Baby Isla

At a recent guild meeting I won a one year pro subscription to Animoto. So here is a recent client’s slideshow. I can’t share it with her yet though because She hasn’t picked up her canvas yet (the very last image). When she does, I’ll be able to post this to my website and Facebook. I just don’t want to ruin the surprise for her. Since I’ve never really told any family, friends, or clients about this side blog, I don’t really have any worries that she might see it. I’m just so excited about it I can’t wait to share it with someone.

Photo of the Day – March 24

I love wildflowers, especially flowers that find the most unlikely places to grow.

Catching Up

Has it really been two months since I blogged? I feel so lazy. Truth be told though, I’ve been super busy. Teaching has been an adventure, to say the least, and I find it hard to keep up with grading all the projects. Currently, I’m on spring break and I still have 160 projects and 110 quizzes to grade. Here are some of my Middle school and Elementary school students’ work.

In addition to my busy school schedule, I have to mention that my photography business has really picked up. I have a wedding, a new born session, a maternity session, an album design, and three religious ceremonies that all need edited and uploaded by the end of next week.

And with all that on my plate, I’m taking tomorrow off to take my son to the zoo. It’s been raining the last few days and tomorrow’s forecast is 75 and sunny, so we’re taking advantage of it.

Speaking of my son, he’s growing like a weed. He’s 18 months old now, weighs over 25 pounds, and is about 34 inches tall. He is super smart too. He’s running now and his vocabulary is ever increasing. He’s become obsessed with the show Little Einsteins. So obsessed in fact that he wants to watch the shows over and over, all in a row, and he starts crying when each episode ends. He’s also learned that he can watch it on the computer and if he clicks the mouse the next episode starts.

He’s still very active though. We think it may be time to buy him a riding toy.

He still loves to read too. We’ll go through his entire book collection (30-40) three times before he gets tired of it.

He has a thing for trains now too. We had to pry him away from this set at Toys R Us (resulting in a complete meltdown), but we did surprise him with his own train set when we got home. He’s played with it for hours on end and takes the engines with him everywhere.

All in all, this has been a very full two months.

Since we’ve been traveling I have not had internet connection to post my Photos of the Day. Now that we’re home I’m catching up.

Happy New Year!

2014 is here and I hope it brings glad tidings. My faith and patience were tested a great deal in 2013. I pray that 2014 will be a healthy, happy, and prosperous year for me and my family, and yours as well. So, with it being 2014 now, here is this year’s first Photo of the Day. My one year old son refused to go to bed and stayed up to welcome the new year with me (my husband went to bed at 10).

Photo of the Day – Nov. 5th

Today’s Photo of the Day comes from one of my favorite places. I love sitting under the old live oaks. They are my favorite part about living in the south, ok, no snow is my favorite part. But the trees are a close second.
