She tried on six or seven dresses, but no luck. She found some cute PJ'S, but the dresses all lacked something, namely comfort, sleeves or fit. In the end we went to Marshalls and found a nice one (not pictured.)
|This one was not bright enough and tended to cling.|
|School girl cute but the waistband was too tight and the scarf didn't match.|
|Polyester Hot ... as in too warm.|
|This one was darling, but there is some rule about having your arms covered. I think I should go back and get this one so she can have it for another occassion. If we could have found a nice white cover-up then it would have made it to the pictures.|
But tommorrow is good old-fashioned picture day and we will not see the pictures for a long time. We will have to wait days (maybe weeks) until the school sends home the big envelope containing the second grade images of Kenzie alone and with her class.
These are photographs that go down in history!
I like that we will be surprized. We paid for the pictures weeks ago and there are no refunds, maybe retakes (if you insist.)
For the most part you get what you get.
Some of the grammar school pictures of my children are still (decades later) hanging in my hall. It doesn't matter what they wore or how they were smiling or what their hair looked like. As long as their eyes were opened, the pictures turned out perfect, because they are what they are and it is what it is and that is.... school pictures.
It should be renamed School Picture Perfect Day!
