day 3


for one moment thousands of people turned their faces to look at one thing only.  the moon.  for one short moment we were unified in our efforts.

this boy has set aside all laziness for a few hours a week and shown great determination!  my heart skips a beat watching him go after the ball and skips even faster when he makes contact with the ball. he may never score a goal, but i don’t care.  i love watching him simply play.

it is soccer season! this is our son’s second year playing for the school.  his coach noticed a difference in his  attitude towards the sport. he seems more aggressive and happy to play.  it really showed today.  one of the reasons i bought this new camera was to take pictures of the soccer games, however my zoom lens has been acting finicky.  it will not focus while zoomed out. the above photo was taken with the 55-200mm lens at about 60mm. the below photo was taken at about 150mm. it might be time to replace the lens. 21391031831_488e8b4948_o

spent this hot labor day swimming in a lake.   didn’t last long due to a cranky husband and sick boy.
