This is the time in my week when I look back at the images I've captured
the week before, and choose my seven favorites.
These seven--one for each day of the week--are featured below.
Last week's highlights include summer storms, a spelling mistake, and an emotional homecoming/send-off parade. Here we go...
The week started off with another typical Chicago August downpour.
 August 20 -- Morning downpour
I perfected a pesto recipe.
 August 21 -- Homemade pesto with pepper
Another spectacular morning storm--incoming.
 August 22 -- Another summer storm
Can you spot the spelling mistake? Seriously--it's a college campus.
 August 23 -- Misspelled
I finish up this week's post with just three images (there are over 100) of a Marine's homecoming and sendoff parade/party. Doug was home for barely a week when he was the recipient of a very special parade sponsored by Operation Welcome You Home. It was also considered a send-off event, since he is leaving in just a few days to go back to Afghanistan.
His sister stood with him as he was surprised by the parade.
 August 24 -- Big brother Marine
One of the many gifts of support he received.
 August 25 -- Because of the Brave
His mom was so excited to have him home!
 August 26 -- Marine and mom
What a great note to end the week on. :)
