Puddle Jumpers

I’ve never done it before.  Handed her over to a stranger.  Walked away.  For two hours.  I didn’t quite know what to do with myself.  Felt very strange.  It’s been, wow, a year and 1/2!  I just figured it out to write that sentence!  She’s been home a year and a half.  Still not as long as she was in Russia.






Back to Puddle Jumpers.  I handed her over she went willingly without looking back and she was fine.  She was excited, happy and ready.  She had her 3 other friends with her and felt safe and confident and ready.

Not sure I was so ready, I stayed in the car in the parking lot.

Until class was over and she returned to me!isabella-018

Wishing I was a photographer

play-001I love close ups of kids.

Actually, I’m really in to close ups. 

I wish I had a great camera… any suggestions?

Also for software so I can play with the picture after.  What do you use?
