  Well like other "hobbies" you have your rare moments with the camera in hand and the other you can only retell because the batteries are DEAD...LOL

P2 (son) has his hands full between his animals and school. He will be in talenated art next year and at the start of this year (2011) he started gifted classes.

I need to uploaded current pics, but I have to find we I placed it last.

P2 loves his S. Buttercup that he has left. She is 4 pounds on a wet day and she hatched her very 1st egg this year. She is in the mist of molting, so no eggs from her yet.

Have a great weekend.
