2018 Catch the Moment – Week 13

Hello, and welcome to another installment of Catch the Moment! I didn’t remember to focus on any themes at all this week, but that’s ok. I still got some cool snaps during our pretty laid back week. I also formatted them a little different through Lightroom this week, so let me know if they look better or worse than usual!). And, here they are…

085 | Mon, March 26 ~ This is the face of a very bored, but very patient, little boy. We went to the diabetes education meeting for Joe, and learned all kinds of stuff about diabetes and nutrition. I just thought he looked so cute behind all this fake food. It’s too bad he doesn’t love fake food the way I did when I was a kid. I would’ve been playing with everything nonstop. But he just wanted to go home! Luckily, he soon got his wish and we did not, as he feared, stay there forever.

Catch the Moment – Week 21

141 | May 20, Fri – Let me tell you about Homer meeting Dolly the Pony at Fox Hollow Farm. He was SO scared! He insisted on getting off immediately the first time he got on. I think his butt was in the saddle maybe a full second before he was back up and “Nope, nope, nope”-ing his way out of there. Then my sweet friend, Shoshana, told him more about it, how it’s wobbly but fun, and the pony didn’t go very far (her daughter had ridden shortly before Homer tried). Then she said, “But if you don’t want to, that’s ok, too!”

And she inspired me! She made me realize that there was one more thing I knew I could offer, and if he turned it down, I’d know he wasn’t ready yet. “How about you try it just for a few steps, until Dolly walks next to that tree? And if you still don’t like it, just tell me, and you can get off,” I said, and pointed to the tree about five feet from the the starting point. “Ok!” he agreed.

So we got back in line, and when it was time, he sat in the saddle, and we started walking. He nervously giggled and marveled at it the entire time. “It feels like she’s about to start running!! But she’s not running! She’s walking! Good pony! Good girl, Dolly!” It was so incredibly cute! I’m ridiculously proud of him that he was willing to do it even though he was scared. He did so awesome! Look at this smile!
