Where's Mom?! 37 Photos of ME!!

Are YOU a mom? Are YOU missing from the pictures? Most moms I know are, but here is a fun meme that brings us moms out from behind the camera and puts US in the spotlight! Carin over at Forever in Blue Jeans is the hostess of this year long picture project; and just think, after a year, you will have at least 52 pictures with you in them! It can be scary, but com'on, give it a try! It's easy, all you have to do is hand over the camera and smile (or not, it is completely up to you!!). And the best part is, you can jump in and start whenever; for me this will be my 37th week!
You all know that I love Colin's teacher, who was also Brendan's teacher last year! Well each month she assigns book reports in different genres and types. In September they had to do a Cereal Box Report. For October the genre was sci-fi and the type was a story skeleton! Colin read Aliens for Lunch and this is how his story skeleton turned out! I helped him decide what to write, although he had to come up with the ideas since I have not read the book! He wrote all the cards and I put it together with paper clips...each 'bone' has a different element of the story on it such as characters, setting, problem, problem resolution, and what Colin liked about the book. The 'head' of the skeleton was the main character's face! I think he did a great job, if I do say so myself...oh wait, I just did!

Now it's your turn to join the fun...hand the camera over, say cheese, and smile!
