Joy is learning how to walk properly on the balance beam, and dismount. They also have exercises on the trampoline to help with poise, posture, and balance. She loves it!

Well, Labor Day has come and gone. And the last week of summer has been exciting to say the least. Well, some parts of it were exciting. I got a good tip on a gymnastics studio in Huntington Beach and Joy did a free lesson. As you can see, she LOVED it. I bought her a leotard (which she lived in for 2 days) and signed her up for classes. Not sure when they start as she will be the 3rd girl in a brand new class.

In a previous post I showed you how well she has come along in her skateboarding. At the beginning of summer she could barely scoot along. Then she was introduced to a cruiser. Now she can zig-zag, do hills (sort of, hops off if she goes too fast), and can confidently tackle the skatepark. That was a field trip with daycamp. I have the feeling that as soon as she can swim without floaties or a life-jacket she’s going to ask for a surfboard. It’s the next logical step. I’m a bit relieved that she wants a cruiser more than a regular skateboard. You can’t do tricks on a cruiser. 🙂

WWdN: In Exile: classic photos redone in lego: Fans of Lego, photography, design, history, or things that are just plain awesome* will love this photoset on Flickr, where Flickr user Balakov has recreated famous photographs, from the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima to Maradona’s infamous Hand of God, using Lego minifigures and close-up photography.

Links to the original photos are included, so you can fully enjoy how incredibly awesome this is.

I’d like to point out that Balakov has released all of these images under a Creative Commons license, and is offering prints for sale.

Come on, seriously: how much does this rule?

Uploads photos automatically from Eye-Fi Card inside your camera. Built-in Wi-Fi connects to your home network

You Shoot Photos, Eye-Fi Does the Work
Uploading your photos to your computer and getting them where you want to share and print them is often a complicated and tedious task but Eye-Fi will do all the work for you, giving you more time to take more pictures and create more memories.

Upload to Computer
Uploading photos to your computer requires that your computer be turned on and running the Eye-Fi Manager software. When it detects the Eye-Fi Card on the network, photos will be uploaded into the folder on your computer that you choose. You don’t have to bother with cables or camera software; everything is automatic.

Upload to Web
Eye-Fi also supports photo sharing and printing websites including Kodak Gallery, Snapfish, Shutterfly, Wal-Mart, Photobucket, Facebook, Webshots, Picasa Web Albums, SmugMug, Flickr, Fotki, TypePad, VOX, dotPhoto, Phanfare, Sharpcast and Gallery. It will automatically take care of log-ins and passwords, and it will even resize your photos if necessary for your chosen site.

Upload to Computer and Web
If you choose to have your photos delivered to both your computer and online, the Eye-Fi Card first uploads your pictures to the Eye-Fi Service, which then sends a copy to the website and one to your computer. In this mode, the Eye-Fi Service will hold onto your photos and deliver them to your computer the next time you turn it on. The photo that is sent to the website might be resized, but the one sent to your computer will retain its full resolution.

The included Eye-Fi Manager makes it easy to change preferences, letting you add wireless networks, change destinations, and adjust other settings.

You could see the black smoke from miles away yesterday. This is actually off the 405 near the Carson/Long Beach border. There were 4 fires, but 2 were really burning something off.
