Adieu, San Francisco - Episode IX

Recently there was some discussion on another blog about the dangers of posting photos of our grandchildren. I have given it much thought and I do not see any problems in posting my photos.M y granddaughter's last name is different than mine, they do not live in the same state and finding them from my blog would take a lot of research. I believe that a predator could find easier prey. My granddaughters are in much more danger from their own postings, but I know my daughter has carefully explained the dangers of the Internet to them and that they will not be foolish enough to meet with someone they chat with on line. With that in mind I am ending my California photos with one final posting of my two precious and much loved girls.



Sarah is engrossed in the picture puzzle I brought her.




This is Sarah after the Color Guard competition.



This is the happy team that won fourth place in the State competition on the following Saturday. Sarah is kneeling on the right.




Sarah also sings in the Choir and I took this picture after their concert.



Ciao, Rachel and adios to California. I have enjoyed the second trip and hope you liked my photo gallery.

Joy, I knew what your meant ;-). Yes, I thought their outfits were cute. And, yes, I miss them oodles.

I wish the internet had fewer dangers! But, like you, I think a predator would find it almost impossible to track down a child from a blog, particularly if no addresses were given. What awful people!!!

Good for you,Darlene, for posting the beautiful pictures of your Granddaughters.

I agree that it would be a shame to deprive all of us, your friends, from seeing how sweet the girls are because some awful person might be out there.

There are awful people everywhere and we simply cannot let them win!
If you had not posted those adorable pictures, those jerks would have won and that's just not right.

Your grandchildren are lovely. I know the internet has its dangers, but it sounds like your granddaughters have been taught good sense about it, and in the end that's the best protection, don't you think?

Great girls, each with their own beauty and flair. May their lives be blessed with safety and marvelous experiences!

Since I just got back, I have to catch up on your trip! Your girls are lovely and clearly you enjoyed their company. ( I also post photos of the kids, but am still careful about details.)
