11 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans


This is with my oldest son for his "Young Authors Tea" at school this week. Obviously his young author book is about dinosaurs. He read his book to me and we enjoyed cookies and apple cider (I guess this was the tea). It was a cute book and a fun time. I felt bad for the kids that didn't have parents attend so I had them read their stories to me while I was there. It was so great to get to see all the kids. I had worked there before my Lil' Man was born. I have missed seeing the kids grow and their smiling faces.

I must add that I was glad I started this 52 Weeks challenge. It was the ONLY reason I am in a picture from this event. Otherwise for simple things like this I would only have a picture of my kids. I'm so glad you are all joining this too!

********************52 Weeks********************
52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks.

As usual - great picture! Glad you could make it up to his "tea". I'm sure he loved having Mom up there to share his special day.

Kristen said...

You are so smart to do this challenge, I might start doing it jsut because I only had about 2 profile pictures to choose from and that was covering a 4 year span because I am always behind the camera.

What a cute picture! I'm sure those kids were so happy that they were able to read to you!!!! How sweet!!!!

I'm glad you started this meme too because I know for sure I would not be in half the pictures!

What a great time for the 2 of you. I also volunteer in my kids' school but don't think about taking a picture...it's part of my life, thanks for the reminder to capture that too.

What a cute picture! I'm glad you are doing this challenge. It is making me get in more pictures. I think this is great.
Thanks for doing this...

Sharon said...

What a great story and photo.
I'll bet the kids were glad that you were there to listen to them.
It is to bad more parents can't attend school activities with their kids.
Way to go.
God bless
It was -16 here on Wednesday.

Carin-great picture with your boy. I have to agree that this challenge always makes me think about what is going on that week, that I want to remember later with my kids. Usually it would just be them in the picture for THEIR event, but now...viola...it's them and me. Lovin' it.

I loved Young Authors Night when I was growing up. My parents still have the books that I had 'published'! What a fun memory & keepsake! I am sure that the day means a lot to both of you. And thanks again for starting this meme...it is so much fun!

carrielt said...

That is such a good picture of you two.

I'm also glad you started this challenge. For the last two nights on my way home from work I find myself thinking of different things I can do each week.

Carin said...

Thank you so much for each and every comment. They all mean so much to me. Truly, thank you.

Thank you so much for giving me something to read while I am at work wishing that I could be doing something else. We are really going to miss you all when you move. Keep writing because I need something to keep me entertained everyday.

I love this picture and this challenge idea - sounds like you guys had a fun time reading together!

Now that is one awesome photo of you and Bridge! You look like a teen in this photo. Best of all Bridge will have a reminder of what a cool mama he has...a mom who always supported him in everything he tackles. m-b

carrielt said...

You know I really think Lineman needs a blog. Can't you just see his co-workers taking pictures of him for his 52 weeks. He could take one up on the pole....falling down the pole. :) It's been a while since I gave him a hard time.

Allison said...

What a fantastic idea...I am starting at week 1! I'll be back for sure!

Leah said...

I really like this idea of pictures of Mommy! You'd never even know I lived in this household if you look at our photo albums...Mom's always behind the camera...I'll join in soon.
Thanks

D Benoit said...

If I want to start doing this, how do I add it on my blogspot? I'm technically challenged. Does the pictures have to be taken on Thursday, or can it be any other day during the week?
