I Just Had to Share This

Tuesday was my last sub day at the Colony and we had planned a hike to the coulee.  It was more than two hours walking, climbing, tromping through muck, watching frogs, exploring through the trees and sitting on a rock like a bunch of turtles sunning.

"What do you think about this place?" asked Mark.  "I love it," I replied.  "Me, too."

These pictures are very special.  The kids really let me into their sheltered world.  They taught me so much about their unique life.  They loved being in the outdoors.

I let them all take pictures with my SLR Digital Camera - my good camera!  At times they were teetering on the edge of a frog pond or balancing on a big rock with my good camera.  The lens cap was always in my hand the strap always around their neck!

The results were worth the risk.  I love these pictures.


  1. These pictures are fantastic. Really beautifully capturing these children.

  2. What a pleasant adventure! The kids look darling and are becoming great photographers. Looks like everyone had fun!

  3. Great pictures, what is this place???

  4. Oh Sarah, these photos are wonderful. I love the one with the girls peeking out the window!

  5. What a nice end to the school year. I'm sure your kids will remember this trip for a long time. Did you copy the pictures so they could each have them?

  6. What a fantastic post Sarah! Such sweet faces these children have.
    I would be running away from the boy with the frog though... ;)
    Happy Sunday!
