Digging in the Dirt - trinalin thinks things through
Digging in the Dirt
For the 2009 Newton Local School Groundbreaking Ceremony (held yesterday, March 27), I was chosen as one of the staff representatives to turn over some dirt. I was pleased to be chosen and I asked dad to come along to the ceremony. (Well, I'd've asked him anyhoo, but since I was gonna be in it, he agreed to come along.) And thankfully he brought his camera and took some photos. Yay! So now I subject you folks to photos. (I've chopped everyone else out of the shots since most of 'em are school age kids and thankfully in the first photo, all the kids' backs were to the camera.)

I wait in line (well, a line of sorts) for my opportunity to turn some dirt.

I'm posing with several junior high and high school students for the ceremony. We were the third official dig group. (After board members and administrators.)

Alas no. Didn't get to keep it or the shovel. (Though the little ones they had dotted about the field were cooler.)

Thanks! It's sort of a permanent feature on my face. (This sometimes makes discipline rather difficult... Heh.)

I hear ya there--though that merely reminds me of what you said about thinking DT will age well given his cheery nature. ;)

Yesterday's photo session once again proved that when I think I'm looking blank, I invariably appear to be pissed off instead (which has been true for my entire 'adult' life--points for consistency there, I guess). All tendency toward snarkyness aside, I'm very rarely pissed off, so I can only guess this stems from being sufficiently shy and non-sociable enough for this to have manifested itself thusly. *HEAD DESK*
