Our porch corner birds are back!!!


Mana decided that she wanted to try her hand at tennis. Both her grandfathers play or have played tennis. She is looking forward to getting on the court with either of them soon. This was her second lesson with the home school group. She really enjoys it. Her face lights up when she is about to go to tennis lessons. Here are some pics from today.

Love them! It makes it fun.
Her lesson was on the spectrum today.

Weekend Fun!

This past weekend, we headed down to my sister's house to attend my niece's birthday party!! She is turning 11 next weekend. She had a bowling party! All the girls had lots of fun. I was going to bowl also, but left my socks at the house. Maybe next time. I did not take many pictures with my own camera because I was to busy taking some with my sister's. I have never shot with a canon before and thought I would try it. Let us just say I was lost with all the menus. I have not seen any that she or I took with her camera, but I am looking forward to it. Here is the only one that I got of Mana with mine.

Science is FUN!

One of the advantages to homeschooling is that I get to be there to do fun science projects with Mana! We had the best time today. She started the chapter on Light. We talked about translucent, transparent, opaque and shadows. Here are some of our pictures from projects in her science book...

My 38th!!

Most women I know do not like to tell their age. That does not bother me that much! So I turned 38 yesterday!! It is nice to know that everyone this year was celebrating on my birthday even though they might not have known it!! I love when my birthday falls on Labor Day!! The weekend started off well with the hubby off work, barbecue and Alabama football with family, a photo shoot and lunch with my friend Sherry! Then, I come home to my hubby with a stomach virus. I was about to call a redo for my birthday weekend!! My dad came up to visit me for my birthday and helped fix the lawn mower and cut the grass since Brian was sick. Mrs. Jean and I trimmed bushes. Thanks Dad & Mrs. Jean!!! We got a lot done!! So that made things better! It does not look like I live in a jungle now. Brian felt better on Monday. My sweet daughter made me an artist cat, card and decorated the house with streamers! Very festive. We had pizza and watched television all day! Just a nice relaxing day! Just what I needed. Plus I had several call and sing Happy Birthday!!

High School Senior Photo Shoot

Sherry asked me to help her on a photo shoot on Sunday. We were to take pictures of a high school senior at the gardens. I thought I set my alarm when I went to bed the night before. I woke up at 5:30 am to let the dog out and found out I did not set the alarm. So I set it. Then I woke up late. To find out, I did not turn it to ON. Thank goodness I was only 10 minutes late!! I arrived at the gardens and Sherry handed over the camera to me. We took turns through out the whole shoot. We had a bunch of fun and worked really well together. I miss doing photo shoots with her. We have both been so busy here lately! So here are a few of my favorites from the day....
