Two hundred and thirteen

This shot really should go with 210 and 211. It is another photo from my parent’s house, when we had to move back in for a few months. I was swinging on the bench swing. You can see their house in the background. You can even see my Dad back there by the gate. I had some free time before I started working then. My kids and I spent a good bit of time outside, even when it was hot. I really like the quote that goes with this one. Sometimes it is hard to come back home, but it never really does leave you. Happy with this shot.

 It was a unseasonally warm day. The kids and I took a walk over to a near-by playground. I maybe thirty years old and the mother of two children, but I still love to swing. After I got my kids going, I did some swinging myself. I love this shot. I managed to get my legs and my complete shadow, while swinging and it’s in focus.
