Wordless Wednesday – My son the artist, wii with my cousin and fried corn.

Since I’m failing miserably at keeping my #project366 up to date — here are some photos from the past two weeks! I’m starting @fatmumslim’s photo a day challenge tomorrow. I used her image prompt as my desktop’s wallpaper, maybe… just maybe it will help me to remember to take that daily photo!
