Well, Harrisonville lost the big first game of the year against the 2008 State Championship Webb City Cardinals 33-7. However, we were very proud of Garland’s part as lineman in the one series resulting in a touchdown!

This morning I had to show two photos! One of the troupe of us part-way on our walk (it’s Thursday/babysitting day), and one of these gorgeous flowers we saw on the way!
|Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning Richard, Garland and I took Senior photos at Fastnight Park and the downtown area of Springfield and then locations around the farm. I took photos, and Richard was the light man as he kept up with keeping good light on Garland. Sometimes the light was so much he had to wear sunglasses!
This photo was taken on the walking trail near us. Labor Day Weekend we will travel to Harrisonville for another big photo shoot on the football field and other local areas there.

I had the idea of taking a photo of the 3 of us sitting on the edge of the bridge on the walking trail. In order to get the best focus and depth of field, I needed the camera a ways away from us. I thought I could make it from the camera to sit down in 10 second . . . well, I was partly right as you can see from the photo on the left! So, then Garland volunteered to take the next shot. He’s a lot faster runner than I am as you can see from the photo on the right!
I got into a weeding frenzy and found this nest of little bunnies right in the middle of one flower bed! I covered them back up after I took their photos!
Here’s the link to the photos I took for our Hand ‘n Hand blog.
Here’s the link to the KORL 10 report which appeared on TV tonight!
And here’s the link to the Springfield News-Leader articles in the August 12 issue. We were front page, above the fold in the actual paper!
Here’s the group on the Third Annual Honeymoon Float! Our flotilla filled nine canoes and three kayaks. And this year we had the added enjoyment of Guitar Man and his dog! Click here to see more photos!
The fair posted the results of the photography judging while we were canoeing, and I placed second with this photo in the kaleidoscope category–
A local TV station is having another contest of photos taken at the fair, so I’ll take a bunch today when we go and enter some and see how I do with that! In the past I’ve done somewhat good with photos taken at the fair. We will see how I do this year!
Here we are as we broke camp on Tuesday morning.
It was a lovely morning with some low fog over the river.
|And here we are in front of the big cave close to the take-out at Round Spring.|
