Uncle Tom's Cabin & Photo Challenges

Our family has always loved to read. Book stores, and book sales have been a weak spot for us. :) So we have lots of books! A few months ago, we had to add some shelves down the middle of our school room library. (Us kids were fine with that!) So I've seen a couple "book" photo challenges, and asked my sister to do a little photoshoot...

I' entering this one (above) into Raquel's contest...

So she picked out Uncle Tom's Cabin (Wonderful book)
Thought we should warn you...

There are some funny parts, 

Some horrifying parts, 

And well, I guess there were some surprises in there too. :)

I'm entering this picture into Raquel's and Mikayla/Allie's contests...

{A Photo} Challenge

We love books. 'nuff said!

Manito Park


I went on a bike ride this a park called 'Manito Park'. It was beautiful! There was a Japanese garden, rose garden, greenhouse with a bunch of really cool cacti, and this garden (pictured above).  Is that a cool picture or what?! 
(btw, that's me in the picture, and my little sis took it...thanks girl!) 


Psalms 51:10a

I thought this verse fit well with my purity ring. :)

Scavenger Hunt Sunday in Cannon Beach Pictures

Ah! I'm finally able to participate in SHS again. :) All of these pictures are from our trip to the beach, so you can get a 'sneak peek'. We are still in Spokane for another week or so...and today I am going to the Spokane Symphony Orchestra! So I'd better get off of here and get ready. Enjoy!

One day we walked around about a tourist city! 

2. From a Distance
Cannon Beach Trip 952
Haystack Rock and the Needles, probably one of the most photographed rocks in the US. They were beautiful, but I kinda like the other end of the beach better...

3. Sunday
Cannon Beach Trip 687
Yeah, you probably weren't expecting a picture like this for 'Sunday'. I had a picture of the church we attended, but I wanted to be a little more creative [smile]. I came across this one, and thought.."Hey! We go to church on Sunday, to praise God, so why can't this work?" Praising God is what we do on Sunday, and this is what I was doing when my sis took the picture...

4. Liquid
Cannon Beach Trip 1107
On our way home, we saw a huge waterfall (I'll put pictures of the whole thing up later), and I took a picture from the bridge..looking down. Creative, eh? 

5. Behind
Cannon Beach Trip 619
...Behind the camera lens. That's where you'll find me most of the time. [smile]

“Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning...”

The S. Family

As I mentioned before, I had the opportunity to take the S. family pictures. They were such wonderful people to work with...and are great friends. I'm so blessed to have them in my life!
