Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

This week’s Photo Challenge is more difficult for me, because I am far away from my home, and because I wanted to find photos that expressed the feeling of home, more than the brick and mortar house which I call home. People make a place a home, and my daughter is one of the most important people to me.

Here she is, goofing off with kids she was coaching in baseball.

The coach in action:

My daughter and I have called this softball field our second home for many years. High fives for us both!

Kids, after their game, running through the sprinklers. The essence of home.

These were all shot just a couple weeks before I left home and moved across the country. I have yet to find a community that feels like home, or a place (other than work) that is my home away from home. Until I do, I’ll keep dreaming of the day I can return with my daughter to our softball field!
