Got my new camera!!!

My new camera finally arrived yesterday! After a quick *not really* lesson from Pa, Jesse and I headed out to Freestone Park today. I tried to take pictures of him, but he thought we were there to play! Silly boy! Got some good ones, mostly messed around with my camera settings, though. This was my favorite. He was actually standing still!

Our new neighbor

Well, it seems with all the construction going on around here we have a new neighbor. At first there were two of them, but lately there's just this one. He looks really hungry and lonely. However, he has been brazenly walking the streets of our neighborhood. Turns out he cuts through from his old home and ends up right at our house! LOL I'm not sure how to feel about this. On one hand I know we have taken his home but on the other hand I worry for my kids and other small pets. But, seeing him this close made me feel better. I took this pic with my camera phone, so I was pretty close and he seems really mellow. He even got startled by a dog at one house he was poking around. I may call a rescue later and see what they think. He surely can't last long alone and in a "city" with no food. Oh, btw, I've named him Wylie.

UPDATE! Well, after geting a closer look I was able to look online and have discovered that my new friend is not a coyote. He is a wolf dog hybrid. I called a man from the rescue and he told me that the other one was hit by a car a week ago, so this guy is alone. Although, there is nthing to be done. If animal control gets him they will put him down, and the rescues are full. So, I will just hope for the best. Guess I should change his name. How about Los Lonely Boy?

Well, my little one is the bravest of them all. He saw this bike and climbed right up on it. Up and down curbs, around corners, with no fear. Although, I worry that the fear only comes after the fall. So, how can I teach him to be careful without the pain that will come with the fall. I don't know. I guess that is part of life. I must let hiim learn on his own.

A new start on memories...

It seems that there is so much going on all the time that I feel as if I am *AWOL* sometimes.

I will try to step back and take a peek into the window of my life more often...
