This morning we braved the mist and rain to venture out to Stella Alpaca Farms.
We met three very friendly Alpacas, and some that were more interested in their lunch.
I bought a pair of fingerless gloves for the cold winter days that are just around the corner.
Hopefully you won’t get sick of seeing these each week. It’s going to be my new photo project – taking a photo of each of the kids on the first day of each school week. It will be interesting to see the changes that occur by the end of the year!
…and sometimes they don’t.
I had my niece and nephew over this weekend for a sleepover. The kids had lots of fun making cards for Papa (my dad had open heart surgery on Friday and is currently doing as well as can be expected.)
There was the usual antics when Teegan and Leila come over – playdoh and slime everywhere, someone sits in green beans (and then steps on them), they stay up way too late giggling. But these are the memories they will remember and I’m glad they have each other, even if they don’t see each other very often.
The first thing Lauren said to me after her hour-long bus ride home was that she got juice and animal crackers for a snack today. The second thing she said was, “Where’s my iPad? I’m tired.” I feel ya, kid! Sixth grade is tough!
Here’s to a great year, Lauren!
We took a walk tonight in between rain showers. Avery and Hannah took turns taking photos with my phone. (Lauren was back on the patio playing with ponies. She didn’t want to get her feet wet by walking in the grass.)
Avery was showing Hannah some of the photos that were taken.
Avery is taking a photo of Hannah.
Hannah is posing for Avery. All in all, they didn’t do too bad. They still have a lot to learn about posing, composition, exposure and focus, but it took me years to get to where I am, and I’m still learning!
I found some presets in a folder on my old hard drive so I thought I would try them out again. I think I like them! #CascadePresets
