Ruby Tuesday Too/Wordless Wednesday

Would someone please tell me where the time goes. Last week our oldest grand daughter celebrated her 21st birthday. That just isn't possible. It seems like only yesterday that she was just a bably.
When did this little bundle of joy...

turn into this incredible young woman. The journey has been remarkable. One one level I would turn back time and watch it all over again, but on the other level, I can't wait to see where her journey is going. Thank you Lord for grand kids. They are a very special blessing.

Awe...some Mondays

Last Thursday was National Puppy Day. Who knew? Well aparently some of my Facebook friends knew and were posting photos of their dogs. So, I took Lucy out on the patio, set her on the box that we store the cushions in and snapped a few images. Since Lucy is a Black & White parti-color Cocker Spaniel, there was no real need for color.

What's not to love about a face like this?

You're only a puppy once, but you can be Awesome for a lifetime!

Awe...some Monday

It's spring soccer season!!! The youngest granddaughter, now fifteen, made the high school Junior Varsity as a freshman. They played their first conference match last Thursday and captured an 8-1 victory.

Here she is passing the ball toward the center of the field, in front of the goal, hoping to assist a team mate for the score. I love watching and photographing this sport at the high school level. Some of these kids are really good. Both the boys and girls local high school teams have won the state championship multiple times. Here is hoping that the grand daughter gets to be a part of that winning tradition.

Meanwhile, it was a long day for the opposing goal keeper. Some days you're the windshield and some days you're the bug.

Wordless Wednesday - I Love Lucy

After nearly thirteen years without a family pet, last Thursday we welcomed Lucy into the home. She is a 10 week old pure bred Cocker Spaniel.

She is extremely smart. She was housebroken within 24 hours. Crate training is taking a little longer, but she is getting used to the notion that it can be her safe place. The first night was tough on everyone but she has been great since then.

There is no hidden reason for naming her Lucy, it just seemed to fit. She is full of energy but loves to spend some quiet time in your lap between her rounds of playing tug-of-war. Yes, puppies can be labor intensive, but the final results of a great companion dog are worth the effort.
It's been too cold and wet here lately to photograph any outdoor spring sports so I turned my attention indoors and Lucy. You can expect more images from the adventures of Lucy in the future. Have a blessed day.
