Snapshots...

Kyla's been here for the holiday weekend... it's been what, two weeks or so since she went back to Mom's in Tampa for First Grade? 


Anyway... she's one of my favorite subjects to shoot, so I went and practiced using my new telephoto lens while she played. Being at a distance allowed me to capture some very striking moments, at least to me... and here are just a few... 


She made a new friend who left... and Kyla, who is amazingly clever, noticed that she wasn't carrying a stuffed monkey she had, and this caused her to worry if her new friend had left it at the playground... 


And below, you'll see where we started to go on a little hike on the woodland trail with another new friend from Sidwell Friends who lived in Holland, or was from Holland. I take it that his dad must either be some form of diplomat or whatnot. 


Anyway, it's amazing that she can fly on her own now and can spend more and more time up here. She's got her "fall/winter" wardrobe here and her more Florida endless summer wardrobe down there with mom... it really is the best of both worlds, and when you consider that she's got her mom and dad on the radio in the same town (sorta) again, well, that's pretty cool too, I think. 

Then, you factor in the new friends, new people and stuff here AND there, and you've got the makings of a pretty impressive life for a six year old. 


I'm blessed, and lucky. I hope that you have the same sorts of blessings in your world...
