Frame-A-Day Week 30: 7/23-7/29

July 23--Never Too Old--We went to a playground after dinner tonight.  Chretien shows us that you're never too old to ride the tire swing and play.

July 24--It Just Looks Like a Box--The boys must have enjoyed our trip.  When I asked them what they were doing with the air conditioner box, they told me they were flying on an airplane.  The best part?  They could both fit in it and close the top.  They'll likely be looking for more legroom, though.

July 25--Sous Chef--With the older two off at Vacation Bible School, it gave Imp the perfect opportunity to help me in the kitchen.  We were making chicken tacos, and he enjoyed dumping the ingredients into the crockpot with gusto.  Too bad he didn't relish the dinner as much as its preparations.

July 26--Crazy Hat Day--It was Crazy Hat Day at Vacation Bible School today.  The kids knew immediately which hats they would wear; the ones they made on vacation with Gran.  Although they didn't win any prizes, I still think their hats were the most unique by far.

July 27--Nappy's Puppets--Trust and I went to a shadow puppet show at the library today.  The puppeteer was Jim Napolitano, better known as Nappy. 

July 28--Mohawk Man--Following on the heels of the successful "Crazy Hat Day", we had "Crazy Hair Day" today.  Earnest sported a simple Mohawk style with a little bit of gray to distinguish him.

July 29--He's Got the (Holy) Spirit--Today was the last day of vacation bible school Chretien, Imp and I went to watch the kids sing a few songs.  Earnest has made progress, as he did not participate in the end of camp songs at the end of the festivities at VBS in June. 

I have a request.  It just occurred to me that in September, I am going to have a problem on 14 Wednesdays to easily capture a picture on those days.  When teaching starts up again, I will have to leave my house by 7 AM, and I also teach an evening class on Wednesdays, so I won't be back home until about 9:15.  Sure, I can try to capture a photo of the kids in the morning before I run off, but I'm sure I'll forget on some days.  By 9:15 in the fall, it'll be dark when I arrive home, so I won't be able to run outside and do something there.  I am thinking of stockpiling ideas so I'll have something to photograph that day, so if you can suggest possible subjects, I'd appreciate it so I'll have something to photograph if I don't get something in the AM on those Wednesdays. 



  1. Love the Mohawk. Looks like a great week. Thanks for linking up.

  2. Loving that one of the box- kids have the best imaginations!

  3. Hi!
    Great snapshots! Love the box picture. How shooting something in your house, like furniture, shoes, cooking, food, or the kids sleeping. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  4. Too cute that they both fit in the box. Olivia talks about flying every time we hear an airplane. Love Earnest's mowhawk.

  5. looks like a fun week. there is nothing better than playing in a box. Makes you wonder why we spend money on toys
