I adore this girl. Ruby is the daughter of my friend and former co-worker at the U of M, Lisa. I met them, along with Liz and Vivian, for coffee at Jerabek's New Bohemian in St. Paul, MN.
Ruby and I sat our table by ourselves for several minutes while Lisa and Liz got their coffees. Some kids are hard for me to talk to, but not Ruby. She is the most conversational kid I know. When I asked her if she was done with school for the year, she muttered, "I wish" as sarcastically as an 18 year-old, and then when on to She has 4 days left of fourth grade and told me they have two fun days scheduled so far: "Fit and Fun Day" which involves lots of fun activities like tug of war and "DEAR" (Drop Everything and Read) in which they get to go outside with beach towels and sunglasses and read. She is going to wear that stylin' pair of shades in this picture for that day. This is one of many photos I took of Ruby because she was a good sport in front of the camera. I told her I'd pretend to be a photographer and she could pretend to be a model. Except, I'm the only one pretending in that scenario!
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
