Yesterday was school picture day for the kids.
Anyone else remember having your picture taken multiple times in one school year?
Not me. I remember one official day, where everyone wore their very best duds. And the picture people handed out combs to everyone in line.
I remember really needing one.
Truthfully, other than the confusion it brings when trying to determine which pictures were taken during what school year, I actually kinda like the twice a year thing. It gives my kids one more chance to actually look normal in a school picture.
Which a few of them seem to have a hard time doing.
This time, I asked the girls what they wanted to wear for their pictures, since I had no exciting options in mind. And, since it’s spring pictures but they can’t wear spring clothes for at least another month, I figured they might have some brilliant solution.
And they actually did. They asked to wear their Chinese silks.
And I think their sweet smiles make up for my ineptness.
And my propensity for running late.
