I don't know why I've been hiding. I've been in a weird sort of place the past few weeks. I'm just not ready to talk (ah..type) about it quite yet. But soon. Maybe. At any rate, I sure would appreciate some prayers.

We're enjoying the last few days of summer time together. I've spent lots of time in my classroom the past few days: organizing, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, organizing, cleaning. Well, you get the idea. It's good for me to purge. I had so much I didn't use and so much that isn't really useful in kindergarten that I had in second grade.

Tomorrow we're going on a field trip with a few other families to a local peach orchard. The day is totally dedicated to M. I planned on being in my classroom every day this week, but she's needing some serious Mama time and I'm giving it to her. I'll post pictures tomorrow when we get back, PLUS the give-away**. I promise.

I just finished taking a wonderful photo editing class. I'm SO excited about all the wonderful things I learned. I love taking pictures and I love, love, love learning more about editing and how to make my pictures special for the ones receiving them.

**The give-away. Let's talk about this a little bit. When I post tomorrow, I'll give you a picture of what you'll receive if you win. Moms of boys, I'm sorry, but this is a really girly give away. Not that I've said that, it would make a wonderful, thoughtful gift for someone. So, everyone come back and tell a friend to check back tomorrow. I'll give all the details then.

I hope all is well with you, my friend. I have a lot going on right now as well - and while I still post on the blog since it's my "escape" there's a lot that's going un-said. Have a wonderfully peachy day today! And, that photo is exquisite. You've clearly picked up some great tricks!

Sorry you've been in a weird place. Have fun today!

Prayers for you my friend.

Hope that you all had a wonderful time at the peach orchard -- that sounds like a fun time!

Nat, I hope everything is ok...I gather that it isn't really. Please do not hesitate to give me a call if you need to chat.

Hope you and M enjoy the last few days of summer. Those photos of her really are spectacular!!!

Much love, my friend.

What has happened to me? I have missed all these posts???? I LOVE this photo. Glad to hear the course has been useful. Wish I could be bothered to take one :-)
