Our school pictures are in! When we first started homeschooling, I thought this was one school activity that we would have to forego, especially since I’m no good with the camera. Thankfully, our church has a large enough group of homeschoolers that an organized school picture day is well worth it! My kids got individual shots as well as the big group photo.
What I love about our photo sessions is that the photographer, who also happens to be our good friend, is great with the kids, and she also takes a few shots that we can pick from. Gone are the days when you have only one chance to make an impression with that camera!
So, I thought, just for fun, I would take a stroll down my School Picture Memory Lane, and showcase some of my most memorable school photos.
I started out in a private school, where school pictures were just large group photos, and since we wore uniforms, I didn’t have to stress about what to wear. When I transferred to a public school, I didn’t think about dressing up for school pictures. So, while all the girls had their pretty dresses on, I came to school in my E.T. shirt!
My mom would always cut my hair, but this particular year, I needed a change. So, I grabbed some scissors and decided to cut myself some stylish bangs. How hard could it be? Little did I know.
It’s out in the open. I had the big hair. It takes skill to get it teased up that high. Watch out!
Ok, I just put myself out there. Now, it’s your turn! You knew this was coming.
If you accept the challenge, share one or more of your memorable school photos. Post it on your blog (or social media, if you don’t have a blog). Share a story about it … or not. Perhaps, the photo will speak for itself!
Add your link in the comments. C’mon! Don’t leave me hanging!
