and a lot more fun!
|Yes, she's that much taller|
|They each had their own kind of cupcakes.|
|Adam was really into it. He kept trying to get us to keep it up for a certain number of hits. I think we got up to about 14. But sometimes someone missed after the first or second hit.|
|Wearing Uncle Adam's hat|
|Not sure whose hat she has here.|
|On the side of the island we can access, there isn't any beach area.|
|Travis came along.|
|Without a beach, we play in the water.|
|Beach volleyball is our new thing this year.|
|I think we look like castaways on Gilligan's island.|
|The project had a very small yellow container for a flower, but the ones they let them choose from were way too big to fit in the yellow container.|
|See how much bigger the plant is than the yellow container? I had them just take it separately. The teachers can always use the yellow container for paperclips or something.|
|Kaleb taking his to school. Kayla ended up staying home that day because she threw up.|
|Ty helped her decide on materials.|
|He coached her, but she had to do it all herself.|
|Trial run at home. Sadie was helpful.|
|The boat got an 85% the first time because it started filling with water. She was allowed to fix it, so she hot glued all the leaky areas. She also added a rudder made of two little wooden ice cream spoons (like come with the little ice cream cups) and tapes on with electrical tape hurriedly the day it was due.|
The boat got a 98% on the second try. She still has to finish her log book and make her backboard. The backboard has to be made at school to make sure the kids do it themselves.
School is out for two of my kids June 1 and Kayla on June 2. There is a lot coming up between now and then.
How about you?
|We used tripods so we could use a long enough exposure time for things to show.|
|The sun was setting as we went out.|
|This picture and the next were taken just moments apart but at different exposures.|
|These were taken in the dark by painting the flowers with a flashlight.|
|At home, we experimented with how long to hold the shutter open. I had too much light on this one.|
|I like this one better.|
|Jasmine took these drum pictures|
This has too much light
This is better. I think I like the first one best.
I think painting with light was my favorite part of night photography. Overall, night photography isn't my thing. I wish I could take the portrait class, but it's while I'm out of town this summer.
