Season's Change...Week 42

Season:  one of the four periods of the year (spring, summer, autumn, and winter), beginning astronomically at an equinox or solstice, but geographically at different dates in different climates.

Every morning on our way to my daughters school  we go past a ranch with a long row of big trees that surely change with the seasons but we hardly notice.  My kids and I have decided to embark on a project that will help us notice that gradual change on the trees.  My daughter Sophia  will take at least a weekly picture after school for a whole year, I will post it on my blog entry on Thursdays and my little one Xavi wants in it too so he will take a picture of some cows from a different ranch and improve his picture taking skills.

Yup!  We're rushing again to the post office, the library and the grocery store. 
This picture was taken on 8-17-11 and 'on the go'

Cow story:  the cows we used to take pictures of have been missing since December.  Kids are on the lookout!

We had the opportunity to go with my mom and dad to a doctor's appointment.

In old town Chula Vista, CA

Is that a sign??  Do we need to wait patiently in order to find those cows?

I know for a fact that patience is a virtue

No cows in Chula Vista but a dog

And since it was a tiny tiny doctor's office I decided we wait outside.

And we walked around the block

Somewhere near this block is where I took my Senior picture for High School! 
(you don't wanna see that trust me)

This summer vacation is almost over now and those cows no where to be seen! 


  1. Ohh qué gracioso, mi marido vio hace dos días una peli, una comedia, donde salía Chula Vista y pensó que era un nombre falso y cómico y justo ayer vimos una serie de casos reales de policia y volvió a salir Chula Vista. mmmm tercera vez que escucho, o leo de ella en una semana y nunca antes había oido hablar de ella.

  2. Your town looks great. I would love to see that photo of your senior year :) that would be awesome to see! Have a wonderful weekend. x
