School Picture Day!

This week's topic for the Not-Back-to-School Blog Hop is School Pictures.

I have to admit, I've never really done this in the past, but I needed pictures for our homeschool ID cards (you can make your own for free here). So I figured why not. AND to remind myself that I needed to take the pictures during our outside time, I added it to my, and the big girls' schedules. The girls got SOO excited about it LOL.  Somehow they inherited a "girly" gene that skipped me :)  Our neighbors E, and sometimes J, join us for school 4 days a week, so they're included in these pictures too.

So, here's what we ended up with:

Lexie Age 10
Ashlyn Age 10
Little Bit Age 4
E Age 6

J Age 3

We don't "do grades" per se, and to further complicate things, since J's so little, but hates to be left out, we kind of let him join in when he wants. Little Bit and E do some things together, but others separately . . . but here are our sort-of age groups. J wasn't here when we took most of the pictures, so I took his id card picture when he was here for snack. Little Bit saw me taking the picture and joined in, but E wasn't outside yet, so I didn't end up getting a picture of the 3 littles together (or the 2 brothers together, for that matter). 

Big Kids

Middle Kids

Little Kids (being silly)

And now some other pictures we took while we had the cameras out:

Three Sisters

When I first called Ashlyn to come stand by the tree for a picture, THIS is how she stood, nothing dramatic about her LOL.


Silly Face

When I was done taking pictures, the girls asked for my camera to take some of their own. THEY came up with the standing by the tree poses, which turned out quite nicely, I think :)

Nice pictures... they will like to remember them. I don't take pictures often, either... but the times I did, the girls look back and laugh at how different they looked.
