One of the things about homeschooling is that we (oh, no!) don't have regular, horribly-posed, bad-backgrounded pictures to display on our walls. Still, I wanted to start regularly documenting our kids' growth through school. Our friend Israel, as I may have mentioned a time or five hundred, is an exceptional photographer, and really loves our kids. So I asked him to do a "school pictures photo shoot" for us before he goes away to college next weekend. :( We met him up at the north end of Roanoke Island, with the kiddos dressed up and armed with extra outfits. I think we got some great shots! (I took a few of them, too, but his are better.)
Israel helping Abbie figure out where to put her hands
My pretty girlys.
I snapped this when I PROBABLY should have been telling her to get the heck away from the edge.
She had to be jollied out of a "mood" to pose in her gymnastics outfit. I'm pretty sure I had just made a poot joke right before this. Gets 'em every time.
How'd my kid get so BIG?
Israel had her holding an invisible bat because I couldn't find the real one. (Bad mommy!)
Not too into T-ball, my boy.
She won't smile with her toothlessness!
All three being cheesy (can you tell it was bright? Poor Micah.).
She looks like my sister Melody to me.
I love this guy.
Cap and gown (for PRE-SCHOOL. Good grief.)
More of the poot jokes, I'm sure.
