I Knew This Day Was Coming…

And it’s not the end of the world or anything and yep, I’ve got bigger battles in my future but it’s still a big one in my book. My 15 yo son wants to get his ear pierced. I am sick to my stomach over it. I don’t want to tell him no but I also don’t want him to do it! I don’t like ear piercing on guys. No offense to those that have them, it’s just my personal preference for them not to be on my men, and since he’s my son, I’d rather him not have holes in his ears! But I keep hearing that “Pick your battles” phrase in my head and think is this one worth fighting over? Probably not. So if his father doesn’t care I’m gonna have to roll with it I think, and cringe while he does it. I did draw the line on his friends sister doing it however! He is having it done by a professional.

So my photography class is great, I’m learning to shoot out of ‘Auto’ mode. I’m not necessarily ‘getting’ it all but I hope one day I will have an ‘aha’ moment! It’s been fun though and I highly recommend Karen’s class if you are looking to learn about photography.

Here’s a shot of an eagle I took at Michael’s parent’s lake a couple of weeks ago. It was up in a dead tree in the middle of the lake and we had to take a very shaky canoe out to get this so I’m pretty happy with it, even tho it’s in Auto mode!


This shot was taken out of auto mode in aperture priority mode, which is supposed to help blur the background a bit…


Other than that, it’s been work, baseball, karate, and Cards for Soldiers for me. Oh and Jake started driving too! Talk about nerve wracking! And that’s all I’ve got for today. Happy Sunday. Have a great week!
