This was a big week for Jillian. She got her braces! She has been wearing a retainer to pull some of her molars back but it wasn't working all that well. So, this week she had two teeth pulled (ouch) and braces put on.
She wasn't really THAT pale after getting her braces. It was just the crummy lighting in our backyard at the time.
And as promised...here are a few back-to-school photos. These were taken after school and not on the actual first day.
It was pouring rain the first three days of school, which makes it pretty impossible to take outdoor photos. :)
Certain kids were um...not cooperative...aka: CRYING about getting a photo, so first shot was of their shoes. Not everyone needed new shoes, but most of them did.
Tears gone...all the little kids want a photo with big sister.
Time for shots of everyone's backpacks.
Some passed the time by lying on the ground, but at least they were willing to smile for mom.
These two like having photos taken together. :)
Close-up shoe shots.
Then when you are all done with the individual shots, you can go to www.Picnik.com and use their FREE collages to make a little memento of their first day of school.
Easy, peasy. I made this in a few minutes. Print it out and voila...stick in the baby book!
Picnik also has lots of additional ways to edit photos and make collages when you purchase their $25 a year subscription. Well worth the money if you want to do a little extra with your photos. I don't work for them--I just enjoy their product. :)
