Frame-A-Day Week 35: 9/3-9/9

This has been an extremely uninspired week.  I went back to work, and it's busy with the start of a new semester, so taking pictures is taking a back seat right now.  We had three solid days of rain to boot, so some of the pictures I did take were forced to be inside my very dark house.

But anyway, I did get some photos, so here we go.

September 3--A Yard of Popcorn--Trust and I went to a craft fair today. I couldn't resist the kettle corn on the way out. I used Chretien as an excuse to bring the big bag home as a gift for 'him'.

 September 4--Pick a Puppet, Any Puppet--Cleaned out the bedroom this morning and found various puppet kits which the kids had fun playing with.  Trust is sharing her creativity with the camera.

September 5--Just the Two of Us--Here are Chretien and I with our traditional ride on the merry-go-round to finish off another busy day at an amusement park.  We're chilling on one of the big seats with the kids are on the horses behind us.

September 6--Triple Time Out--Tonight was not a great night in our household.  All three kids were acting like they were possessed when I got home from my first day back at work.  Chretien and I both had enough and gave them time outs in separate corners.  To their credit, the kids stayed put for the most part.

September 7--Tough Guy--Not sure what Imp is doing here, but this was the first of the fourteen photos I need to take on Wednesdays, when I'll be out of the house from roughly 6:30 AM to 9:00 PM.  Thankfully, I now have a Smartphone that can take decent photos when I'm away from the kids, but I would still prefer to take photos of our life and not just my life.

September 8--Who is this Third Grader?--Trust is working on her homework, which was to color and complete the figure with words, pictures, colors and even numbers to describe who she is and what she knows at the beginning of third grade.  Do we sense that we'll have an "end of third grade" Doppleganger sometime in June?

September 9--Bitten Boy--Although you can't see it in this photo, Imp had just been stung, mostly on his face, by about 6-7 yellow jackets which have a nest under our deck.  He had tried to retrieve a soccer ball and met with some resistance.  It was a bit harrowing, as I held his head in my lap as Chretien examined him and removed a few stingers.  As soon as the last one was removed, Imp proclaimed that he felt better, but I still called the doctor.  That made us all feel better, as she believed that any severe swelling would have occurred by the time we were speaking.  Poor baby.


  1. I love the photo of Trust cutting out her homework. Very cute and she did a great job!

  2. Great photos. I love that first shot. Lots of popcorn. Poor Imp. Glad he didn't have a reaction. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Yum, kettle corn. It's been raining here all week too and we've got cabin fever. Poor Imp. I hope feels better. It's so scary when they get stung and you don't know how their body will react. Have a great weekend.

  4. Well- no surprise here- I love the little "Dad's my hero" shirt- makes me wish my boy was still little so I could buy him one!

  5. Hi!
    Great snapshots! The popcorn and rides are great shots and hope poor Imp is feeling better. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  6. Poor Imp! :( Glad it wasn't THAT bad.

    Love the third grade project! And the photo of you and your husband on the merry-go-round. Nice tradition!

  7. That popcorn is crazy! I love it. :)

  8. I'm not sure which photo I like better - the yard of popcorn *my favorite popcorn!* or the time-out chair. That one is just absolutely adorable!
