SPC - 'Transparent'

Week 3:

Transparent Playground

Week 4:

Transparent Hypocrite

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.

And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?"

Matthew 7:1-4

Nicholson File Co.

Nicholson File Co.

This old factory is just a stone's throw from where we have lived for the last twelve years. As with many old, abandoned building in Anderson, it is currently being demolished. I have often visited this old building on walks, bike rides and leisurely drives. I'll miss it when it's gone.

29/52 for Monochrome 52.

Some other views of this place before "official" demolition began:

First Day of School 2012

Harrison starts Kindergarten this year. Hannah is in fifth grade. DSC_4420_gimp_sooc_small DSC_4367_gimp_edit_smallDSC_4527_gimp_edit_small DSC_4380_gimp_edit_smallDSC_4385_gimp_edit_small DSC_4439_gimp_crop_smallDSC_4455_gimp_sooc_small DSC_4456_gimp_edit_smallDSC_4486_gimp_sooc_small

Day 1 was a success. Harrison wasn't sure about school lunch and spent a good portion of his recess time looking for his good friend from pre-school whom he finally found in the lines to come back inside, but otherwise he enjoyed his first day.

Hannah is a little disappointed that a good friend from last year doesn't appear to be in her class this year, but she's grown accustomed to changes from year to year and is very capable of making new friendships.

Christy also started Year 2 of her MSW program today. She has switched to part-time weekdays which means she goes to IUPUI Monday and Wednesday afternoons instead of all day Saturday. This means changes for everybody in our family, but I'm grateful to be a part of a family that rolls with such changes and pitches in where needed.

Feeling very blessed this good day.

Transparent iPod

The challenge theme at Self Portrait Challenge for the month of August is 'Transparent.'

...or was it 'obvious?' -- either way.
