I'm posting this June 2006 sequence of photos for my friend Lu because her son has a similar umbrella And she shares a cute photo earlier this week in fbook. Hope you like it Lu!
It's crazy to think it's easier to crop & edit photos on my phone than it is in my PC... Sigh.. I emailed them to myself and edited them on the phone and I'm also wiring the post from my phone. That's our "brave new world" -- tiny computers at our fingertips, not genetic engineering and safe drugs. ;-)
I'm a Brazilian immigrant (used to say expatriate, have problems with this word now), living in the U.S. since 1996 with my husband and two sons (born in March 2002 and May 2004). I'm a mother, first and foremost, -- mamãe in my mother-tongue, hence the (e) of the blog title -- but after "ten years and two sons" I finally finished my Ph.D. in literature in 2008. After six years away from teaching (including a year home/cyber schooling my sons - 2009-10), I'm finally back in higher-education. I've been blogging here for eleven years, so welcome to my site and feel free to stay for a while and look around. Our lives are a roller coaster, never lacking in ups and downs! ;-)
