May 28: Matt the Bear.
Matthew earned his Bear badge in Cub Scouts this week. Each badge comes with a corresponding mother's pin. Part of the ritual of advancing in rank, is for the Cub Scout to pin the bear pin on his mother's lapel.
May 29: Self portrait.
I can play the guitar for months at a time (not without stopping, duh, I'm only human!) and then let it sit for months at a time too. I recently picked it back up.
By the way, this is a "C" chord -- "C" is for Chris!
And cookie (that's good enough for me).
We've had a LOT of amazing evening skies this week, and Saturday was no exception. I framed this shot through the rails of the fence in the front yard -- that's why it looks like it's in Widescreen format.
Even standing "still," Emma vibrates with energy.
June 1: Remember those amazing skies I was talking about on Saturday? Well, Monday night was the light show. I have never tried to photograph lightning, so this evening I sat on the back deck, listened to the rain, watched the show and tried to catch lightning.
This was the best shot I got, but the experience was one of the most relaxing things I've done in a long time.
June 2: In 2001, we started a Christmas tradition of putting our kids' handprints on a white shelf each year, that we keep our Christmas media (cd's, books, dvd's) on. It's been a fun way to mark the growth of our children.
The problem is, we don't always get right to the handprinting.
We finally put on Christmas 2008's prints this week. Now we can put the shelf away for the next six months.
I can hear you asking "Why bother at this point?"
Would you like to know what a romantic I am? I know that today is the fifteenth anniversary of the day I asked Sharon to marry me!
Happy Anniversary, Sharon.
I love you!
