James came today and showed me these pictures - I laughed hysterically!! He's planning to take funny shots every Friday now he says. Take a look at these ... oh my goodness!
This last one is an early shot, he said. He set his camera to take rapid shots and took ~200 photos, of which these are the best. I said, James, these are amazing! When I saw them, I thought of Mission Impossible, below. And it's perfect. It's James, levitating, in front of a laptop! He has one as his profile picture now on facebook. It's very appropriate - a laptop should always be in pictures with James - he loves computers and is majoring in IT.
Mission Impossible: this is James
Doesn't this remind you of Chronicles of Narnia? A lamp post, in the evening ... beautiful sunset ... ahhh.
James made homemade chili for mom today for Mother's Day. He said it was terrible, but I don't know what he's talking about - it's amazing! He thinks he added too much cumin. Bah. It had great flavor. Very meaty and filling. Perfect with rice. It is REALLY spicy though. Dad says he put jalapenos in it, so that's probably why.
Relient K has been one of James's favorite bands for a long time. Well, at one of their concerts recently, he got to meet their lead singer and took this picture with him. He turned out to be a really nice guy, spending about 5 min talking to each person who came to meet him. James was really impressed. I have to say that I am too. Here's the picture with them both. Hats off to famous people who are actually nice, down-to-earth guys.
James and I went to Tribble Mill Park. I took a paper with me to read, but I didn't end up reading it much. We watched the ducks and geese with his binoculars. We looked at trees, bird feeders and bird's nests. We watched people walk and listened to kids scream. And we climbed a tree. The tree was awesome. Great times!! I love climbing any trees I can, and this one was perfect for it.
