My kids FINALLY started school today. Hallelujah! I love my kids. I really do. But I also love freedom and having a few hours a day to get everything I need to get done done. Those last couple of weeks about did me in.
I wasn’t going to do back to school pictures this year. Things were hectic. My husband and I scheduled a vacation the last few days of summer and we didn’t get home until late the night before school started. At the last minute I decided I would regret not doing them so we threw the kids in their first day of school clothes and headed over to Brayden’s school when I should have been packing for our trip.
I have my camera out on the first day of school and get some pictures, but by getting the shots I really want out of the way before the big day I find there is less pressure. I can be more present and my kids aren’t annoyed with me wanting pictures. It takes pressure off of all of us.
And here is one from today. I hope to get a shot of them walking across this same crosswalk until they graduate… that is if they will cooperate with me 🙂
