School Shots..

This year is a little out of the ordinary for us.  But, honestly, we don't mind it one bit.  In TN, they went back to school the beginning of August, so we started our (home) school then too.

The other day, I realized we never took our 1st day of school pictures.  (bad mommy).  It just so happened that, this day Benji wanted his picture taken outside, "in the shade".  So I dragged the other 3 kids outside and snapped away.  I then realized the girl's hair wasn't combed was "combed" by themselves, and they were wearing their clearanced swim shirts.  I debated on making them change and comb their hair, but this is how they are most days, so... :)  Although they were in a somewhat cooperative mood, so I could have gotten some cute group shots.

(check out John..)
Benji- 1st grade
Carolyn - Kindergarten/1st grade (she's suppose to be in K, but she'd rather follow along with Benji)
Katie- PreK
John - this lil bugger is learning more than I realize.  He can identify all of his ABC's.  You point, he'll tell you which one it is!
The next few weeks are shaping up to be busy ones.  Busy weeks that we are looking forward too!  Aside from a few scheduled posts, I'll likely be absence from the blogging scene for awhile.

Benji looks like he has grown taller since we saw him.

How exciting. And I agree, I really don't dress mine up for school pics either as I want to remember them they way they were! Love the cowboy hat though! Hope you have a great school year. We started here in the beginning of Aug as well.

Funny! John's face is great! Wonder what he was thinking of...maybe the camera in his face? :) The girls' hair looked pretty good! Maybe they want to come see me and do mine ;)

Love that 1st picture of them... their expressions are adorable... swim tops, fancy hair and all. Imagine you might have been busier than the rest of us on the 1st day of school (being you are teacher plus mom) which MAY explain the delayed picture : )

What fun! I always love "real" pictures more than school posed pictures. Love that their personalities are captured. Great job teacher/mom/phototgrapher/everything else
