Heart Drop

I was simply walking
when I stumbled upon this heart.

I thought to myself how it appeared to be all alone.

Its color ~ deep and rich as it stood in front of everything else in the photo...

and somehow...
it seemed so powerful to me.

Zoo Day

AHHH: the field trip that I try and avoid. The dreaded zoo field trip. I woke with an achy back, a minor migraine, a low grade fever and I am sure it was a psycho-semantic because truth be reminded: I did not want to go to the zoo. But Jenna picked me to go and so as the good mom-I went.

AHHHHHHHHH: the dreaded bus drive to the zoo. This was nearly worse than the entire concept of walking around the normally crowded and hot hot hot day at the zoo while chaperoning a half dozen kids scattering like ants. My lord, a bus driver I could never be....just sayen'!

I only chaperoned Jenna and another little girl--NOT BAD! And we were with three other small groups--again, NOT BAD! Whooooooooo hoooooooo! Except Jenna wanted to be the leader
child while Zariah wanted to hang out towards
the back. It was like watching a tennis match
keeping my eyes on the two guests of the zoo.

There were tons of photos of the animals and Jenna chose these to share on my blog. She called them the Kissing Giraffe & the Laughing Giraffe!

Which is funny because when she was a baby, her Auntie Jenniffer would call her Jenna Giraffe.

Dentist Day

Today was Matthew's very first dentist appointment. He was very excited about the entire adventure especially because he was able to witness three of his siblings have their appointments right before his. Yes, I took four kids to the dentist at 8:30 AM. God Bless the dentist and his staff because we made a ruckus...or two. Right before Matthew was about to get the Panel of his teeth I told him it was like a huge camera. "That's not a camera" I told him it was like a camera... After she was done he looked me square in the eye, "See it's not a camera."
In all honesty, Matthew was such a great patient! Our dentist, Dr. Adam Grant is totally the coolest guy and has such a good time razzing the kids while easing them of any dental fears. With camera in hand, I informed him I needed a picture and he swooped right on in at the perfect lounging angle to match how Matthew was laying in his chair!

Way to go Matthew: No Cavities!

Farmer Journey

I drove passed this farmer and he waved.
I returned the gesture.

I pulled over to the side of the road; took a picture of a tractor out in a dirt field.

I watched this farmer watch me.

It was one of those moments where you wonder, "What is he thinking right now?"

His tractor grumbled passed my car. I waved to him; and he kindly smiled and waved back.

I watched him continue down the road.

I wonder if he had any idea I took this portrait of his journey.

This may not be one of the best photos but it was one of those great moments.

It's A Sign

Yes, quite literally....

Country Ivy

Like I keep sayen'...Things just look prettier when you look at them through old eyes.
I am sure that decades ago this shell of a frame was once clean and bright. I am sure it was a home to a family. A family that tended to the hundreds of acres surrounding this one small building.

I thought it was cool to take a photo of this old place since I have driven passed it about eleven million times.
