Pesky Papparazzi

Yesterday was Shea's first day back at school. Like most mommies, I wanted a photo to capture the day. I knew I wasn't going to get a shot of him all excited to return to school. For that, I would have had to substitute some other kid.

I didn't think it was too much to hope for a picture of him as he headed out to the school bus though. Silly boy avoided my camera the whole way to the bus stop. Here he realizes I'm still following him with the camera.

So, he dodges behind the car. He's the little bump of hair sticking out above the trunk.

Cleverly camouflaged behind a fire hydrant.

Stick like enough to blend behind a sapling tree.

And he makes it to the bus stop.

With the help of the new camera from Uncle Michael and its zoom powers, I can be certain he actually got on the bus.

Maybe if I stake out the bus stop this afternoon, I can sneak up on him. I should be able to get a shot of him smiling when he's done for the day!

AH! Tis the season - I was just thinking that it must be back-to-school time for some folks. You are truly a stealthy Gmom. I see a career in Private Investigation in your future!

My kids are the same way. They KNOW I have to have their photos for scrapbooking and blogging, but gave me crap about it anyway.

Love Gettysburg. We were just there a couple weeks ago. Can't imagine being able to live there. Lucky you!!!
