how i won the nightly homework battle

IF IT WORKS GO FOR IT, WE DIDN’T HAVE TO MUCH OF A FIGHT FOR HOMEWORK, BUT THEY HAD TO EARN THEIR ALLOWANCE, IT WENT PRETTY GOOD. Getting them to eat, another story.

making it up as i go

When my oldest daughter started bringing homework home (i think i twas the third grade) our school nights became a battleground. my daughter would bring out every arsenal within her power…and it was exhausting. i dreaded homework. my daughter didn’t understand homework was non-non-negationable.  she wanted me to do it. i didnt want to. she didn’t want to…i had to end it.

I am retired and photography is my hobby/passion. I take tons of pictures but I especially like wildlife and nature. We took a trip down the coast and were at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. At the time, I was still using film, and was at the tail end of a roll, so I went to finish the roll before the nest show went on. Well, it was Spring, and new born chicks were everywhere, so close at the time you could practically touch them. That was it, I was completely hooked, as I had never seen so many birds nesting at one time. We were in the middle of a natural nesting site. The chicks were so close and so cute, I couldn't wait to upgrade to a digital camera. I spent a lot of time on the boardwalk snapping away. My first camera was actually a Kodak Brownie, and then I progressed up from there. I just love Photography, and I took Scott Kelby's Course (Shoot Like A Pro) . It was a great day.
