We're Home Owners!

We closed today and we are now home owners! This is our first home so we're super excited. Now if I could magically wiggle my nose and make everything more itself we'd be set!

Stacks of Boxes
Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

We are moving this weekend. I have boxes stacked all in the bedroom. I haven't started packing yet. Instead I took a picture of the boxes. I keep putting it off but moving day will be here before I know it!

Day 117- Drying Tulip

Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

This tulip has started drying out on the edges. Looks like they won't be around much longer.

Don't be shocked if I'm not able to post on a regular basis the next several days. We are closing on the house Friday and moving this weekend. I'm trying to get sub plans ready for Friday and Monday for my sub (I teach 5th grade). I haven't had phone/internet service transfered yet. I'll be taking pictures (if I can find the time between the boxes) and try to get them posted once we get moved in. So starting Friday it may a few days before I can post.

Day 116- Roses

Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

The roses in front of our apartment are blooming. I'm sad because this will be the last year I get to enjoy them. They are rose bushes my husband's grandmother brought here when she moved years ago. She has since passed but we still have the beautiful flowers here to remind us of her. We are moving Saturday! I hate the thought of moving but I'm so excited about the new house.

It has been one of those weekends when I can't seem to find anything to take a picture of. Then after a few shots today the battery died. This is all I have for you today.

Day 112- Blue Sky

I went to Panoply today with my 5th grade students. We were eating lunch and I wasn't eating (no shock there). I was looking at the sky and decided to lay back in the grass and take a picture. My kids know how crazy I am so they didn't think a thing about it.

There is also a pond in the park. It was great because I had lots of kids with food around me. It really brought in the animals.

Another picture of something under the hood of the racecar. I like the way you can see the numbers in the background, but they're out of focus.

One of my themes this month is angles. I decided to take a picture of the pine tree limbs. Not very creative but it gets the job done.

I am in charge of the morning news program at school. I have a little girl in my class who does "Critter Corner" where she focuses on different animals. A sub has animals and she brought baby ducks in for us to feature on Critter Corner. Here are a few pics I took of the ducks.

Day 102- Neglected

Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

This poor building fit perfectly for neglected. It is a pretty big building but I took this with my macro lens. I wanted to focus in on the broken window and palm tree pained on the side.

Day 101- Iris

I made my husband go with me today to take pictures of these flowers I saw on the side of a back street. He gets mad at me if I stop by myself to take pictures so he always goes with me. Here are the best shots.

And I take all these pictures of beautiful flowers and I think the best picture I got today was of this weed.

I think I'm getting the hang of this flash. I played around with it and tried bouncing it off different places. Some turned out better than others. These are the best ones though.

I went out after school today and took some pictures of the flowers that are blooming. We planted a lot of flowers and things around the school campus in the fall. So these are the best shots.

Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

It was a crazy day today so all I shot was this pine cone. Well, I did take a few more pics of my new house. The kitchen is done and so is the bathroom so I took a few shots of that. I didn't figure you guys wanted to see more of that. :)

Day 97- Apple Blossom

Originally uploaded by shaddybaby

The apple tree is in full bloom. The little white and pink flowers are so pretty. I spent some time tonight standing in front of the tree trying to get some good shots. I even managed to capture a bee. I'm not patient so this is as good as it gets when it comes to me and live bugs. I do much better with bugs that have pins stuck in them. Which shot is your favorite?
