I am a planner. I like to take care of tasks early and anticipate things that might get in my way. So when it came time for back to school pictures, I made adjustments for the 60% chance of rain on the first day of school. On Sunday, I ironed my kids clothes, fed them dinner early, and set out to a field to take pictures of them with their new backpacks and school clothes on the day before school started.
I started with Sam and snapped the 5-10 pictures that I had promised him I would keep it to and then it happened.
The sky opened up and a random cloud unloaded buckets of rain right on top of us!
We were drenched!!! Our new back to school clothes were soaked. My camera was soaked. Their new backpacks were soaked and we were laughing so hard that we didn't care.
It was not at all what I planned for back to school pictures when I was trying to get ahead of the game, but it was memorable nonetheless.
