It crosses my mind that I should take annual pictures of my children such as back to school pictures. Then I remind myself of two things: 1 – I take pictures every Easter that can serve as my “wow, look how much they have grown this year” pictures; 2- We school year round and the schedule depends on life. Sometimes we take a month off; sometimes a week. A official date for the beginning of each school year is a bit hazy.
However, I was inspired by my friend, Rachel, and decided that today we would take a few school photos. We happen to have a playground near our home which was an excellent back drop for our “school photos”. I instructed the kiddos to brush their hair and grab some shoes while I whipped up a few “signs”.
So here we go…..first up is Rebekah Grace. She was not impressed with school pictures. Shocking, yes? (Just click on the pics to enlarge.)
Mary Elizabeth – She did not see the point in taking yearly school pictures. Love her to pieces!
Benjamin Caleb – Notice the poison ivy on his face? Day 2 of steroids – much improvement!
Lydia Ruth – More than delighted to have a photo session!
Hannah Joy – Who cares about pictures? We are going to the park!
Sarah Michal – Loves anything to do with school!
Samuel Isaac – Superman of the Park
Little Miss Martha Ann – Who really wanted to be napping.
A great way to spend the morning! I think we might try a planned photo session again soon. Maybe when the beautiful colors of fall can be our backdrop.
