Brooke's Photo Gallery

Brooke has been working as a counselor at choir camp all week and today was their concert. I am so sad that I had to miss it - today was Morgan's first junior varsity cheerleading practice. Both events were at the same time and I had to enlist my mother-in-law's assistance, so I let her choose. She decided a cool, air-conditioned church listening to children sing was preferable to sitting in a stifling, un-air-conditioned gym for more than two hours watching teens and preteens cheer. She made a good choice. That gym was HOT!!!

I heard the concert went very well and Brooke was very proud of the job she did this week. We're proud of her, too!

When we went to Target last night for the garbage cans and toad habitat, Brooke also begged me to buy a hummingbird feeder. We had one before, but it broke. She has been stalking the kitchen window like the paparazzi, watching for hungry little hummers. She hit pay dirt! Here comes one little, unsuspecting guy.

Then she decided to go outside. She caught this one on his way to my MIL's zinnas.

And back at the feeder, this little fella is checking it out before taking a sip! Brooke spent many hours both inside and outside with the camera trying to catch all the hummer action.

And, believe it or not, one of our little tadpoles hopped out on dry land today! Isn't he cute? His name is Phillip the Phrog. This picture is quite misleading - he is probably the size of a newborn fingernail. Very tee-tiny.

I want to do a hummingbird and butterfly garden at our new house. I love hummers and flutterbyes.

WOW. that IS small. I'm thinking you must have studied Zoology 1 if your dd is interested in frogs and hummingbirds!
