Michelle’s Vogue Look

The sun is in her eyes, so she’s squinting, but I like this picture. Michelle never, ever wants her picture taken, so this is always a challenge. But the color of her shirt and skin complement each other well. I also like the soft background contrasting with the detail in her face. This is the sort of […]

Matt Showing for the Ball

We really enjoyed attending Matt’s games this fall. He played JV for Troy High School and although he probably didn’t get all of the playing time he would have liked we were very proud of him. Brad Noll, a sophomore and big brother to Michelle’s friend Amy is also pictured here. This was the final […]

Uploads and Thumbnails

Introductions

If this works as expected I will have a way to keep everyone up to date on how the Pappas family of Troy is doing. I’m going to budget time to keep this updated on a weekly basis. Now I understand that this is at best impersonal. This blog doesn’t replace my occasional (at best) […]
