Soccer time in Dallas

Zachary has been playing soccer with a team that travels every other weekend to Dallas.  One weekend the boys were invited to go to the FC Dallas soccer game (a pro team) and lead the players onto the field.  Quite an honor I think.  They had hot dogs and drinks and watched Dallas beat Real Salt Lake.  I did not go but Kathleen took my camera and got some really good pictures.  (I did share these on Facebook!)

Lightening strikes–and clouds!

Today we had some really pretty clouds in the distant southeast sky.  I got a few pictures then the boys called and wanted us to go get ice cream.

Big thunder boomers with no thunder.

03-29-13 sky 02

 

There was just a little patch of the clouds surrounded by some dark sky.

03-29-13 sky 03

 

I was really enjoying the moving of the clouds and they quickly changed.03-29-13 sky 04

 

 

I thought that was the last of my pictures.

 

 

 

 

Coming home though I could see the clouds and changed into lightening makers!

03-29-13 sky 05

 

We could see the strikes from the road and I could not wait to grab my camera when I got home.

Love this shot!

I thought this one turned out great too!

I just love trying to capture the sky but really think I need a faster lens.  Always!!

 

 

 

Some of my pictures picked up some cook lights as clicked and moved.

Zane–church choir program

Can you tell I am trying to catch up on this blog?  Sorry for so many posts in so few days!  I will try to do better.

OK, not many pictures here.  It is hard to get pictures of Zane way back in the singing section of the program.  In a couple of years he plans on trying out for a speaking part “like Zachary did”. 

03-03-13 Zane church play 01

 

 

 

These plays are always cute with a play of words from a Bible story.  This years was Jonah’s Druthers based on the story of Jonah – but told in an old west theme.  Really cute and the set was just awesome. 

03-03-13 Zane church play 0203-03-13 Zane church play 03

 

 

First up, the Cherub Choir.  These are the little bitty kids.

03-03-13 Zane church play 05

 

These two brother filled in for a little comic relief.  They did the skit “Who’s on First”, from Abbott and Costello.  They had it down and we all laughed so hard. Great job, guys.

03-03-13 Zane church play 07

 

 

And here is Zane.  He is in the Children’s Choir.  Up through 2nd grade I believe.  He is in first grade.

 

 

 

 

03-03-13 Zane church play 11

 

Here is how far back we were.  We really had great seats but need to be a little closer for that camera.

03-03-13 Zane church play 12

 

 

I am always amazed at how well these kids can act.03-03-13 Zane church play 13

 

 

Zane was so funny.  He told me a secret – Jonah was not really in the well.  They were just pretending. 

03-03-13 Zane church play 14

 

Part of the set was a moving stage coach. The “horses” moved it down the center aisle and up a ramp onto the stage.

03-03-13 Zane church play 16

 

 

They placed it on the stage.

03-03-13 Zane church play 18

 

 

And the actors climbed in through the back and bounced along the road.  Amazing props!

 

 

 

03-03-13 Zane church play 20

 

Goodnight!  See you next year!   (I hope!)

Zane–school Valentine party

I went to Zane’s Valentine party at school.  Kathleen asked if I could go since it was hard for her to take off work.  Of course!  I love going to functions for my grandsons.  This party was short but of course the kids loved it.02-15-13 Zane Valentine 06

 

 

They got special projects to do and cookies to eat. All is good for kids!

 

 

 

 

02-15-13 Zane Valentine 07

 

 

This is the look you get   when you ask a boy (or Zane anyway) to pose for a picture.

 

 

 

 

02-15-13 Zane Valentine 09

 

 

 

My neighbor, Dianna, and her granddaughter.  Audrey is in Zane’s class this year.

    Aiden and Kristi.

This is what you get when you ask a girl to pose.

      Food.  The best part. 

 

 

 

 

Then we went home early.  Great fun.
