Can you tell what time of year it is?

A challenge! Can you tell what time of year it is just from looking at these two pictures? :)

First, we have my eldest son, bribed mightily, posing for a picture (greatly against his will.)

"But MOM, you'll just post this on your blog!"
"Of course I will, honey, smile now! And here's a buck."

Isn't he just too cute?



But, he was feeling like he rather resembled a Q-Tip with all that hair (personally, I didn't see the resemblance, but he wanted his hair cut - WILLINGLY - so who was I to argue.)

I chopped and snipped and assured him repeatedly that I was almost done. And, voila! We have one shorn sheep. I mean, BOY. ;) Who is richer by a whole buck.



So, can you guess what time of year it is? ;)

Let's see.... ????? Almost Fall? Back-to-School time! You have many skills.

Chris said...

WE HAVE A WINNER! ;) Yep, back-to-school time it is. They started back yesterday.

I feel so... FREE! ;)

Skills? Do you mean hair-cutting skills? Oh, I'm pretty sure there a few kids running around that would debate that very heatedly, but thank you very much. :)

You think your pic on my blog is worth a BUCK? That's a lot of my hard-earned cash, Speedy!! I hesitate.

Chris said...

Okay. FINE. You can have the buck. And here's the lasagna (missing a few bites).

I feel bad because you've been so -er- pooped.

What a great haircut! I always like boys with short hair...even though the trend these days seems to be toward long.

Chris said...

HI Beth!

I like him with short hair too. Plus, it's easier for him to manage on school mornings.

I hope you are doing well!

intrepidideas said...

Leave it to Speedy to try to hustle in on my winnings.... Drag!

I am the Weiner! I mean Winner!

Chris said...

Hi!

That Speedy! Don't worry, I didn't let him steal your glory. :) Because that's all the prize was this time... glory. ;)

Next time I think I'll offer a REAL prize. Other sites do that so why can't I? :)

intrepidideas said...

I think Glory is a great prize! Thanks.. I'll keep the Glory!

Chris said...

I think you are right! :) Some people search their whole lives for it and here you got it just for figuring out a question. :)
