A few quick shots...

Yesterday I had to come in to the office on my day off to do a little paperwork. While I was here I decided to see if I could get a really good photo of Simon. I can get him to smile without any problems, but as soon as I put the camera to my eye...he would stop smiling. Luckily the little guy has eyes that look GREAT when he isn't smiling too big. I did a couple of "window-light" shots to really show his eyes. This is one of my favorites.

Okay....It's been a while, but with good reason!

I haven't been to good about updating this blog lately. Sorry. As many of you know, my wife and I are adopting from Ethiopia....I guess I should say that we now HAVE adopted from Ethiopia. We made a whirlwind trip there 2 weeks ago and only got back last week. We came home with our little guy, Simon Kebebe Ailor, who is just amazing. The trip was amazing, difficult, exhausting, thrilling, emotional...etc. I still haven't processed it all into words just yet. Here is a photo of our little guy. As my son was attached to my hip during most of the trip, I didn't get to take nearly as many photos as I would have liked. I did get to take photos of some Children at the Yezelelem Minch feeding program. They do an amazing job of providing a hot meal for over 720 kids a week. I just thought these three little girls were beautiful and I had to take their photo. I got a lot of amazing photos of the kids that day.
