Well you all know that a while back our Dwarf Hamsters had 7 little babies. While they were still 3 weeks old the mom had another batch of 5. These are ready to go to the pet shop now and what a surprise when we wanted to clean moms cage there were 2 little ones…… I am totally confused the dad was not near her and yet she still got 2 new babies….

Today Armand had a cricket match and he was so excited about it.
Armand is not in the A, B or C team, he is in the D team. The boys of the D team are full of spirit and willing to better their game.
One boy came to me and said I am not a good batsmen or bowler I need to work on my batting. He went in on number 3 and was bowled after facing 3 balls. So I told him that everyone can’t be a batsmen or a bowler some are just fielders. We need good fielders too. He smiled and took off his gear and said that I can do.
When Armand went on in spot number 6 he was supper excited and told me he want to stay in as long as he can. And then the first ball he faced was from a spin bowler and it happened so fast. He was out for a duck. He could not believe it. He came to me and said ” Mom I am so disappointed in myself.” My heart wanted to break for him. But I just told him it happens to the best of cricket players also. Next time he may hit the same spin bowler for a six…
One do not always realize that kids can also be disappointed in themselves and some parents would go of and tell their child how useless they are. I think this is why so many children out their trying to proof to their parents they are not a failure no matter what. I think it must be hard always seeking approval and just get blown off. I try my best to let my boys know I am proud of them even if they are out for a duck.

I just love photographing dogs. Since a little girl I loved dogs and cannot resist calling and playing with them. Everyone always said be careful the dog will bite. Till today I can only remember one dog biting me and that was a little dog that got out and bit my ankle. I turned around and patted it and since then he never came after me.

It is Mid October and still raining. The best of all there are snow on the mountains. Unfortunately I could not photograph it because of all the clouds.
I took my camera with when I went to pick up the boys at school this afternoon. It was raining the whole time. When I was in school many moons ago in October we were swimming and had a stunning tan already.
