Foto Friday- "Still Life"

To say the last few weeks have been busy is an understatement, so picture taking has not been at the forefront of my attention lately. I don't even think I finished my February challenge...Oh, well! However, I have missed the taking of pictures for a purpose..that need to remain creative somehow. I also miss my Foto Friday themes. So as late as this might be on this very busy Friday night, I wanted to get to this week's Foto Friday theme I picked up from Photograph Life..

"Still Life"
Here is my interpretation of what that might be.
 I was also in a black and white mood, so here it goes...

Christian is turning 15 tomorrow, and I was just watching him in disbelief that our first born son is becoming such an awesome young man (sniff, sniff). As I watched him being totally comfortable and doing homework, I reflected on the fact that he's at a point in life where so much of who he is self directed. He knows what he needs to do, and does it, and does it well. 
He came home with a beautiful progress report with 4 A's and 2 B's. 
He's doing something right!  We couldn't be prouder.
 Happy 15th Birthday Christian!
 I love you!


 These two are more of my interpretation of "Still life." This is the stuff that stays still around and all over my house when I can't get a chance to get to it. These "things" become semi-permanent fixtures until I have the time or more so the energy to actually put stuff away. Like I mentioned earlier, its been a busy couple of weeks and I'm heading into another busy weekend, so we'll see when that energy kicks in. Can any of you relate? I hope so ; )

(These pictures were edited in Picassa ~ Orton-ish)

Ok, so now that I accomplished my goal to remain creative...I can move on to my weekend. 
We will be celebrating Christians 15th Birthday with his friends and our family.
Can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend too!

Happy Foto Friday, from my corner to yours...
