April has been busy...

Another month has gone by and we just seem to have gotten busier.

Hayden has started soccer and he is having a great time. Faruq is coaching the team and they seem to have a great group of kids. They only play for 30 minutes but Hayden is pretty tired when he gets home.

Gymnastics starts on Saturday so it will be another outing for daddy and Hayden. They usually make a day out of it...going for lunch then gymnastics and stopping at the Farmers Market for some ice cream afterwards.

I have started another photography course - Advanced Digital Photography. The courses are getting a little harder but I'm still enjoy it so much. We got to visit our instructors studio last night and it was probably one of the best classes yet. So nice to see how a professional works in a studio...it gave me lots of ideas for my own studio.

Our first assignment was to "Portray color". Here are a few of the shots that I submitted.

Our landscapers are back so we are really hoping to have our lawns finally finished. Hayden has been itching to get out there but it's just big dirt piles.

Lastly, we are the proud owners of a Wii. I was at Wal-Mart a few days ago and they announced they had a received small shipment of them. I grabbed it without even really talking to Faruq about it. He had said he wouldn't mind one at Christmas but they were very hard to find.

Well they set it up last night and I thought Hayden was going to die laughing as he watched Faruq play the games. They seem to have a ball so I guess it was a good investment.

I haven't been doing a lot of digital scrapbooking but hope to get back to it shortly...just seem to have lost my mojo again.

Until next time...

Happy Easter

Well the Easter bunny managed to find us again this year...Hayden was pretty excited when he got up on Sunday morning. He and daddy had a ball trying to find all the eggs that the bunny hid the night before.

So yesterday was pretty much chocolate, chocolate and a little more chocolate. He got a Bob the Builder DVD and a new puzzle which were both big hits.

I wish I could say that it looks like spring here in Calgary but sadly it looks a little more like winter...It was a lovely day for Easter but we are expecting a big snow fall tonight. When will it end....it is the middle of April !!

Hayden is off for another week and he is certainly enjoying the break from preschool. Faruq is taking the rest of the week off so we may take a little road trip to Lethbridge if the weather is good enough. If it's not we are just going to chill out at home and enjoy each others company before we get back to it next week.

I finished my second photography course last week and will start the third one next week...it's "Advanced Digital" and I can't wait. I'm sure it's going to be a great course to learn lots of new techniques.

That's it for now...I will post a few Easter pictures when I download the pictures from camera !
