Photographer in the family...and it is not me!

We have a blooming photographer in the family...and it is NOT me! I am enjoying the new camera (a Nikon D90) and I have really taken some decent pictures, but Russ is really finding his groove! He's been doing a lot of experimenting with the camera settings as well as with photoshop for editing, and some of his pictures are looking pretty darn good for an amateur. Thought I would share some of my favorites with you. They are below.

We've set up a photoshop website with photo albums/galleries in it. You can access it at:

I actually took the picture...Russ made it amazing using photoshop

Mission Accomplished!

Well, we did it. We made it through a year of Kindergarten successfully! Whoo Hoo! Congratulations Kelsey & Ethan! I think that both of them really blossomed this year and both are looking forward to first grade, which to their delight includes music time as well as lunch in the cafeteria. I hope they are still as enthusiastic about school 4-5 years from now. Report cards came home and both had 'Mastered' the majority of the subjects listed and all the sub-categories. I'm so proud of them! Both are reading at a 1st grade level or higher right now also. So they are ready for 1st grade indeed. The last week of school included Kindergarten graduation program, Kindergarten Field Day, and Kindergarten Carnival. Here are a few of the best pictures from some of those events.
