NaBloPoMo: #19 Easter Tulips


Here's The Baby Angel at nearly three years old. She is a complete treasure. Trawling through the albums full of pictures for scanning, I am stunned by how poor many of the shots are. I don't think I realised at the time. They just helped me to crystallise memories which are clear as a bell in my head; it's only when you try to select for scanning purposes that you notice the fact that she is a tiny dot in the middle of a print or that her face is covered in shadow or washed out by a flash or fuzzy because you were on a train when you took the photo!!!! They help me to remember, but they make damn poor scanning fodder. This is one of the few up close shots so it has actually scanned well.

Now I have lots of other things to post about but I'm just sneaking this in now (during lunchtime) before I get ready to tackle the Year 9 double lesson of History I have timetabled after lunch. Having already had them for 3 lessons before recess I am emotionally drained and may not be capable of posting ANYTHING by 3pm!!!!! As one of them said to me

"Five lessons of history in one day is too much for anybody Mrs A."

This afternoon we're tackling Ned Kelly, the iconic Australian anti-hero. Wish me luck.

I love comparing her smile in this shot to the smile on your face in your "about me" section. Even though hers is just three years old, you can see how similar it is to yours. Fun! She really is a cutie pie.

A very cute picture! I know what you mean about some of the earlier photos. Some of mine are atrocious!

Oh, she is adorable! I know my earlier attempts at photography aren't all pearls, but it is the memories that are important. :)

Hey, quit complaining about having the same kiddos all day long! I have 20 7 and 8 year olds from 8:30-3:30 EVERY DAY!

Just kidding. There would be something so refreshing about switching kids around...

BA is growing up so quickly, right before our eyes. She was a beautiful baby and now she's an even more beautiful little girl!

Good point. I'd almost forgotten that part of my life!!

Did you know that we have a Ned Kelly's Steak House chain over here in the states? Complete with Ayers Rock ribeye. Funny, huh?
That's a darling pic of BA. She's starting to lose that baby look in that shot.
