A new tradition. Each Friday I'll pick a (possibly favorite) wave photo from last year's corresponding school week and share it with you, along with some additional commentary. This first week, our favorite wave photo goes out to Anakin Skywalker. We could say it all began when Dale and I innocently waved at Rain's bus on Day One. Or we could say it all began when Dale quietly declared "game on" and donned the Chargers helmet on Day Two. But really it was Day Three that got the waves going. It wasn't until Day Three that I pulled out the camera and said, "I've gotta take a picture of this one!" [The Chargers helmet just wasn't that far out of character for Dale. He and his brothers have been known to gather around the TV in their Chargers jerseys. They even have some game where they take turns wearing the helmet. Not quite sure of the rules on that one.] And yes, that does mean the photo for Day Two was a "retake." I missed the original shot, so I made Dale change into the Charger's clothes from the day before for a photo.
And where did the encouragement come from? Facebook friends, of course. Before there was the blog, there were chuckles on facebook. Here's the first post:
Then it was officially the start of the blog. With fun encouragement from one of my sisters, Suzanne, I spent about 15 minutes creating the blog on Friday morning (the third day of school).
So today's Flashback Friday Wave goes out to Anakin Skywalker. The Force was stronger than we knew.
