Proud Moment

Mike had a proud parent moment last week when he watched Sebastian doing this.

New Lawn Mower
Cutting The Grass
Lawn Boy

Sebastian pitched in to help with the lawn because Mike is nursing a nasty foot sprain.  Sebastian did a nice job for his first time.  Thanks Seb!


A very cool thing happened this morning.  I found out that one of my photos was selected in a contest by The Pioneer Woman.  She has a fabulous site filled with stories about her life on a ranch raising four children with her husband.  It includes her photography, recipes and daily musings.  She often has photography contests with a theme.  This week’s theme is “flowers”.  I submitted this photo of Sophia holding pretty blue forget-me-nots.


There are usually 5 or 6 groups of photos chosen for the week. A number of finalists are chosen from those groups.  A winner along with runners-up are selected.  I’m not sure that I will make the cut.  There are some AMAZING photos posted, but it is fun to see one of my photos in amongst those from some very talented photographers.  I had another photo selected last May in one of her contests.  You can see the post here.  I didn’t make it to the finals, but it was an honor to be chosen. 🙂
