Ana Family Photos

I need to have one more “interruption blog” before I continue on about our wonderful spring break trip.

For those of you who don’t know, I teach preschoolers who are deaf and hard of hearing.
I absolutely LOVE those little itty bittys BUT I could not do it without this lovely lady named Ana. She is my assistant and has become a close friend.

Most importantly, she keeps me sane on those days I am ready to rock back and forth in a corner.
(or takes over the class so I can go rock back and forth in the corner :))

Her and her two boys came over this past weekend so we could play with the camera and hopefully get some family photos.
I loved how opposite the boys are.
Gerardo was all smiles and couldn’t get enough of the camera, while Jordy was genuinely confused as to why this person with this black thing was in his face.
But my favorite was probably Ana’s photo.
Work and life can be stressful and it was fun to just hang out and take photos.

See?? Beautiful, happy momma! My favorite is between the one above and the one below…

don’t you just love his genuinely confused look?
I sure do.

Couple side notes…

1. thanks to Jedi Kelley for giving me the tips and tools to put my name in the pictures (What a cool thing right???)

2. recent pity party conversation with my hubs
me: I don’t know why I write these silly blogs. Noone reads it.
hubs: Yes, Melissa. They do.
me: No they don’t. It’s just plain silly for me write or take pictures or make a blog
hubs: just keep going. I like reading it
me: yeah, but I can just tell you, so it’s totally dumb. 

And then what happens? I’m humbled by my “busiest day” of 208 and views.
AND I get my second follower
(someone inspired by my blog….mine?! What?!)

So thank you to all my nameless and faceless blog readers.
I just saw you can add a poll to the blog. I just may have to try that out sometime.
I’m not sure what the heck I would take a poll on, but it does have the potential to be fun.
