Someday, I fully intend on getting a picture after I've showered, done my hair, put on some makeup, and am not wearing anything with elastic in it.
That day is not today, though.
Obviously. However, today was the day where my firstborn son proudly showed off his Fantastic Four coloring page that he's been carefully working on for the last two days.
Meticulous. Very, very meticulous.
(also, I really dig how it looks like the paper is coming out of my nose. I think it sets off that ginormous facial feature)
The Jude took the picture, but only because Joaquin promised him that he could have free access to the aforementioned coloring page, the better to study it and copy it exactly.
Very rarely to I see The Jude this peaceful and focused. But when I do, Joaquin is usually involved in some manner.
Good times. Good, good marker-y times, courtesy my mom and dad, who sent us a giant box filled with school supplies the other day. The kids have been in coloring pages heaven, what with a treasure trove of pristine crayons and markers at their disposal.
Next up: Snapshots.
So the other day, Ken made some suggestions about Snapshots that I like; I think I'm going to try one of them out this month.
Instead of assigning everyone a specific time (and feeling really horrible when Fate presents poor Bobbi with the redeye shift for the 3rd month in a row), this month we're going to try having everyone take a picture at the same time.
Let's say, oh, 4:00p.m E.S.T.
In other words, every person who wants to contribute should take a picture as close to 4:00p.m E.S.T. as possible.
I think it'll be interesting to see what we're all doing at the same time- which is why I'm specifying taking the shot during the Eastern Time Zone's 4pm. It'll be as close to freezing a particular moment and sharing it across space as time as possible.
For you visual people:
I'm looking forward to seeing the final result. I think it'll be an interesting modification.
