Currently Reading: Still on Runaway Jury. Ooooh, it's getting juicy as the trial enters the 4th week! (Rubbing hands together in glee) I'm up to Ch 24:)
If you'll remember, yesterday was The Great Picture Roundup around here.
-Plan A (box of picture doubles/negatives-remember those??- in bedroom) revealed mostly pics of the 'new baby' and faraway shots of my now-17-yr old.
-Plan B (MIL's box in utility room) revealed some cute pics, but only used two.
-Plan C (crate in storage unit) unveiled a treasure trove of memories. Me, six months pregnant with him (did not use, never fear!); old football, baseball, and basketball pictures; receiving his Arrow of Light award; other BSA pics; class trip to Connor Prarie; practicing his baritone; Funny Hair day (he had me shave his head in a criss-cross pattern one year, and dyed his blonde head red the next); posing with his Honor Roll certificate; the MIL's retirement picture, with a bunch of curly paper taped to his head.
The Parent's Group prez had very thoughtfully provided an envelope with the letters of each boys' names already cut out, and three pictures of our darlings on the field. Since mine has hardly seen any field time, there was a rather blurry shot of him running onto the field, sandwiched between two other players. I carefully cut around him (I am rather proficient with a pair of scissors, lol!) and glued it to the top. I had not taken my camera, so if I am able to get a picture of it, I'll post it. Some of the moms used scrapbook fabric; my daughter and I arrived equipped with scissors, glue sticks (okay, so I had to go buy them!), and markers. A set of glue sticks at Walmart was $1.42; a package of six was $2.22. I chose the six-pack, which two other moms were very grateful!
Today's To-Do List:
-Writing (geez, it's been an entire week!)
