Today is Rachel's school picture day. I had forgotten what a big deal this is for girls. It's almost as dramatic as picking the First Day of School Outfit.
Somehow I managed to convince Rachel to let me put her hair in a ponytail this morning after much debate about what to do with it. Her hair is thick and heavy like mine, so blowing it dry and straightening it at 6 a.m. was not high on my list of things I wanted to do.
I think she looks like such a doll when she pulls her hair away from her face. What a cutie.
So I, of course, had to take her picture before she left.
She, of course, got all goofy like she does every time the camera comes out.
Sam's picture day was a couple of weeks ago. It was as drama-free as a day can be for Sam. All boy, that one.
In fact, he was pretty unimpressed with Rachel's excitement this morning. I took a picture of him, too, but he was hiding behind his hoodie and growling at me so I cut him some slack and put the camera away. I can sympathize. I'm not much of a morning person, either.
