Future POTUS material?

So do you love the clip-on tie clipped to a t-shirt? No way was I busting out the dress shirt. Bad enough I had to dust the shoulders of his suitcoat.

He had to do a news report recapping 1976 as a class project and since he was partnered with…a student with a more fluid sense of responsibility, let’s say…we ended up doing it at home, alone, with my video camera.. I don’t know how to feed video even if I wanted to, which I don’t, but that picture cracked me up, so I thought I’d share. And, just because catching genuine smiles from the Tall Kid on camera is a rare phenomenon, I’m sharing the one below, too.

    The second picture is one of my new all-time faves of him.

    And after the second time B stayed after school only to have the fluid child blow him off, the teacher called me to let me know B will be graded separately. While working with a partner was important because it’s probably B’s weakest skill, the other kid barely made an effort so the teacher’s going to make an exception and grade them individually.

    The ending of the 1976 recap was funny: My father was a United States Marine serving as a jet mechanic stationed in Arizona. My mother was four and probably played with dolls.

    I love that picture of him, you need to get that printed and frame it. He looks fabulous!

    So does the…fluid…child still get credit for the project? How does that work if B. ends up doing it himself?

    Oh my lord, that’s priceless!

    And I second Angie’s suggestion–print and frame the second picture!
