Back From the Dead

Since cameras seem to have a short life span in our house I haven't posted any pictures in a long while. So I've decided to start pilfering the pictures that my sisters and other family members take of the kids. The commentary will be all mine of course.

I'm ready for my close up now

"Mommy,mommy! Take my picture!"

"Take my picture again mommy! Take my picture again!"

Baby Bird

I found this little one as I came back from a walk on Thursday evening. I assume it took a tumble out of the neighbour's arbovitae while trying to fly. I took its picture and left it alone. Friday morning it was gone. I hope it recovered and went on its merry way.

Look, it's Spiderman!

That's Ethan enjoying the present that my family got him when we all got together a little while ago. We'll to let him see the movies one of these days.

We made the news

(I posted this on my main blog last night. It goes well here too.)

Sophia made it into the picture of the day.

The caption reads: "Anya Burkhart, 5, center, attempts to catch some of the bubbles floating around the Upstate Cerebral Palsy's Promise Family Picnic Tuesday, April 3, 2007, to help celebrate Autism Awareness Month in April. Behind Burkhart is Sierra Larkin, and at bottom right is Sophia Pierce, 2."

This picture and a picture of me rolling up Isaiah's sleeve made it into the Utica paper today. I haven't been able to find that picture yet. We were visiting Isaiah's school for the annual family picnic.

If you're wondering why Isaiah is going to a school two counties away (two and half if you count the fact that we are in the middle of our county) it's because there were no programs for autistic children that we thought would be appropriate for Isaiah with openings any closer than that. It's a long haul out to Utica but it is the kind of environment that Isaiah needs.

Here's a photo of me struttin' my stuff with a couple of the other ladies from y dance troupe. This performance was back in January (I think).
