Ready for College Already?

Jerry and I took the little girl on a walk around UNM’s campus this afternoon to enjoy the warm weather. I love the catch lights in her eyes as she claps with joy here. She definitely enjoys getting out of the house to stretch her legs.

When she discovered this bike rack, she couldn’t get enough of racing through the tunnel. I kept the camera’s focus mode in AI Focus (Artificial Intelligence Focus), but should have switched to Al Servo for more consistent tracking of her quick movements. Most of the time, the camera guessed right and the setting was much better than the One Shot focus I tried earlier in the day. One Shot is great for still subjects, because you can lock focus and then reframe your shot. But, One Shot is horrible for a constantly moving toddler–almost nothing was in focus on that setting.

Jerry had a tough job keeping up with her this afternoon as she ran in every direction. He was careful to take hold of her hand when we stopped to watch the ducks at the Duck Pond. I think if she had her way, she would have gone for a swim with them.

She had a blast looking for things to climb on and we had a time keeping her from falling down.

After more than 6 months of walking, she’s finally able to crawl without a gimp leg. She’s ready to travel the long road.
