SoccerFall soccer has started up again.  Audrey chose not to play soccer this year. Maybe one day she will race, but for now, she is happy just to run.

Andrea is playing on a traveling U13 team.  Most of the girls are from her team last year, but she has a new coach and a few new players.  We have watched her new coach and are impressed with what we see.  We also like the improvements Andrea is making.  The best part though is listening to her giggle and watching her smile while she plays.

Box Turtle

Box turtleWhile we were exploring, we discovered an Eastern Box Turtle along the side of a parking lot.  They are endangered in Indiana, and we have not seen one in the wild in years.  We admired this one for awhile before moving it to a safer place near the woods we had been walking in.

On Sunday I took some time just to sit outside and relax. I listened to the children playing and enjoyed the chilly, but beautiful weather. I laughed as the hummingbirds fought over the sugar water. Then I enjoyed a wonderful dinner that Mark and Allan grilled for us.

I am one spoiled girl!

Spider Webs

As Allan left for work, he told me the foggy morning was beautiful.  I went out trying to get pictures of the fog, but discovered huge spider webs in the field.

AnnasmileOn Saturday, I took my camera to the park for practice.  My only goal was to try something different.

Anna is the daughter of one of Allan’s coworkers from a previous job. She is a very talented harpist and we have gone to listen to her play a few times. I always enjoy listening to her.

I practiced my photography on Anna.  She was not as intimidating as a stranger!

Check out Anna’s page. And if you contact her, let her know I sent you.

Husky Pups

The neighbor has two husky pups that like to come visit.  The kids keep returning them, but the puppies break out of their pen almost every day.  They are adorable, so I use them for camera practice.
