My camera decided to break yesterday on my birthday. Lame. This little silver gem has traveled across the world, seen four camp summers, fallen many a times, been sent back to the Canon factory to be repaired 4 times, and taken thousands of pictures. But it punked out and started taking every picture like this.
I decided because it's my birthday I should finally go get a new camera. Look at how this new beautiful camera can zoom across the room with it's powerful 12.1 megapixels.
I've sent the old one in for a victory lap at the Canon factory and hopefully I'll have a backup camera this summer for mud hikes, campfires, and that sort of thing.
Today after a cookie cake eating, Family playing, peacock knotting kind of FBC I ventured down to the 7th grade Science fair to check out my kids' projects.
I loved seeing my students speaking so intelligently about the work they've done- the long lasting effects of perfume while playing Just Dance, hand-washing patterns, tendency to actually stop at stop signs, whether hamsters prefer bright or dull colors, filter systems, and soda's acid effect on teeth among other projects. I don't think I've ever been to a Science fair before but I'm glad I went today.
