Say "cheese!"

Today is back to school day for my two kids. So, this morning, and for the rest of the school year, I get up early, start the coffee, and start the breakfast going. In honor of the first day, I make pancakes with strawberries and bananas, homemade whipped cream topped with real maple syrup. Got to get those boys a good breakfast, so they can be in top form for their first day of school! 

Didn't these kids have a good breakfast?
All is going well, timing is good, and within a half hour, they are out the door. It's a whirlwind! Then, I remember the camera. The first day of school picture is a must, plus, my oldest is a senior this year. His last first day of school pic to be taken by me. Grabbing the camera, I run after them, and convince them to get out of the car, and stand next to each other. Quickly, they want to get going, so I hurry, fumbling with the lense cap, now camera ready. Say "cheese!". The camera goes black. Out of battery. Are you kidding me? ARGGHHH!!! They hop in the car, and off they go. "Have a good day!" I call after them.
Damn camera.

Their mom had her camera battery charged!

Do you think I can get an after school picture once the battery is charged? I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of  heart broken right now...


  1. Aww, Care!! Maybe an first day AFTER school photo will work! I hope so!! Love n' hugs!!

  2. ha! of course that never happened either. oh well, maybe i'll get a 3 weeks later back to school pic.
