I miss seeing the world through my camera lens.  I haven't picked my camera up much in the last year, since my dad died. He loved taking pictures.  Always told me I was great at it.  Couldn't wait until I started taking them more professionally.  He was my cheerleader with that.  Couldn't quite figure out why I would pay for my kids sports pictures and school pictures when I could undoubtedly take them myself. 

It's been a year and I finally picked up my camera just for the enjoyment of it.  I took pictures of a friend's kids.  I'm rusty.  I feel like a rookie again, trying to figure out the right settings.  But it made me smile to do it again.

New home

We're building our new house. Which is pretty exciting right? Scheduled to be complete by December 11th... With lots of prayers. I haven't quite got excited about the house yet. Even for our first house I never gotten excited during the building process. I think that getting excited over something that could potentially fail was a little scary to me. And that may be the case this time. But the house has started going up, they've already started framing it, and I have to admit, that when I saw all the house being framed I was pretty excited. Maybe more so because I'm excited for it to be complete on time. I mean, talking complete right before Christmas. I want to be moved into my house and settled enough to put up a Christmas tree and enjoy Christmas in our new home.
