I thought it might be the lack of computer that held him back, but no, it was that he'd miss the first real day of school....and Darkmirror actually LIKES school now! He's taking the fancy updated version of shop class - "production technology" and gets to use power tools! He plans on making a mini spray booth and display boxes for his minis.
We ceremoniously burned the last marshmallow for him. He looked at the 200 pics I took and declared this one the best. This is how my night vision setting startles small animals into staying still for pictures. I wish I'd figured it out two nights earlier!
