You Are My Sunshine



Hiya! Becca here!

Ok, on Monday I didn't have to work until 2:00. My six year old cousin has been staying with us this week, and one of the things I told her we could do is play with my microphone.
I was thinking it'd would be a time consuming activity :P
I know I've had fun recording and playing with programs like garageband ever since I was a kid.

She did some silly things - like recording ten tracks of herself singing the chorus of "Lollipop" with like, a bunch of extra lollies. 😛

I wanted to try to do one "good" one to be able to show Memere, and her parents,
and this is what we got! So happy! :)

For the second time, she sang by herself and I recorded a harmony track afterwards. While I was recording the harmony, she jumped in "how much I love you" with a high harmony!! That surprised me! You can hear it kind of faintly in the recording. I don't know if she could've done it again. Trying to sing a harmony with her usually threw her off. 😏

After the recording, I got the idea for the video. We scrambled to find crayons and were taking about what pictures to draw ( mostly her ideas ) and drawing those pictures and taking pictures of those pictures -
then I had to go to work.

I put it all together when I got back that night.

Hope you like it! We had fun making it! 😊

Mission: Mismatched made...I need another m word...

Magnificent? 

that sounds a little boastful :)

Masterpiece?

Mystery?

Marvel?

I give up. :)

While staying at Shawn's parents house this week, I had the opportunity to do an upholstery project for someone who goes to their church. I guess a few people gave the gal my name when she was looking for someone to reupholster a pair of chairs she had.

"It's Not Over Yet"

Here is a random picture of a newly shed cicada. The campers named it Jordan. :)


Our assistant director at camp this week, who's name was Shawn (but he wasn't my Shawn :) ), was in charge of keeping things on schedule and ringing the bell to let the kids know when different things were supposed to start.

I hadn't really wanted my Shawn to come along to camp this past Sunday, because it had been a busy weekend, and I wanted him to have some time to rest before jumping into another week of work. But he asked me to check and see if there was any projects that needed to be done at camp, and there was,  so he came. :)

While kids were registering and settling in, the other Shawn came up to us and asked if we knew of anywhere he could get a watch, because he didn't have one with him, but keeping track of the time was a big part of his job.

So Far, So Great!



This song is probably the kid's favorite at School's Out.
It was one of the songs I taught them on my first week, with motions too - and the next day two of the girls were trying to sing it and asked me to help them with the words. That was so neat!
