Every year, the kids’ school throws a carnival fundraiser, which is entirely powered by the teachers and parent volunteers. This year, Becky contributed an entire photography project: she set up an individual portrait of each and every student, with comedy props and funny faces. She’s calling it the “CLASS Clowns.”
Will and I went early to help set up. Here’s the silent-auction room, with Becky’s photography project all set up:
