What the Beck?
Today’s photos are of the next generation: my great-nephews.
|Nicholas is the oldest of my great nephews. |
He is frequently quiet and reflective and a great hugger.
Here is his with my Mom, his great grandmother.
|Let's open the presents!|
|This pirate has just opened my present to him, a Transformer.|
|He truly loved the pirate "stuff".|
|Uncle Shane is trying to get his sword.|
Next, comes Colton ....
|Colton and Dad share a moment|
|Colton begins ripping off the paper as cousin, |
Wyatt, watches his technique.
|The boys are all busy with the presents |
in Kim and Greg's living room this year
|This is one of my favorite pictures of Colton. |
It was taken at least a year ago, and has been my screen saver
ever since. Colton has eyes that take your breath.
The final great nephew is one year old Wyatt.
|Wyatt gets help from Dad, Tim, |
in opening this year's present
|This is one of my favorite photos of Wyatt.|
I love this baptism picture.
|He is such a happy little boy. |
He loves balloons, running, and his Grandpa.
|This is the intellectual Wyatt - college bound.|
I am a proud Godmother.
I was reading April 2014’s O Magazine when I read an article written by Brene’ Brown. After reading this article, I sat there thinking about my behavior and that of those I know. Brown stated that we all judge people a lot, which is a waste of time. She said that we need to examine “WHY” we feel the need to be so judgmental. What are we getting out of it? I thought this was important to look at myself and try to be less judgmental of others. The first step is to be mindful of where I am coming from while judging others. I love it when I read an article that helps me improve myself.
Irksome Ideas and Images
As a teacher, one of my pet peeves is when kids dog ear a page in a book. Doesn’t everyone know that that is what bookmarks are for? I personally love Post-It flags. They are smaller and stay where they are put. So if you are one of those bend the page down people, invest in a bookmark please.
