On Wednesday I drove straight from picking up Wendy at Michigan State to the boy's swim lessons at the high school. Since I had my camera with me anyway, it was a good chance to attempt some pool shots. It's... Continue reading

Her coach nick-named her speed demon. On Sunday I dropped Wendy off at Michigan State for four days of soccer camp. Yesterday I heard about the 96W closure just minutes before I had to hop on it - so I... Continue reading

There was ballooning last night. I still have to share last week's ballooning photos (been a little photo lazy lately) but we'll just go a little out of order for fun. It'll do my ocd tendencies some good as it's... Continue reading

In this house, we hit the ground running just as soon as school got out - and last week was the last of the real busy schedule for a bit. This week is very toned down, which is lovely. Sunday... Continue reading

I didn't get home until late tonight and I still have a lot to do before Wendy's confirmation tomorrow - so just a quick share from tonight's flight. We were right above Jerry when he performed a splash and dash... Continue reading

If you can imagine, I come home with hundreds of photos every balloonfest. It takes me a bit to go through them and pick out my favorites. This launch was much more relaxed than our Friday night launch. It was... Continue reading

my photo of Monday night's moon Summer has kicked off with a bang around here, as I had anticipated it would. I don't think we'll see a lull in our summer until sometime in August. Our last day of school... Continue reading

I have journaled for as long as I can remember. I prefer a great stationary/journal store over a shoe store. Without hesitation. For this summer's journal I decided to use the Midori Traveler's Notebook, having been inspired by so many... Continue reading
