I'm so funny, aren't I? This was a picture taken at cross over. Five of my six boys. I don't have their parents' permission to post their photo on the blog, so I made them all happy faces. I did something else to the photo, can anyone figure it out?

Cross over was Thursday night. It was a wonderful experience. Yes, I cried. I was so proud of the boys, and they just seemed so grown up.

Thomas is on the mend. He really shouldn't have gone to the cross over. I broke my rule of not taking him out and about less than 24 hours after a fever has broken. He'd been on antibiotics for 48 hours, though, so I hoped he wasn't contagious. It was, after all, a once-in-a-lifetime event. Another boy in our den missed the event because he had exactly what Thomas had, only he had not started antibiotics until the day before. Sadly, he stayed home.

We did not do school all week. Thomas is much better this evening, and I think after the weekend, he'll be ready to do school. Our plans were to take Monday and Tuesday of next week off to coincide with the public school's vacation days, but I've decided to just forge ahead and do school anyway.

Our project for the weekend is to figure out how to transfer files to the new computer. Neither the CD or DVD drive is working on the old computer, and the USB port will only recognize the printer so we can't plug the external hard drive in. Ugh! I'm also having a bear of a time figuring out the new Outlook Express in XP. I am such a creature of habit and behind the times. I'm hoping my dear, sweet husband will wave his magic wand and make something work. He is an engineer, he loves a challenge, so hopefully he'll be up to the task.

Ha, ha ... clever you! At first, I thought you added a ton of badges/awards to T's uniform ... then I enlarged it! I'm guessing it's the son of the unfavorite Cub Master. ???

Have you checked your peanut butter?

Why did you crop yourself out???? I bet you looked great!

Mama B said...

Hmm I notice that there someone there with NO head or smilie face. Would that be you?? Glad to Thomas is feeling better too.

Also on the PC a not so great but it worked for us option is to remove the harddrive from the old computer put it in the new computer and see if the new hardware will work enough to get your files off of it onto CD/Flash etc. Then put the new one back in. Good Luck!!

Hope everyone is healthy.

Congratulations to you and Thomas for the big day. From all you've written about Scouts, I know you've each done so much work :)

It took me a minute of searching to figure it out. Very clever. I wish I could do that with a bunch of pictures. It seems that despite your claim you are quite savvy with the computer. I hope that Thomas feels better soon.

I love the new look. It is so easy to read.

Glad y'all are doing better. :-)

Thanks -- I had fun trying to figure out what else you had done to the pic -- even though I was late (the 10th person) to comment.
