growth and change

If you turn your head to the side (I have no idea why blogger insists on making my pictures be vertical when I took them horizontal. Why on earth does blogger automatically make pictures of students' art work sit sideways? It happens every time. Can anyone out there help me?)... you can see the self portrait one of our five year olds drew in the beginning of the year. Check out the arms coming out of his head, the large fingers, the lack of neck, and the skinny legs. For August we were thrilled with this drawing, don't get me wrong. But now turn your head to the side again...

Same kid, in June. notice the neck, the small fingers, the legs with feet, the appropriate facial features, the details of hair.

This is why I love kindergarten.

Ha ha, I have a love/hate relationship with Blogger!

Are your pictures oriented the way you wan them on your computer before you upload them to Blogger?

Another option is to upload your pics to Flickr first and edit them there, then copy over the html to your blog post. That adds an extra step, but it should be fool-proof.

I'm certainly no expert, but I'm slightly obsessive over the quality of the pictures on my blog. Just let me know if you want help!
