I had so much fun playing with these photos last night in class! I really was wishing that I could have stayed much longer, but my neck and shoulders told me to stop, so I listened. I have to do some physical therapy next week for that. Yuck. So I'm going to try and take care of myself while I'm undergoing treatment. We will have a chance to work on these some more in class next week, which is good because I don't feel quite done with these and I have a whole other one that I haven't even started on.
