Wow, year 6 is complete (Sept. 2019). Here goes year 7. I guess time really does fly when you are having fun!

Christian, military spouse (retired), and homeschool mom! I love to travel (and we used to move around a lot), snapping pictures as I go, and to take photos of my kids' events. Basically, I take pictures of everything, kind of a left over habit from my newspaper days. Still having fun and learning a lot! But, I think my favorite is nature photography.

Constructive criticism is welcome!
