And it has begun!

Yesterday projects for our county fair started going in and being judged for our fair next week.  Today was the first day that we had one due.  It was Photography.  Little Man decided to have a go at it.  Maybe it's seeing me point a camera at everything, maybe it's the fact that he tries to grab my camera and try it out here and there.  But I was excited that he wanted to give it a whirl.  So we went out and he took some photos of different things, at different angles and in different light.  And I tucked my hands in my pockets and bit my tongue and let him do what he wanted and how he wanted.  And I have to confess, it was sooo hard. But I did it. And then he chose which 10 he wanted to use.  And a good friend came over and gave him some awesome tips on how to do his poster board.  So when Mr. M got home today we loaded up and went to the fairgrounds.  He was called up.  Spoke with the judge and she looked at all of his pictures.  She asked a few questions.  Then he walked back to us with a cheesy grin.  He got a BLUE!  Not too bad for his first time around.  He liked it enough he wants to try it again next year.  And Little Miss too!  She will be a first year 4-Her.  So maybe for Christmas we can get them point and shoots of their own.  Because I can't have them both wanting to borrow my camera.  I would feel empty without it.  So here are the 10 he chose.
