When the girls were performing at the high school football game for their spirit clinic, I took the opportunity to take some pictures. The sun was quickly setting and I was having fun trying some shots.

I took this while a few band members were playing the National Anthem.

Then at the pumpkin patch this past weekend, I got a few shots of the kids.

I love this one because Erv was in the middle of some serious pretend play in the cab of the combine….I like the candidness of it.
