The County Fair is Coming

The Guadalupe County Fair and Rodeo will be here next week. The parade will kick off the festivities this Saturday afternoon. This will be the first year since Heather's been in band that the band will not perform in the fair parade. This year it conflicts with a band contest. With all that's going on next week, there surely will be many photo ops at every turn....

This photo was taken during last year's fair.

These are more photos I took during half time of Friday night's football game at Canyon High.

This young man did a fabulous job on his trumpet solo.

Friday Night Lights

I finally made it to a football game. My daughter Heather is on the dance team but due to a sprained ankle was unable to dance tonight. She did march with the band and is hoping to be back to dancing again soon. Here are a few shots I took of the events of the evening. More photos can be found on my other blog.

The Friday Night Lights against a setting sun.

I always wonder if it intimidates the other schools' bands when our band pulls up in so many buses, followed by their own, custom painted semi which holds all the instruments.

Sitting right on the edge of the field gives me opportunities for some close ups of the band.

Skywatch Friday

Ok, so I did not take these photos...my husband Marty did. And, they were not taken anywhere near Seguin. He took them while on one of his many flights homeward from a recent mission trip to Brazil. But, hey, they are of the sky!!!

Be sure to visit other skywathers here.

I'm still digging up stuff from the archives to post as I'm still not out and about much lately. I'm not sure what kind of flower this is. It's not blooming but I liked how the photo turned out anyway. If I remember correctly I took this in my mother in law's yard.

Skywatch Friday

I apologize for the long delay in posts here. I still haven't been up to being up and about taking pictures so this one's from the archives and is a sunrise I captured in the mirror of my car one morning last summer.

Be sure to check out more skywatchers here.
