I have a busy day ahead and I have a husband on an overnight buisness trip so it's really early in the morning and I'm throwing this up here before the day takes off and sweeps away.
Yesterday I took my kids outside to get a picture of them together, preferably looking at the camera, and maybe even smiling. In the past this *little* project has been a frustrating nightmare and I fully expected more of the same yesterday. But a funny thing has happened in a year.
My kids have grown up. My youngest is now 2 1/2 years old. So when I say stand here and look at the camera - she actually does it! And the boys did pretty good forced smiles too! It was totally amazing. The whole process took 15 minutes and no one died.
I took the pics with an old school, film camera so that I would have no delay time when I hit that button to capture the moment... so pictures of the photo shoot as well as pictures of harvest time in Iowa will be along as soon as I get a cd made this afternoon.
P.S. - to tag onto yesterday's post I just want to say that I learned this morning that all the miners are out of the ground and I am very happy and thankful. It was a miracle of a circumstance for sure.
