The May splash photo is first in a series of five, to be spread out over the next ten years. Rachel is our first daughter, our first teenager, our first graduate. One down, four to go. This splash picture was taken at the local playground, nothing fancy. We were out on a misty rainy day, frantically trying to get some senior pictures in so I could put together a graduation announcement for Rachel. I had everyone together, so we did the splash, too. It was all working against us - the rain, the reluctance of a few of us to even be there, the other people at the playground, the looming deadline of getting announcements in the mail - but there it is, in spite of it all. A fantastic picture of my five beauties. My BallTeam.
