ninth day of school photos

12:00 AM

Normally Moms take first day of school photos. Well, apparently this Mom doesn't. On our first day of school, my two little entrepreneurs decided to start a little business. They baked snickerdoodles and shortbread cookies to sell at University Village. In the moment when the light was just right, I couldn't bear to pull them away from their little business.

Day two was our bi-monthly community braai so it was forgotten. Days three through five, the forecast was rain. And day six? Well, that was our thirteenth anniversary, so Jeremy and I spent the afternoon and evening just the two of us. Then there was more rain. Yada. Yada. Yada. Finally the day came. The sky was beautiful so we got those photos. I knew I had to incorporate the classic Africa tree in my photo. I love those acacia trees!

And with their teacher. :) The photo of Emma G and I is Joshua's "artistic" shot. Not sure why she looks so bored.
