In August Tom took a 3 week trip to the U.S primarily to spend time with our kids and his parents, but also to gather some needed supplies and take care of a board meeting for our charity.
He dedicated one day of his trip to each of our kids and his parents. Each one was able to choose what they would like to do for their day. He visited the museums with our history major, took our oldest daughter car shopping, went bowling with our second daughter, etc.
Then he took all five out for an outing to Kemah Boardwalk. You might remember some of the fun we had as a family there a couple/few years back. These interesting pictures were also taken there.
Just before leaving Tom told everyone to quickly get on the steps for a family picture. It was unposed and unrehearsed and yet it turned out perfectly.
The only problem: Troy and I felt left out.
What a great family picture and we were missing from it.
Someone commented that we should be photoshopped in, and Troy took on that challenge.
Here it is!
Isn't that great?!
Troy's skills in Photoshop, graphic design, animation, and video editing are coming right along. He has a real future in it.
Here are a couple of his latest projects.
This one freaked me out!
He called it 'Finding the Funny Side of Me'.
So technology perhaps can't erase the feeling of being left out, but it can erase the evidence of it.
