Frame A Day '12: Week 21: 5/20-26
May 20--I Did It My Way--Today was the school fair. The kids had a great time playing
the games. Unlike his brother, who hooked the duck in record time, this
fishing pond gave Imp a run for his money. Eventually, after a few
minutes of trying the old-fashioned way to hook the duck, he tried a
new, more successful approach.
May 21--Brownie Soup--Don't let the name fool you...this was not a dessert, but rather, a soup
made by a Brownie as part of earning a patch. It contained the broth
being added here, rice, vegetables of your own choosing (we had green
beans, broccoli and carrots), and red kidney beans. I made honey rolls
to go with this, and there were no complaints for dinner tonight!
May 22--A Decade of Digital Photography--Chretien and I met online twelve years ago today. For our second dating
anniversary ten years ago, he gave me this camera, which was my first
digital camera. It came in very handy for all the wedding paraphenalia I
just had to photograph and share on Wedding Channel. It was a nice
little camera, and served me well for 5.5 years until I received my
Pentax DSLR for Christmas 2007. Once in awhile I use it, but now with
our cell phone cameras, I rely on it less and less.
May 23--A Stitch in Time--Chretien decided to sew the patches on Trust's Brownie vest and pulled
out the big guns since there were quite a few that didn't iron on. This
was his first time with a sewing machine, ever, and he did pretty
well...until the needle broke on one of the patches. And yes, he was using a pretty heavy duty needle. I had my doubts, and I hate that they were realized.
May 24--Tonight was when we get to visit the kids' school as a sort of open house. It's always fun for the
family to go and have the kids proudly show us what they've been up to.
This was Earnest's first one as a student, and he was so excited
to show us the many projects hanging around the room. Here we see him
adding his name to the overlapping circles on the Venn Diagram
May 25--Celebearation of 100 Million Friends--Build a Bear is celebrating the creation of 100 million friends this
weekend. The owners of said friends are invited back to Build-A-Bear to
obtain a "celebearatory" T-shirt. This picture pretty much sums up the
kids' personalities. Trust happily does as she is asked, Earnest
obliges but might rather be doing something else, and Imp does
whatever he wants and thinks it's funny(note the upside down penguin).
**May 27--Take Me Out to the Ballgame--We went to a baseball game tonight. This was towards the end of the night, when we were on our way out but stopped to watch a very late rally. This is not the photo I am actually using for the day, but I will go with this one, which I still like, to preserve anonymity.
