Orange ... SOOC

This week's theme for Shoot & Edit/Good to WOW! is orange.  Alex has this orange jacket that he wears all the time, so orange was a pretty easy theme for me.  :)

At last week's final soccer practice, the leaders surprised the kids by breaking out the parachute for some play time.  The kids loved it!

Then when soccer practice was all done, the kids each got a medal for participating.  Alex was so excited, he actually stood still long enough for me to snap one photo of him.  :)  Then he was off to play at the playground for a few minutes.

A few weeks back I was admiring the gerber daisy that was growing in my flower bed.  I'm pretty sure I took this with a macro filter attached - probably 10x.  Now there are 3 more flowers blooming!  I hope they stick around for a while.  We're not supposed to get any frost this week, although it has felt cold enough the past couple days.  But it is supposed to be 78 degrees next Sunday!  I love the crazy temperature fluctuations of fall!

Oh, and did you notice?  I now officially have 100 followers!  Thank you!  I'm am truly honored and humbled that 100 people are interested in my little ol' blog.  Even though probably half of you never even visit anymore.  :)  And since I completely forgot about my blogoversary being last Sunday (September 25), I'll be hosting a giveaway this week to celebrate both occasions, so stay tuned!  (Gotta love a good teaser, right?)  :)
