Photo Play and Our Day!!


So Jim made it to the podium, recieved his diploma - sorry no pic. of him - but am ever so proud, so were the kids!! I think it was wonderful to have them see the ceremony despite the fact that it was three hours long. They were troopers and I was also very proud of them too!!

So what do you do with kids after a very long ceremony? Well....cake and punch and.....

and....

But then......

After I took this picture - the unhappy faces were explained - I was using telephoto - Fox was quite bent and Nonni in tears - someone had knocked her over and given her a bloody nose - Big brother and Mom were quite bent. There was a large group of elementary students there and the teachers were nowhere in sight. When I found them lunching and paying no attention to thier charges - I expressed my very not happiness with their lack of supervision. Nonni was fine and Big Brother Fox helped cheer her up....

with a stroll along the beach....looking for all sorts of fun things...

And.... I finally got a few good pictures of handsome Fox......


And we wonder why all the girls love Fox - look at those peepers!!!

So sorry Nonni had such an encounter. But glad it all turned out well. And Fox is a handsome young lad.

It is always nice to see photos from you. You are such a warm person that it is hard not to see a special kind of quality to your pics as well. :)
