Quail, Snakes and other things you don't want in your house

It's true Chan found a small quail and brought it in the house to show me how "Cute" it was. A few weeks ago it was a garden snake. I have 3 boys and none of them wanted anything to do with critters until they were in Jr High. Maybe by the time she's in Jr High she'll grow out of it? I can only hope. I feel as if we run a zoo now. She wants to keep everything as pets but we tell her they all get to live outside - out of cages so they can visit their families, how much longer you think she'll buy that one?

My Boys' Idea of a good time

Bungee Jumping..................... They did not get their thrill seeking adventure from me. NO WAY EVER. Not at sunset, not on my anniversary, (sorry Vin I love ya but not going to happen) not even 20 years ago in my wild years NO NO NO. I will not.

Next Mile Stone Please

Chan convinced her dad to take off her training wheels and off she went. She always seems to be a step ahead of the game. She is growing up too fast.

The picture of her at the park is one of my favorites that I have taken all summer. She poses for every picture so I have to put the camera down so I don't have a camera card full of cheesy photos, which are cute but candid is precious. Here she is just relaxing by the water twisting to ask me a question and I shoot. I love it.

Summer Time, Baseball and Dreams

I love Summer evenings sitting in a ball park with the huge overhead lights on, sitting in the bleachers, the crowds all cheering for their teams. I have very fond memories of growing up and playing softball, playing under the lights, the cheers, the evening breeze, the competition, and feeling you belong to a team with an important purpose, all working together for the win, there is nothing like it. My son Devin plays Base Ball it is his dream to play professionally when he "grows up" He has played for the last 5 years. This year he is on a comp team and is loving it. As I watch his focus and determination I see my little boy growing into the man he will become. Dreams are very powerful, he has the whole world at his feet. Its amazing to watch him chase his dream and do what he loves to do.
