|My dad before the wedding: the result of blending the two pictures below. I liked how he was standing in the first one, but it was overexposed, so I put him into the background of the second one!|
|I liked dad in this one..|

|This is my brother matt and his wife. The photographer had them standing, backlit by the setting sun. I am sure she knows what she is doing with editing and metering, but this is what I got with spot metering. This is before editing.|
|After photoshop editing. This is not the best picture, but I didn't want to work on a really good picture first.|
It feels like my kids are going off to college already, but it's just middle school. After homeschooling for all of their years of early education, they are going into 6th and 8th grade at the local middle school. It was not a decision easily made.
They are a delight to have around. They are helpful, bright, hilarious and creative. It will be strange to not have them around during the day. I'm thankful for each of the teachers who will be joining the ever expanding team of mentors for my kids and am looking forward to finding out what new things they'll get my kids excited about.
Isaac will get to be in an after school robotics team and may get to pick up a second instrument in band this year. Eva will be playing her clarinet in band and will be taking a home living course. They will both have core classes in math, science, history and english. I'm so proud of them and I know they will do wonderfully. I pray that God will give them patience and that the kids and teachers will be extra kind. I love these kids!
