You win some. You lose some.

Every month during our seven-kids-for-the-weekend adventures, I have this ridiculously lofty goal of getting a good picture of them all together.  Its almost like a competition between me and them.  I'm not sure they know they are playing, but if we were keeping score they'd be WAY ahead.

Today, I think I learned a couple of strategic lessons.

What does work.
Bribing with marshmallows.

AND What doesn't work.
Trying to teach seven kids (aged 7 and under) how to do "jumping" pictures.

I guess I forgot to tell my professional photobomber that he shouldn't jump directly TOWARD the camera.

They might have been laughing AT me instead of WITH me.

I think they win again!
