Anyhow, tonight I was tipped off by Thomas's leader (the amazing Mr. Quentin) that Thomas would receive the prestigeous award of "3rd GRADE BOYS CLUBBER OF THE MONTH". And, he wanted to know, did I have a camera ready?
Yes. And no. I had a camera in my phone, but it takes THE WORST pictures. I really mean it. The. Worst. Here's the proof:
I clicked the stupid phone camera a good 2 seconds before this image. All I got was this delayed reaction to Thomas receiving his award. It was a gigantic pixi stick AND I MISSED IT. Lordy. I wanted to see him receiving said pixi stick and shaking Mr. Hallman's hand and smiling widely with pride. It wasn't meant to be. If it was "Three Word Thursday" I think I'd use this with Phone Cameras Suck as the title. The green AWANA shirt looks teal blue, the award is a blur and Thomas's face looks like that face you try to see when you look at the moon on a clear night.
After laughing a bit at myself and the really horrible picture I got of the exciting moment, the Blessed Nora Fuller exclaims, "Why, I have my camera, right here in my purse!" and she proceeds to whip out the cuttest little camera you ever did see and snaps pictures RIGHT THERE like it's no big deal. Wow. I guess that's what happens when you've raised your children and become a grandparent. You are always prepared with a good camera that fits in your purse.
|Me and my proud Thomas. Oh, and the Pixi Stick.|
