The Best Thing I Learned this Summer

I'm linking up with some of the most awesome SLPs I know to talk about the best thing we learned this summer. Some are linking with speech things, some are personal.
Summer is over for me, so I really had to think back over the past couple of months to come up with something.
My first thought was: July is too hot to go camping on vacation in the Outer Banks, but then I thought, "No, I already knew that." 
The best thing I learned this summer was how to use my "big girl camera". My husband gave me a Canon Rebel for my birthday, and then encouraged me to take a class to learn how to use it. I had so many different pieces of advice: Keep the camera on auto until your comfortable or take it off auto. I was pretty confused! I ended up taking a class at a local community college. It lasted for 5 weeks, and the instructor was amazing. Here are a couple  few of my favorite pictures that I snapped this summer:
Inside the Ocracoke Lighthouse

Wildflowers in my sister's field
A young squirrel that allowed me to get pretty close to him as he raided the bird feeder
Sunset in the Outer Banks
