PHOTO OF THE WEEK #52 - Congratulations Orange!

Year 3 of my Photo of the Week project ends with Ben's ball hockey team coming in 2nd place!  WTG Orange!!  The final game of the weekend was a great game to watch.  Both goalies made some really great stops.

Ben was disappointed that they lost to their 'arch rivals' the White team, but he didn't have anything to be disappointed about.  Everyone on his team played really well.

Thanks to his coaches and parent helpers.  I know Ben had a great time this season.  :)

Week #53 - June 29, 2012Congratulations Orange!Tottenham, ON

I just noticed that my last 3 photos of this project are of Ben, and 2 of them are taken with my phone.  Since summer vacation is about to start.....there may be even more of Ben at the start of Year 4. Hopefully you don't get too tired of seeing him.  Now that I have a new phone with a way better camera, hopefully my phone photos will be much better quality.  :)

Thanks for looking!

MISCELLANEOUS - Harvest Share Box

This summer we decided to sign up for the Harvest Share Box program offered through one of the local farms in our area. Last week was our first box! It was exciting to see what we were going to get in it.

The program coordinator emails us the day before with a list of what's going to be in the box as well as some suggestions and recipes for cooking it all up. We signed up for the personal size box, which they say feeds approximately 2-3 people.

Here is what was in our box last week:
  • Strawberries – Barrie Hill Farms
  • Barrie Spinach – Springh Farms
  • Holland Marsh Romaine Lettuce – Springh Farms
  • Holland Marsh Garlic Scape – Carron Farms Ltd
  • Holland Marsh Asparagus – Barrie Hill Farms
  • Barrie Radishes – Springh Farms
  • Holland Marsh Yellow Zucchini – Nightingale Farms Ltd
  • LaSalette Rhubarb – Barrie Hill Farms, Barrie
We've used up pretty much everything. :) Here are some pictures of what we received.


Looking forward to getting our box later today.  :)

Do any of you participate in a similar program in your area??  Leave a comment and let me know! :)

Thanks for looking!

I've been waiting patiently to post about this session.  The photographs were a Father's Day surprise for their Daddy.  :)

Thank you Tina for bringing your three beautiful children to the studio.  I had fun both inside and outdoors with them.

Here are a few images from their session.

I had the pleasure of meeting Judy at our Tottenham WINGS & HEROS meeting back in April, and in May I had the opportunity to take professional headshot portraits for her at my home studio.  Judy is a Lia Sophia Star Unit Leader.

Here is a little bit about Judy and her business:

"I have been working, part time, in the Direct Selling Business for over 23 years.  At this point in my life I would love to share my knowledge and experience.  My goal is to work with women to develop the ultimate business which will empower them to obtain not only personal growth but also financial freedom.

The last 3 years I have been with Lia Sophia, a company which provides the most welcoming and fostering environment to guide you on a productive and fun journey.

Help me to help you create the perfect path for you.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK #50 - Only about an inch to go!!

This is another picture from my phone camera.  Even though it's technically not a great photo, it does mean a lot to me.

Every time we go to Wonderland, Ben runs to the measuring station to get measured and get his height wrist band.  He wants to be 54" sooooooo bad.  And since the beginning of the season, he's actually grown almost an inch already!  I think he's really willing himself to grow.  My guess is that he's going to get on the Behemoth and Leviathan before this Wonderland season is over!
