Picture Day at School!
Last week, Trey and Carrington's school very kindly sent out a reminder email that school pictures were to take place on Tuesday, since the weather for the rest of the week was looking pretty rainy. Or at least that's what I read.... so, on Tuesday morning, I dressed my kiddos up super cute and sent them off to school! I even gave permission for the school to attempt taking their picture together (if Trey was so inclined- although I'm not holding my breath on that one!). On a side note- I have been practicing with Trey in the fine art of holding his baby sister. I was running late that afternoon when I picked them up, so I didn't get a chance to ask how pictures went, but I assumed that all went smoothly and went on with the day! Sure enough, Wed. morning was cold and raining, and I woke up that morning and dressed Trey in Carrington in, what I consider to be, rainy day weather. Just to give you an idea of what this might be, I'll give you a quick mental picture: Trey was wearing blue camo pants and a long sleeve t-shirt that clearly states "LOCK UP YOUR DAUGHTERS". Carrington had on navy blue leggings and a yellow and white striped hoody (although I did put a cute little yellow headband on her bald head). Both of these outfits are cute, but definitely not what I would dress them in for pictures. Luckily, in my mind, pictures had been taken the day before, right!?!?! That afternoon, since I wasn't rushing, I lingered and talked to their teachers. Miss Amy (Carrington's teacher), told me that everyone thought Carrington looked adorable in her yellow outfit and they even used a cute yellow blanket in her pictures- um... what? Needless to say, I'm pretty sure the school pictures will not be favorites of mine. I did snap a few pics of the kids the day before in the nicer clothes- and in my mind, I will take comfort in knowing that I at least attempted a cute picture day, even if I read the email wrong and got the days mixed up :(.
