Another Fully Packed Post

A lot can happen when you step away from your desk. LOL  Well, I'll get right to the photo. I've been taking some on line courses though Kelby Training for Photo Shop.  It's been fun to say the least...  because..... I want to lean more about Photography, Editing and I can take these courses at my own pace.  There are lessons for everything! I use PSE9, there are courses for all Adobe PS {CS, Light Room  which at this point i know nothing about.}
As for the picture I took of my  grandson Ian.  I turned it into b/w and used a  eraser brush to bring the duck back to yellow.  Today i made my first watermark in PS. It's not the best but i  got the hang of it now! 
Another bit of news, my kids are going back to private school this fall. We tried public this year and have decided to put them back in private. They both cried when we told them they could go back to their old school. Days after we told them, Micah thought he was dreaming. He kept asking me if it was for real. There friends are so excited to see them their again. When i told my friend who is a teacher at the school. She e mailed me back and said her 8th grade sons tuition was paid for for the year so she was going to deposit $300.00 plus scrip $$ into our tuition acc. What an awesome blessing!! What a generous heart! {We are not members so we pay full tuition}
Oh and my  Canon Rebel  sold last week.  A friend of mine bought it. She said she was looking for  a new camera....  after I posted a slight rant on FB about the replies i was getting off Craigslist. Scammers wanting me to ship it to another State/Country and they would pay an additional $150.00 to get it there. What a crock! I like using CL for selling stuff.... because it's free, and I have sold a few things on that site. But you have to be careful!
Today is the the first day of spring!! {it's raining and sleeting outside} : / My kids are off of school this week. Sam got a new bike and they both got helmets. So if it gets nice enough  maybe we'll  get to ride our bikes. I hope so.
Well friends/family thanks for stopping by.
Happy Spring!

What a sweet pic. Sounds like your boys are looking forward to next year and things are working out nicely. It's been too long since I've stopped by, I've missed your posts! Take care, my friend and have a great week with the boys off school!

What an adorable photo, Kari. You've had a lot on your plate lately, but it looks like a lot of it has been fun and educational. Good for you! It sounds like public school didn't work out for you as well as you'd hoped. I hope next year is a better one for you and the boys. What a lovely gesture in your friend depositing the money. Wow. Congrats on selling the camera. And I hope the weather clears up so that you can all enjoy a fun bike ride or two.
