School Pictures and SATS

Austin's 3rd grade picture:
He gets so nervous while taking school pictures. I mean come on I take a million pictures of my kids a day. The camera should be second nature to them. For some reason he stiffens up and does these weird smiles :). Also, he thought that the top button of his shirt should be buttoned he thinks it makes him look more sophisticated...LOL



And Faith's 1st grade picture complete with the Paris(which she has no idea who Paris is LOL) head tilt and all..She's a natural..haha!

Look how much they have changed...
big 4th grader
This year he smiled and showed his teeth braces and all:)




2nd grader...
got into mom's closet and wore my belt:) she got to wear dangle earings (this is big) she even rolled her own hair with hot rollers that day....

The both look like they have to go pee really bad......so no grandma's I didn't order you any sorry:(
Don't ask my why the photographer had them place their hands in their lap like that then make that face like they gotta go really bad.....oh, well!
Or maybe it was the fact that their pictures were taken the week of SAT testing???Maybe that's why they looked so stressed out and nervous???


Speaking of SAT's I just got them back and I have one word HALLELUJAH!

WOW!!!! They did great. Good job teaching them. When I say the word tests, my son litterally has a panic attack. I'm thankful over here in MI we don't have to do tests.
