Getting Warmed Up
家族撮影の軽い準備

We did a silly family photoshoot today. We had planned to do it a month or so ago for our Christmas cards, but to my shame I was just too lazy to do cards this year. So to sort of make up for not having sent Christmas or New Year's cards, we did this shoot and are posting these photos.

今年喪中年賀状を送らないので、そのかわりに面白家族写真を撮りました。 文枝はまだ 12才の息子より背が高いけれども、そろそろ息子に負けそうです。

Fumie is still taller than 12-year-old Anthony, but that won't last long, and Anthony will be taller by the time next year's photoshoot rolls around.

ギリギリです

At 5′ 3½″, Fumie still has two inches on Anthony (he's 5′ 1½″, and FWIW, I'm 6′ 3½″), but Fumie has quite the trick up her sleeve...

文枝はバレエのポワントの様に立ってますが、靴は履いていないです。親指だけで立ってるみたいです。

Fumie is standing directly on the edge of her toes (the big toe of each foot), as if she's wearing ballet pointe shoes, but she's in just stockings. I can't fathom that kind of strength (and my toes hurt just thinking about it), but this is what ballet dancers do.


One comment so far...

Wow! My feet hurt just looking at that. How long did she have to hold that pose? Was someone else taking the photos? What a precious picture.
You’re going to have to put a rock on Anthony’s head if you want to keep him your little boy. I didn’t do that to my sons, or daughter, and look what happened? When they’re around I feel like I’m standing in a hole. 😀
