Someday I will accept that getting my kids to look at the camera at the same time and smile is impossible.
Today is not that day.
I tried. I really did.
I had this perfect first day of school picture in my head. All the kids were in it when I imagined it, but Maggie sprinted to the car and wanted nothing to do with my picture taking. So I convinced these two to pause on their rush to get to the car. Kind of.
Okay can you both look at the camera.
Okay good. Real smiles! Happy smiles! We're going to school!
Over here! Look at the camera! Could you stand a tiny bit closer to each other? Maybe hold hands?
Or maybe not.
Seriously guys. Just one picture.
Not bad. But could you maybe scoot a little bit closer?
They had great first day and can't wait for tomorrow.
And the only person who cried about dropping these two off?
If you guessed James you would be correct.
Two more years buddy. Two more years.
