Learning to Use Lightroom...



I am trying out the new-est photoshop invention called lightroom. It is really cool. You can try it for 30 days for free by downloading from the Adobe site. It can do some neat stuff! It's not too hard either- and you can get lessons on www.thepioneerwoman.com

Spartan Tournament Update


Aren't these cute little baseballers lined up for the national anthem? Gavin's team won again last night in the City Tournament (City meaning All-Tulsa, for you outsiders). We play again tomorrow. We are sure to have at least 3 more games because it is double emlim and we haven't lost yet. Gavin had some super hits last night. I am going to do my best to get video of an at bat...this is easier said than done as some of you know! On a side note- last summer Gavin wanted to bleach his hair. We did. Many friends also did. (When he started back to school this little girl even said- Gavin, you are blonde too? All the boys are blonde!) We even kept him kind of blonde through the year with me and him wanting his hair longer, and dad wanting it shorter. Well, the other day he suggested to be really blonde again. So, I made him a bleach blonde...boy, is he easy to find in a line up!

Outside today...


First, this froggy jumped on me while I was wrangling out the waterslide. I screamed, but then we decided to take pictures and NOT capture it, which is usually the case with Gavin. He inherited some kind of freak outdoorsman gene- and not from me or his dad. Throw that boy on a farm or ranch and he'd be happy for days doing nothing but staying outside finding ways to be dirty. We don't happen to have a ranch (you pretty much have to win the lotto around here to afford more than an acre or two! Really, I called on some land not far from us and the man wanted 1.4 million dollars!! Yah- okay Mr.) , so he makes do. Grandparents with larger areas to roam help out. This waterslide is the best investment- by the way. I bought it 2 summers ago when they go on clearance at the end of summer. A great buy! Hours of enjoyment, a little scary creative jumping and climbing...they love it. Gavin is not pictured because he was inside after the frog incident. He is suppose to be cleaning his room before he does any other activity. This is often the case as that boy can make a mess in his room in 30 seconds flat, then spend 4-5 days wailing about cleaning it up!
