Say Cheese! Not Back to School Photos

It is back to (home)school week at the Spell household. Darcy of 3 Boybarians has been hosting a Not-Back-to-School Blog Hop since Aug. 3. I had every intention of entering the past 2 weeks, but just wasn't organized enough to get a post done (hey we were still enjoying our summer! I wasn't thinking "school" yet) :) So this week's theme was something I felt I could handle---taking first day of school photos of my kids.

Oh oldest daughter is such a joy and has picture posing down pat. She sat down and we were done with her shoot in minutes.

My son is in a not-smiling phase. I told him he couldn't leave the chair unless he let me take a good picture of him. We were out there awhile. I like the end result though!

Middle daughter always squints. I don't know what's up with that. Today she kept rolling her tongue between the missing teeth spaces in her mouth.

Two-year old DD has a mind of her own. I have not been able to take any good pictures of her for a couple of months. She refuses to look at the camera. I put my camera on continuous shooting, had my older daughter stand behind me and bribe her with a sucker. It worked! I love this photo of her.

And the baby. We weren't really planning on taking her picture today. She's still in her p.j.'s and her hair is stiff due to the fruit juice from breakfast. But she sure did turn on the cheese! Love her goofy expression.

You have beautiful children...and a very cool-lookin' blog, I might add! =)

Also, wanted to let you know that my chalkboard is actually just painted on my dining room wall...cheaper and more practical than an actual board. I love it! (Thanks for stopping by my blog!)

Oh gracious! Look at all those beautiful girls. Your son's wife is so going to appreciate all the girl training he gets while growing up. My hubby has 4 sisters (no brothers) and he is the best!

Thanks for joining in at the NBTS Blog Hop!

We aren't ready to start school yet, either. I wait until all of their public school friends go to school so I don't have to hear the woes of how unfair it might be to have ONE less day of summer vacation!

LOVE the pictures!
