Not Back to School: "student" photos!

Not Back to School Blog Hop

Despite the fact that I think my children are, like, all amazing and wonderful and stuff, I realized when I sat down stood up at the kitchen counter to write this that people I don't know aren't gonna wanna look at a random photo of each of my kid's sweet, smiling faces.  'Cause that is boring.  Check me out with my high level of self-awareness.

Aha!  Collage of Antics!

But because I am a neanderthal, I've never made a photo collage before today.  I know, right?!?!?  I should just get in my time machine and go back to my cave.  Those bison aren't gonna draw themselves, ya know.



This is my long way of explaining to you why it is practically dinner time and I am barely posting this.  I mean, I had to do all sorts of downloading and googling and telling my computer what I thought of it when things were "not responding".  Respond, I tell you!

It was hard work, yo.

But because I pretty much have the tenacity of a pioneer, I persevered and am able to bring to you these glorious works of art (and just so you know, I just typed the word "cart" 3 times before I forced my fingers to write "art".  Pioneer on the brain much?)

So, without any further further ado, I present to you the Borobia homeschool class for the 2011-2012 school year.....

Katie, 5th grade

Lizzy, 4th grade

Paul, Pre-K

And so I will never be accused of favoritism, a collage of the baby as well, even though her "school" will primarily consist of learning not to lick the window screens...

Dude....you would not believe how long it's taken me to put this post together.  Sheesh!

But be forewarned: many a picture collage will follow now that I've mastered the art of clicking on things.  Go me!

  4. Thanks you guys!

    Jess, I used Picasa, which turned out to be really easy once I figured it out. And my ultra fancy laptop started responding :)

  6. Oooh, maybe I can do that! Someday.

    I'm starting think that maybe it took so long because I had children climbing on me and then cereal spilled on the keyboard and then there was that diaper situation.....

  11. I bet you cash money the hardest thing to teach will be teaching that baby not to lick window screens! What is it with babies?!

    Also, awesome picture collages. I'm impressed.

  12. Very nice collages!!! Not to diminish your talents, but I think those beautiful kids really do make the collages that much better :)

  13. I think I love you. I am pretty sure I do. My name is Sharon and I surfed over here from Betty Beguiles. Basically the line, "I like my sacraments Catholic and my beer cold" is nothing short of genius. and the fact that you throw around the word "yo" and you spelled "ado" instead of "adieu" which makes me mad. So yes. I'll be back, yo. :)

  14. I heart Picasa. The collages look great and it doesn't hurt that the kids in them are so darn cute.

  15. @Sharon- I sure hope when I click on your name it takes me somewhere wonderful where you are in charge, because when you suggest that I'm a genius, I pretty much instantly love you too!

  16. Funny! No, I am a real person with a crappy blog. My friend (from California, too! Are you from there? I grew up in Northern CA) just sold her house, quit their jobs and moved to Tennessee on a whim. Funny coincidence. Anyway - like I said before, I think you're fab and I can't wait to read more of your stuff. xo

  17. Love Love Love and you are just too funny. Great job with the collages, lady.

  18. Your collages look great! And, um...learning not to lick the window screens is super important.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aw...cute, cute, cute kiddos. I can appreciate all the effort you put into the collages. But, pray tell, could you tell this cavewoman how to pull together a collage?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Okay, that's it. I'm going to do a a Picasa collage tutorial. It'll be my contribution to the good of the world!!!

  21. Love the idea of a collage! I think I'll be doing this in my scrapbook this year!

    You can order these from lots of places now cheap.

  22. Awesome collages, friend! And, seriously, cute darling children!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love them!! I love every one; worth the effort! You should hang them somewhere school-related, like over their cubby holes or something ;) I would love to go to your school!

    And if you want to get crazy with the collages, picnik.com is where it's at.
