I'm back!

Where does the time go. I've had a little time of rest, but I've also had to get books and lessons together for the upcoming school year - lots of meetings to attend. There've also been several doctors appointments - I think I've had more blood drawn than should be allowed.

We went on our camping trip last week - about an hour and a half away in the Los Padres National Forest. Everyone - including the dog - was looking forward to it.

Manzana Creek ran by our campsite and the kids spent many hours splashing and keeping cool.
There were many frogs to catch (and the dog did her share of chasing tadpoles).
I did manage to spend a little time drawing some of the scenery and even a little frog who posed for me on top of a rock. It was hard to find as much time to draw as I would have liked with family hikes, meal preparation, etc. I brought watercolors along, hoping to do some color studies, but never got around to it.
I'll share some of the sketches I did next time as I haven't uploaded them yet.

Well, tomorrow is the first day of soccer games.
And so it begins...
