This weeks photo challenge is supposed to be about joy. I think every picture, well almost every picture, I take of my daughter represents some form of joy. Here is a picture I took myself of her with Christmas lights. The night of Christmas I drove around town and through the back roads into the country, showing her houses decorated in brightly colored lights and other Christmas decorations. To hear her gasps and repeatedly say how pretty each house was made my night.
From my family to yours, have a very merry Christmas!
Yesterday my daughter turned 4 years old. I started to get teary eyed thinking that she was going to start kindergarten next year. Then after asking a few teachers, I was reassured that she has another year yet. Still, time has really flown by and she is getting bigger. It’s easy to see that she’s grown a few inches and I can tell just from carrying her that she’s gotten a few pounds heavier.
A good friend of mine made cupcakes for my daughter for her birthday. They looked beautiful and were really tasty! The cupcakes are pretty much a give away on the theme and my daughter made sure she wore her super-girl costume.
Becoming one with the horse is an amazing thing, especially to those with special needs.
This weeks photo challenge is community. What better to show community than pictures of sailors working and living together on board a ship. Over 5000 crew live on board during a 6 month deployment. A carrier has all the essentials to be called a floating city – barber shop, ship store, post office, many gyms, laundry mat, church, and many other things.
This week my daughter’s daycare is having ‘Spirit Week’. Monday was Red and Green day, Tuesday was Ugly Sweaters, and today is Wacky Wednesday. The wearer’s outfit is not suppose to match, so two different socks, polka dot shirt with stripped pants, that sort of thing.
I opened my daughter’s drawers to look for something ‘interesting’ or ‘wacky’. I looked at her and told her she needed to wear something silly today for school. She then helped me pick something out for her to wear – her Supergirl costume with a red tutu. Looks wacky, yet awesome!
