Frame-A-Day Week 37: 9/10-9/16

More of the same as far as lack of inspiration.  Some of it is the going back to work thing, and I'm just not home with my regular subjects (kids) to get some fun shots.  Some of it is just not feeling all that inspired.  I think when fall truly arrives (and not just the cold weather that has sort of caught everyone off guard), I'll be back in it.

But for now, this week's shots:
September 10--When You Wish Upon a probably have sweet dreams. At least, I hope he did.

September 11--This Little Piggy--We went to a local fair today. It was a nice little fair, complete with the expected barnyard animals,an array of delicious junk food, and midway fun.

September 12--Zippy New Sneakers--Trust needed new sneakers with better traction for soccer, so we went to Kohl's today to buy some basic sneakers. She is showing off how quickly she can run down one of the aisles, now that she is wearing her new sneakers. I knew exactly how she felt; so light on her feet with the new sneakers.

On another note, I just can't get the hang of the camera on my Smartphone. However, in this case, my unsteady hand adds to the illusion of her fast running, so I'm fine with it.

*September 13--First of (Many, Many) Homework Assignments--Imp had his first ever homework assignment--an "All About Me" page to complete.  Chretien interviewed him to complete questions like his favorite colors, friends and food.  Trust and Chretien both helped him color the page, and I printed out a family photo, a photo of Imp, and a photo of Miney and Moe for his pets.  All in all, a true family effort.  (Note that the real photo is of the homework assignment, but in the interest of Internet security, I can't post it.)

September 14--Lazing Around--This photo of Trust watching a show was taken at 6:25 AM. The kids get up early, especially with my new schedule this semester of leaving between 6:30 and 6:45 AM. They are intent on sending me off in the morning, but it makes for a long morning for Chretien with a school start time of 9:10 for Trust and Earnest.

September 15--Goin' on Vacation--Imp came downstairs and announced that he was "Goin' on vacation."  He was all packed, except when he was probed for specific plans ("Are you going on an airplane?  No.  Are you driving?  No answer.) he hadn't seemed to have thought this out yet.  As an aside, this is one of those pictures similar to the one posted on June 27th of Trust, where we spy a little bit of what Imp is going to look like when he gets older.  He doesn't look like the sweet little boy here, does he?

September 16--Happy Birthday to Me--Today was my birthday. I had a regular work day, but the real fun started after school. We went back to our old stomping grounds in had dinner with the kids at a restaurant we hadn't been to in seven years. Then, home for a deliciously rich cake and 'nesents' as Imp calls presents.
