Amaze . . . and onward

OK . . . once again I am running behind in posting, but I do have some photos to show you!

Amaze - January 5th

after struggling the past 2 years in school, it looks like the little guy is doing much better now.  His Progress Report came home today and it was amazing! (Horrible that I've got that shadow in there. Will try to avoid that next time!)

Animal - January 6th

it was a bitter cold day so I guess none of the critters wanted to come out today.  I waited all day keeping my eye out for a squirrel or two, but none ever showed.  When I knew I only had about 20 minutes of sunlight left, I took a snap of this owl who sits in my garden bed.

Aqua - January 7th

The coloring just wasn't working out for me on this one.  This gem is a really pretty aqua in person that is.  I must of taken 20 shots with different backdrops and lighting and just could get the coloring like it should be.

Architecture - January 8th

This is the celing of the church we attend.  The minute I entered this church some 8 years ago, I thought it was fascinating!  It's a very modern church . . . for a Catholic church that is.  This photo was taken with my Blackberry.

Arranged - January 9th

Thought that dinner arranged nicely in my bowl fit perfectly for this theme.

Art - January 10th

Here's a painting that I did back in 2006 and one of my faves.  It sits above the fireplace in the family room.

Hope you enjoyed your visit.  Can't wait to see more of what you all have come up with too!

Until next time,



  1. Massive leap forward to have posted all these. - Well done!

  2. Glad to see that you've started to catch up, I especially like your painting from 2006.

  3. Congratulations on the achievement card! I see Ivy League in his future. Go Seahawks! ;-)

  4. Great work on the grades! It takes a lot of parent support and time to help a child achieve his potential too!
    Your church looks like it has interesting modern architecture...might want to go back with a dedicated camera and try some more shots! Looking forward to more photos from you.

  5. All of these are wonderful...you did some catching up! :) Congrats to the little guy..those grades are awesome!

  6. Beautiful church. Congrats to your little guy on the great grades!

  7. Great catching up in one swoop -- you are off to a great start! Looking forward to seeing more.

  8. Isn't the shadown on the atellar report card his backpack? To me, it put it in context.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to tell me what you think. Although I may not get back to you right away . . . please know that I do read every comment and appreciate them very much. Hope to see you again soon!
