Misc. Pictures

Here are some photos I took in the last week.

My Sister Samantha

Her best friend, ebony

Man, is she ever growing up way to fast!!!
It feels just like yesterday, she was learning to ride a bike.

Run Forest run!


Note: Samantha took these ones! =)

Pictures of Samantha and I

We were just... having fun and being random out in the field, what else do you do on a sunny day outside? :)

you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

Nature's Wonders

The beauty of nature cannot be measured on any chart, nor the delight that it brings to the soul.

Sunday, February 7, 2010


One song can spark a moment, One flower can wake the dream. One tree can start a forest, One bird can herald spring. One smile begins a friendship,  One handclasp lifts a soul. One star can guide a ship at sea, One word can frame the goal One vote can change a nation, One sunbeam lights a room One candle wipes out darkness, One laugh will conquer gloom. One step must start each journey. One word must start each prayer. One hope will raise our spirits, One touch can show you care. One voice can speak with wisdom, One heart can know what's true, One life  can make a difference, You see, it's up to you!

Addy - The Golden Retriever

Addy in the dirty water. She absolutely loves the water, especially our pond. Rocks are her favorite thing to fetch, along with sticks and basically anything you can throw. Here are a few pictures I took of her today.

Frog Eggs

We have frog eggs all over in our pond, it kind of made an interesting picture!

Pictures From Today

I went for a short walk this afternoon and took a few pictures, nothing to exciting.
