Her school assembly was this morning. I’ve said it a lot lately but Allan has been crazy busy at work, working early to late and missing a lot of life. But I insisted he be at this assembly where she would be recognized in front of the school. He came! I meant to get a picture of Sierra and Allan together at the end but she was so overwhelmed by then that I didn’t even ask her, I just let her go to class. I know my Sierra and she would’ve smiled sweetly for a picture to please me but it was more important for me to let her be done (she’d had a lot of pictures taken already!) than get that shot with daddy. I might take a picture of them together when he gets home from work tonight. If it’s light enough still!
Then he wanted to see it on the back of the camera. And while I showed him Ember was begging to have her picture taken. And because it took ten seconds longer than she wanted to she pouted quite a bit.
Despite it being hot and all of us being sweaty by this point, Payson begged me for his usual “Spiderman on the rock” picture.
We also saw Brooklyn in the assembly, sitting with her class, and waved and then saw her again outside walking back to her classroom. She was happy that we stayed to wave at her. I didn’t take a picture, though. She would have been embarrassed!
