Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All One Color

So, I’m here for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All One Color, after emerging briefly last week from the grips of a killer sinus infection….. I was sick (still) with added side effects of the antibiotics. (The coughing, fever, aching, nose-blowing, never-ending mucus was not enough, so the addition of gastrointestinal issues was JUST what I needed to make the experience complete!) I’m not through with it quite yet- and I’m not going to hold out any hopes that this is over (after all, I’ve only been under the weather for a month now) but at least a good many of the symptoms and side effects are gone. And I’m hoping this isn’t another ‘flash in the pan’ appearance.

#AtoZChallenge D is for Dreams


“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

My oldest son dreamed of becoming a firefighter when he grew up. And he did.

Learning did not come easy to him and he worked hard to earn each and every good grade he received. When he hit his teen years, things got rocky, as they sometimes do with teenagers. I worried. He tested boundaries. We made it through.

And a week after he graduated from high school, he began the EMT program. After working as an EMT  for a few years, he got into the Paramedic program and became a certified paramedic. With his end goal in sight, he was trained in the fire academy and was hired as a firefighter-paramedic just two years ago. He continues to study and added Engineer to his certifications.

He had a dream, he worked his butt off to achieve it, and I am in awe of him. He is an inspiration to anyone who thinks that their dreams are beyond their reach and I couldn’t be prouder of him.

This post is working double-duty today and piggy-backing onto Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Summer/Fire.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring – Wood

It doesn’t feel like spring here in the Midwest these days so I need to dust off some pictures from previous years to take part in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring – Wood.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: View From the Side

Chairs on the sides of buildings.  These are in two different towns in Michigan. I’m not sure what the story is there.

I seriously love this kid’s hair, especially in the sunlight!

And then there is this little guy…..who is no longer this little!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Looking Down at Things

This week’s theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Looking Down at Things.

Having an active toddler around the house, I never know what I’m going to find when I look down.

How did the Terences sneak into the fireplace before we could clean it?

And here’s the view from the top of the bleachers-
