Shoot Me: 21 of 52 - Rainy Day MAC Edition

I've been absent from Shoot Me as I've been swamped at home, but getting back into my routine means getting back to Shoot Me, so I'm jumping in today, albeit at the end of the day. 

We broke with our regular routine and joined some friends at the MAC today.  Some of our former home-schooling friends started traditional public school this year and school is finally out for summer, so Buttercup didn't want to wait to see them.  So, despite the rain, we headed into town to visit for a few hours.  On the way out, I handed the camera to my friend and said, "Hey, take a picture of me with my kids for my blog!"  She laughed and complied.

So, here you have it, me with Buttercup and Valiant for my 21st entry in Shoot Me!  I don't know if I'll ever be "caught up", but I'll definitely do all 52 pictures...I made the commitment and I'll stick to it.

The first thing I noticed when I saw this picture?  Valiant is taller than me!  I don't know if he's really taller than I am, but he's sure looking that way here, isn't it?    How weird is that?  The second thing I noticed?  I really need to do something with my hair.  I just wish I knew what.  Sigh. 

Shoot Me is the brainchild of Carin at Forever In Blue Jeans...a year long project in which you include yourself in at least one photo you snap each week.   I'm still a week behind, but I'm catching up.  Carin Says:
It's time to stop hiding behind that camera of yours. Your family is missing you in the picture. So it's time to post a picture of YOU (yes, you) every Thursday with your child, your spouse, your friend, your dog, or even by yourself. Just get in the picture, you'll be glad you did! And just jump in now with 1 of 52, you can do it!

Ahhhh-the never-ending dilemma of what to do with one's hair! I wish I had some advice for you on that one, but I'm constantly looking for that perfect hairdo, although I think I'm going to stay with longer hair-at least for now. Great pic of you and the kids. Have a great weekend.

How funny I noticed immediately that he was taller as well. In this family though, its not terribly surprising. Both of his Uncles were over 6 feet by his age. Glad you guys had a nice visit at the MAC.
