early in october brody's school took pictures and i was so excited to see how they turned out! we got the digital proof and it was not. good. his glasses were falling down and they definitely took the picture before he smiled. it totally made him look like an old man, think like carl fredrickson in up. naturally i elected the retake, we practiced a bit the morning of, and he came home with this:
whew! that's all brody!
in november the twins had picture day at their preschool, which seems silly, but i love it! i was definitely nervous to send them off, who knows how this would go! at the end of the day my carpool buddy dropped off the boys and said "one of the twins' teacher said not to expect a great picture." my apprehension mounted. finally they got their pictures back. i opened crew's first, and started laughing at this:
such a tough guy- never wants to crack! i've said it from the beginning, a smile from crew must be earned! he doesn't normally going around smiling all whilly nilly! his teacher apologized for his picture and explain that the photographer took a good 20 minutes getting crew to smile and apparently she "did everything short of cartwheels to get that picture" she continued, "at least he looks pleasant right?" hilarious, and oh, so very crew.
i nervously opened kade's envelope and saw this:
hooray!! talk about stepping up! kade's been so shy since starting preschool without crew and i totally thought he'd be too timid to smile, but it's great!!
I'm happy with how all three pictures turned out, but of course something as mundane as school pictures had to have a little chaos thrown in! hooray until next year!
