Too Late?

For my birthday this year I was given one of the best gifts ever. EVER.

My Nikon D3000!!!

Everyone now: *GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!* (Repeat as many times as needed for full effect!)

I was SO very thrilled that my friends and family joined together to give me this wonderful gift.... I had been dreaming of such a thing for 15 years!

And then the total excitement started to fade and my fear started.... What if I totally, completely sucked as a photographer?? ACK! Could you imagine?

It took me about a week to get the courage to haul out my soon to be newest addiction (named Delilah) and take photos.... Which rolled into taking my girls out on one of the smokiest days here (forest fires from BC took over where we live) to the country to take some photos...

I don't know if I have an 'eye' for photography.... I like to think I have some talent hidden somewhere inside of me... But even if not, at least my everyday photos of the girls will be... Prettier??! *L*

You may notice that some say 'Cinnamon Photography'.... That's what I would call my company.... So I am! *L*

Am I too late in the game to be starting my passion in life?

Around here the 'New Year' begins when the new school year begins! And this year BOTH girls are in school! GEEEEE!!!

Emma will be entering Grade 2 and Zoe Kindergarten!!!

Again, GEEEEE!!!!

This doesn't really get to start up until the week into school as Kindergarten has three intro days (three different groups for this), but I'm excited!


THEN Emma is registered with the Boys & Girls Club to give her something to do after school (esp. on cold winter days.... She'll need this!).... The best part? They help with homework! Phew! *L*

Zoe has KinderCare three times a week... So yes, I'll be picking her up at the end of a regular school day and not Emma... But really, who cares??! *LOL*

What, you may ask, will I be doing with 'all this spare time??!'.... I'm not sure. Maybe a class.... Probably a lot of housework (time to get that basement ready for another winter).... And a whole heck of a lot of volunteering!

Again this year I'm the Chair of the Schools' PA (Parents' Association) and on a hundred different committees.... As well, I'm on the Board for the Figure Skating Club that the girls are with (I'll be running their yearly 'Carnival')... And I offered to help decorate and plan activities for the Boys & Girls Club instead of paying the non-volunteering fee (that might change depending on how much time they need....).... *L* So I guess I'll be slightly busy.

Anyhoo, just thought I'd do an update of our household, it's been awhile!

More another day!
