August 10, 2008 – I took this picture of a some kind of huge bee. We had zipped up the gazebo when we spotted him buzzing around. He was the size of a small hummingbird. After looking at him lying on the table in some sort of spasms I may never kill another bug in my life. Look at those eyes.
August 11, 2008 – My son is so happy in this picture. We had been holding hands and spinning. He had crayons in his hand saying they were like a rainbow. I snapped this just as I let go of him while spinning.
August 15, 2008 I went and got my nose pierced. I have wanted one since college and never did it. The other day my husband mentioned that he was going to tell the mortician who embalms me to just pierce my nose, “she always wanted one.” I decided then and there that I waited long enough. I took my kids with me, my son held my hand and it took all of two seconds for the piercing, 3 minutes of bleeding which started 2 minutes after he was telling me that it was amazing that I wasn’t bleeding. Then about 2 days of a dull ache.
Ok, I digress..The picture…my son waited 3 weeks for this Blue’s Clues chair. He had to sleep in his own bed (not come in mine in the middle of the night) for 10 days. Every day that he did he got a Blue’s Clues sticker on a special calendar. When we finally gave it to him blown up (he was allowed to have it the whole time just not blown up – for 5 days it was in the box and the remainder, the box was opened but it wasn’t inflated) he was ecstatic. His face was priceless andhe walked around saying, “my chair is so beautiful.” This is him in his sister’s room playing X-Box.
