Over the holiday weekend, I made DH take me to two local cemeteries so I could take a few pictures for Find-A-Grave. We didn’t stay long – about an hour combined, but during that time I got many pictures for uploading. Perhaps my favorite part of the whole experience was how involved Kaleya (who will soon be 6) got in the process! She and/or Jihad have been to the cemetery with me before, but this was the first time she declared that she was going to take pictures too. It was by chance because I asked her to hold my phone while I got my digital camera ready and off she went with the phone while I used the camera!
She had a ball. From getting in close to take good pictures….
to brushing leaves off the headstones so that the names could be “read” (or in her case since she’s still learning to read.. “seen”)
she was such a great helper and enjoyed it.
Now, of course she still has a thing or two to learn about taking pictures Comments heard in the cemetery,
“Mommy — my shadow got in that one!”
or – “Ha, ha! my fingers were in the way!”
But, she did quite often get pictures that were excellent.
She’s definitely going back with me next time I go I was truly amazed.
