Break Time...For the Computer

...not for me. I am taking a blog free month. I will be back mid-September. We are making a move and I am busy, just busy enough that I don't have time to put things down here. I will blog when I return with pictures of our new home, the work we have done, and the whole wonderful story of how it all worked out. I will still pop in to read other's blogs!

Till the Fall! Blessings!

No Longer Littles....

I was going to join Kaitlin at for her blog challenge. I had ideas and great plans. Even though this is a very busy time for us, I wanted to do this photo challenge. However....

My subjects aren't being cooperative. And I don't have time just now to seek out some who are. My teens both laughed when I begged them. Yesterday's challenge was 'pretend'. "Stand here," I said, "Pretend you enjoy me doing this." They wouldn't!

Aah well. So there you have it Kaitlin. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak!" But I will eagerly watch to see beautiful photos of my grandchildren from day to day!

Yesterday's photo challenge was 'silly' and I couldn't find any pose that worked for two teens to describe silly. However, today is 'Happy' and that we accomplished!
Happy certainly describes how this boy feels when he is spending time with his hamster. The first furry pet he has ever owned following a large assortment of frogs, snakes, and lizards...uh, geckos. Every evening just after supper Henry the hamster wakes from a day long sleep and is more than ready for some fun!

Probably Crazy!

I am probably crazy to add one more thing to my life this month. With all that is going on in August I still decided to try my hand at Kaitlin's photo challenge which you can find here!  Today's challenge is "hands" and I have held a lot of little hands over the years. I no longer have little hands to hold at my house unless the grandkids are visiting, but I do have some long fingered boys here who 'willingly ???' allowed me to take a picture just before they went off to bed tonight.

God made each of us with amazing detail right down to the hands that are able to do so much. There are some pretty amazing muscles and tendons, and a lot of veins that make up these unique apendages! I am excited to think what great changes these 4 hands will make in the world as these young men grow up and meet life's challenges!
