Photo Tag

I was tagged by blogging friend Sarah C. for this photo tag.

The tag how-to...
  1. Go to the photos folder on your computer.
  2. Go to the seventh folder of photos.
  3. Go to the seventh photo.
  4. Put the seventh photo on your blog along with a description.
  5. Invite seven friends to join.
Like Sarah, I'm also a little obsessed with photo organization :-) so it took me a couple of tries on step #3! It's kind of funny that the tag led me to this particular set of photos.

This is a photo of my daughter at our District History Day competition back in 2006. It just so happens that this year's competition takes place this very week, and for the first time, my daughter will be helping out as a judge.

If you're not familiar with National History Day, you can read about it here. I've been a judge for perhaps eight years now. It's one of the most interesting and educational activities I've been involved with, and I always enjoy talking with students about their projects.

The photo above shows my daughter's 8th grade exhibit which focused on Olympia Brown, a lesser known activist for women's suffrage and religious freedom. She created the exhibit to look like picket signs, and each one was anchored in a paint can filled with sand. (We didn't realize how heavy sand is until we had to carry three paint cans full of it through our very large state historical building!)

I'm tagging Benita, Heather in MN, Heather (from Heather's Corner), Katie (yes, you, Katie!), Cheri, Fonda, and anyone else who would like to play along! If you do it, let us know!

Hmmm. Could be tricky. I've been pretty slow on the pictures this year! What do I do if there isn't a 7th photo in the 7th folder?? If it's blank then you'll know! Thanks for the tag! Gives me something blog about this week!

Fun tag! I'll be sure to play this evening when I'm at home with my own computer. :)

I like the picket sign presentation. Funny how something tiny like sand can be so heavy when there is a lot of it.

What a neat pic and story! And I must say I'm not surprised you have the obsessed photo organization too - think it comes from the same place as our love of straight lines? ;) Thanks for playing!

What if it's you're nakey in the picture on your 7th 7th whatever folder? Do you still have to post it, or can you go for picture number 8? I'm KIDDING!!!!!! TOTALLY, totally kidding!!!!!!! All my nakey pictures are in the 3rd and 12th folders...KIDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-) :-0 :-)

How neat on the picket signs!!!! And really, good idea for a tag, despite my misgivings. :-)

I played along! The seventh folder was the year 2000, so you get a trip down memory lane over at my blog, hehe

Hi Janet. I played along too. I went with 7th folder in 2009! But Cheri that's a good idea, go back to the real archives!
