School Pictures

I have my kids’ school pictures up on the wall in the entryway. I change them out every year when they get new ones, sometimes twice a year if they get fall and spring pictures done. I save the old pictures in a special album.

I really like doing this.The only problem with this system comes in when the kids get older and start to dislike how their pictures look. Not that there’s anything wrong with their pictures; it’s just that they are teenagers and they are getting picky.

My oldest daughter (ET) complained about her picture every year for about five years, but now that we’ve got her senior picture up this year she can stop.

It’s the last one, and it’s beautiful.

But her sister GG, the next oldest at 15, is still complaining about her high school freshman photo, which has graced our wall for the last several months.

Now she has taken to silent protest.

Putin

Yes, that is the face of Russian president Vladimir Putin, taped over her own face.

You’ve got to give her points for creativity.
