First Day of School...sort of

Every year, on the first day of school, amid all the hustle and bustle, I make sure to get a picture of the kids standing in just about the same spot in the driveway, usually with the dog.

It didn't work out this year.

Day 1 -- Just plain forgot about the picture. Hey, it was the first day of High School. I wasn't myself.

Day 2-- Remembered, but couldn't find the camera for anything.

Day 3-- The Boy says, "This is the same shirt I wore on the first day of 8th grade. You can't do it today!"

Day 4-- The Girl says, "Why don't you just wait until tomorrow when we both look really good."

So here it is, the fifth day of school. We finally got the First Day of School picture .

It's picture day at school too, which is why they look so sharp.
Getting the camera ready, I accidentally took a picture of the top of my head and got the flash right in the eye, which is how I got these big smiles. Nothing like a little slapstick first thing in the morning.
