A Challenge

Setting Sun

A challenge was issued by a good friend of mine on Facebook, to take a picture of what made me happy today. I didn't get the message until later in the evening as I had been out all day running errands. So I had to think, what had made me happy that day???

I took my oldest daughter to school this morning and she is still adjusting, so it wasn't really easy to leave her. Then I went in to work for a little bit. I noticed on my way to work what a BEAUTIFUL day it was (I was REALLY wishing that I had the day to just go out and shoot.) I then spent the afternoon with my son, and youngest daughter. We picked Stacey up at 3, and went to visit some friends.

I had a very busy, but very happy, day. SO what to take a photo of? The kids? Too cliche. I was running out of time and options. Well I had one more errand to run, so I decided to take the camera, take a few minutes to myself, and just go somewhere and shoot. I can't remember the last time I was able to do this, and I was starting to have serious camera withdraw! But that is how I got my photo. The thing that made me happy - Being able to spend a few peaceful minutes doing something I love.

1 Down 1 To Go - This Year

Today was Stacey's 1st day of school. Brandon doesn't start until next week.

She was really excited about starting school, but did NOT want her picture taken.
I told her that it's the first day of school it's mandatory!!!!

1st Day of School

1st Day of School

It's amazing the difference a few hours makes. On the way home she actually asked to have her picture taken!

1st day of School

She got a "Super Star Student" sticker, so after taking her picture I asked her to turn so I could get a shot where you could see it. Of course she had to look at it.

1st day of School

I'm so proud of her!!!

We were out at my parent's house yesterday when I got this shot of Maddie. I just can't get over how blue her eyes are.
