Family time watching our local arena football team! I love supporting local events in my community! I hope this is something that lasts; our community definitely needs it.
…can stop anytime now. Like today, for instance. I do not do good in Winter, and it gets worse every year.
Yesterday I had such an emotionally stressful day, on so many levels, that I sat in my bath this morning, crying uncontrollably, for 20 minutes. Then I had to go to a funeral.
Before it got to that point, though, I thought some camera therapy would help with the sadness and depression I woke up with.
I was wrong, but here are the results of my well-intended efforts.
As much as I complain about Michigan (and I do; a lot!), there are definitely so many beautiful things that come with living on Lake Michigan. I am anxiously waiting for the leaves to start turning, (some already are), and then my camera and I will be taking daily road trips.
It has been unbearably hot and humid here.
Since I have been awake since 3am, which seems to have been my routine for more years than I can count, I figured it was a perfect day to get out and get some pictures. My favorite pictures have to be nature coated with dew, and wildlife, of course.
As much as I like these pictures, I certainly hope tomorrow finds me sleeping in. May you have a beautiful day as well!
If you live in Michigan and have children in school (public or home), then you are surely familiar with the new standardized testing for Michigan called MStep; formerly the MEAP test.
Oddly enough, out of my four daughters, and the youngest three are still at home, they are all doing the MStep testing right now. Kendall is in 11th grade, Erin homeschools 8th grade, and Cassidy is in the 5th grade. All of the possible grade years that you would get tested in.
Since Erin homeschools, her testing took place in a local hotel about 20 minutes from us. While she started her testing, I hit some local parks to get some pictures, and then started reading a book while I waited for her to finish up. She has testing tomorrow as well, and then 3 days next week.
Some of the sights I captured today:
