A couple of weeks ago it was school photo day and today the boys came home with the proofs for us to choose which we want to order.
Let me apologise now for the quality of the following photos, as they are only scans of the little proofs!
I don't usually buy the individual photos of each of the boys, for the simple reason that it would just work out too expensive.
Calum's are both very good this year though. I love his new glasses that he chose about a month ago.
If I were choosing one of these I think it would be (a)
I will probably get David's individual photo as it is his first year at school, and I bought James and Calum's first ones too.
Normally they get sent home with two, maybe three, slightly different proofs each for you to choose from but David was given ten!!!!!
Perhaps it's just because they weren't sure which captured that mischievous little smile the best!
I'm veering towards (a) again here, although I'm swithering betweent that and (b)
The photo I always choose is the one of all of them, and I know which I am going to pick no problem here, it's (b)
Alasdair, being his usual shy self, took fright when I sat him on James' knee and the photographer lady started speaking to him!
Please also note in the photo above how neat James' tie is, as this was taken first thing in the morning.
Compare that tie to the photo below.
Obviously the school photograph the younger children first, in the hope that perhaps the older ones can remain neater for longer.
Thankfully, I think a schoolboy is more authentic with a squinty tie and his shirt half hanging out!
