Stacey’s 365 Project- Day 124

"Determination" My little one just learned how to ride her bike, today she was riding down a hill going quite fast, when she tried to stop quickly and took a spill. She was upset, she cried, I helped get her bike out of the road while she limped over to the curb. In a minute or so when she caught her breath, she got up and grabbed her bike and went straight back to that hill. She was determined not to let that hill get her down. She conquered the hill and was so proud of herself for not giving...

I finally have a bicycle rider! My little one, the strong willed (they are actually both strong willed) child who marches to the beat of her own drum, was asked by her cousin to bring her bike to a family get together. The get together was in the country, on 5 acres none of which is paved. So I told her we could not have the training wheels out there because they would just stick in the grass. Once she got there her cousin (the same age) asked her to ride, he had learned how earlier that week...So my cousin...

I wish I had a drive like this in Gainesville, the closest to this might be Millhopper Road. I guess technically this is not my "photo of the day" because I took this while we were in South Carolina as we were leaving my Granny and Grandaddy's. I asked my mom to pull the car over, because I knew this would be a cool picture and honestly I LOVE the way it turned out. Sometime, just sometimes it is worth pulling the car over to photograph something that you know will be awesome.

I mentioned that I would be doing a Veteran's photoshoot at the VFW in #GainesvilleFL the day after my Grandaddy's pictures in South Carolina. This is one of the Veteran's I got a picture of. He is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the #USMC and he served in Korea and Vietnam and earned THREE Purple Hearts, among many other awards and ribbons. I was really excited when he showed up in his full dress uniform including white gloves. It was such an honor to get to photograph this among others today. I will be posting them on another webpage soon...

It was a field trip of epic proportions, o.k. maybe that is a little exaggerated...So it went like this...My mom's sheltie, Sebastian, passed away last week, she knew it was coming and had started researching what dog she wanted next. My mom has always liked fluffy dogs, she thinks they are like living teddy bears, and this new dog will be no different. She set her heart on a Bernese Mountain dog, and the only one available at a reasonable price was in Ohio...that's quite a drive from Florida. Turns out the breeder has a courier that would bring him...
