"a portrait of, and occasionally a quote from my children, once a week, every week, in 2016"

Jackson: Attempting a handstand on the chilly water of Inland Lake. He loves the thrill of the cold apparently and has managed a jump every month this year so far.  

Lily: She has just been given the trumpet to learn to play at school Pray for us. :)

All photos are from my iPhone this week. It's been a busy one and unfortunately I didn't take my Canon out once.

They fill my heart like nothing else can. I glad they are still willing participants for my constant requests for photos. Jackson certainly isn't as keen these days but continues to indulge me and I'm so grateful. Sometimes I bribe them with a treat but for the most part they are happy to have a few minutes of smiles and silliness for my camera.

Fall and Spiders

  How I love the fall and it's rainbow of colour. I feel like I use that same sentence every year. Trees with the most brilliant reds, greens and yellows are really showing off right now. I have a small collection of leaves going on that I'm pressing and hope to frame to hold on to this amazing time of year. So much beauty everywhere!!! Then there are the spiders and their intricate beautiful webs. I don't love them but their webs and their delicate features are pretty cool to admire from a distance (and a big camera lens). One morning I'll get out to photograph them when it's foggy and gray and their webs almost glow with dew. 

Once again, I must express my gratitude for where I live. Check out all the mushrooms popping up everywhere around town. I feel so lucky to be able to live so close to nature and all it's wonder especially in October.

Jackson: My boy took the reffing course a few weeks ago and has officially worked his first game. He was very focused and did well. I'm so proud! :)

Lily: She's a pretty happy, positive little lady. She doesn't love her teacher this year but always has something good to say regardless of her true feelings. More pride! :)

Nature Loving - Fungus Season

It's Fungus Season here in Powell River. I have no idea how many different varieties there are but they sure are everywhere, particularly in the woods. It's a good time for hiking. Magical fairy smurf houses are all around. Apparently there is decent money picking mushrooms if you know what to look for but I prefer just to admire and take pictures. Hope you enjoy!
