give a shout out to Bethany the proprietor of Elegant Word Art. She made me a beautiful, new, signature for my photographs. She gives away plenty of free word art, so if you do digital scrapbooking, she's a great find.

And finally, I want to let everyone who checks my blog know that I will be posting every other day from now on. I am going to check other blogs on the days that I don't post. I have to lessen the load. I am really excited about the change though, because I know that this will, really, make it easier for me to keep on snapping!

APR 22, 2009 - Places of Worship (269) - Mission Santa Inez

This Mission has a wonderful, outdoor, Stations of the Cross.

The circle that you, occasionally, see on my photos is a dreamstime watermark. These photos don't have a watermark, but you can see the same watermark on the photos from the April 14 post.

APR 16, 2009 - California Missions - Old Mission Santa Inez

I went to the Mission in Santa Ynez, yesterday. It is a small Mission. It, evidently, is only open on Sundays, so I didn't get to go inside, but the views from the grounds were beautiful. They look like they will be a good submit for the challenge this week. I'm posting this a little early, because I know I will be busy, tomorrow.

Challenge: Lines

APR 14, 2009-Weights and Measurements (355)

This is an educational toy that I used with both my boys. You can use it to teach color, weight, addition, subtraction, sorting, etc. I think I liked playing with it more than them.

I'm sorry if I messed up the feeder, yesterday. I was messing around with some older posts.

April 12, 2009 - Easter

This is my Easter tree. Each ornament has a name on it, and we put an ornament on each day. We pray for that person, especially, all day on the day we put the ornament on the tree.

APR 9, 2009 - Big Events (6)

My kindergarten son won a speech contest in October at his school. He dressed up as Jesse Owens and gave 3 minute, memorized speech as if he was Jesse Owens. The principal of his school requested that he say the speech again at a school event. The principal gave us less than a weeks notice, so I was less than enthused. I didn't want to put the pressure on him to learn the speech again in such a short time. I didn't say no at first, but after I talked it over with my husband, we decided to decline. However, my son's teacher had asked him directly, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. I didn't want to help him learn it, so he asked me to print it out, and he read the speech over and over on his own. He learned it again, and he performed it perfectly at the event. I was so proud of him.

Just as the principal was singing his praises after he sat back down with us at a big table in the front, he let out the biggest BURP, then he started to laugh. (He claims it was an accident, but I don't believe him. He just learned to burp and he does it ALL the time.) Then, my husband started to laugh. Then, my other son started to laugh. No one else was laughing--just them. Eventually, I gave signal to my husband make a run for it, but my husband was really slow to get the hint. The whole thing was really funny and embarrassing, at the same time.

I can't think of how to fit it into a theme, but I like the photo, so here it is. I always love it when I can see the moon in the daytime. I also just happened to catch a bird in the shot, which I thought was cool, too.
