Wordless Wednesday: School Pics


They take pictures twice a year in the schools here. I wasn't going to buy Spring pics, and so I sent my youngest to school in just regular clothes.  This came back and I was so happy, I ended up buying some anyway, lol. They're sneaky smart in the Spring and just send the pics home...telling you to return what you don't want to buy.

Doesn't he look so grown up? WHERE OH WHERE is the time going?????
That's what I want to know.

  1. He looks relaxed and natural - must've been the regular clothes.
    And that is sneaky to just send home the photos.

  3. I love your new look. Blue is a very nice color.

    He is very photogenic by the way.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    1. Thanks, Sandee. Little man picked it out. I gave him free reign on the templates, he loved seeing the changes...easy way to make him happy and help him be involved too, w/something mom likes to do (the blog). :)

  4. I like your new background, Rosie:)

    Wow. I'm shocked at how far school pics have come (in general). I think you and I are of an age, so you know that our school pics were head shots against that ole blue background. B-o-r-i-n-g. Pics are now refreshing and exciting and don't even look like "school pictures." BTW, your son is growing up and is just adorable in this shot. He's becoming a handsome young man!

    1. Thanks for both of the compliments. And yep, not a one of my school pics is worth mentioning today. Some were downright horrid, and my mom bought them anyway. ;)

  5. I totally didn't buy the spring pics, but instead I scanned the 8 x 10 in and printed off my own printer. I thank my neighbor for giving me that idea. Love your little guy's pic though and could see why you bought it ;)

  6. It always makes me mad when they send the pictures already printed. I think about all the waste! They cost a fortune, so I don't buy them, because by the time I bought for 3 boys, I'd spend half our grocery budget for the week.

  7. His picture is SUPER cute though :-) I can see why you'd break down ;-)

  8. Beautiful picture Rosey. Your young man is so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  9. He looks very smart a proper little model heheh!

    Have a modeltastic week :-)

  10. Ah. The old "just send them back" tactic. I've bought many a school picture package because of that!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would have bought those pictures, too. He looks so handsome!

    ReplyDelete
  12. How neat that they take pictures twice. I have never heard of that before. His pictures came out GREAT. He is getting so big.

    ReplyDelete
  13. He is very handsome. The 2 years my son was in public school before we started homeschooling I always bought the pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love this! Such a handsome boy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. No need to dress him up, he looks great! The background and his clothes work perfectly together.

    ReplyDelete
  16. He is such a little cutie! And he is so much bigger than when I first started reading your blog. I can't believe he looks so grown up.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This is a fantastic school pictures! Apparently, school pictures are not what they used to be LOL

    ReplyDelete
  18. hahaha your school sounds just like my kids. They do the same thing but I think that they did an amazing job with those photos, how could you not resist buying a few :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Why did they ever start doing school pics twice a year? I think that once is enough. But this is such a cute picture.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I agree that once is enough, but when I taught school they did photos twice a year to show how the students had grown over the year.

  20. I'm confused by the two-a-year school photos, but this one turned out great. I can see why you wouldn't want to send it back!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well those old clothes look great with the picture. He looks like he is going to get up and head into the woods at any time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. He looks gorgeous. Sneaky of the school to just send them home. I suspect they spend a lot of time chasing up the missing money though...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Outside pictures? How can you resist buying some of those. He does look so grown up!

    1. These school pictures really do make them look grown up. I love looking at them every year.

  24. Oh my goodness Rosie, he is so cute and grown up ♡ ...

    I wonder that about Valentina, she will be 12 in a little over a week and starting grade 7 in the Fall... time sure flies...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Twice a year here also. And expensive! I don't remember them costing this much before!

    ReplyDelete
  26. He is handsome and they are sneaky - who wants their kids photos trashed. You will enjoy in years to come...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those photo shops are amazing! Of course you should buy them! You will never forgive yourself if you don't.

    ReplyDelete
  28. So handsome! I love the background. I would for sure buy some up, for sure! I can't say no to photos of my kids no matter what they look like! So you can imagine how many photos I have!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I really like being able to see the pictures before I decide to buy them. It's hard to tell the kiddos that you don't want a zillion 8 x 10's of them though! Your sweet boy's photos turned out just perfect so I'm sure you'll need all of the copies.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Such a handsome young man; I'd have bought dozens!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am actually upset. My son was out on the picture day and I was waiting for the re-take day. NSL. No pictures for me

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yes they are sneaky, but he looks adorable. You will be glad you have these later down the road!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi Rosey, what a lovely school photo of you son!

    ReplyDelete
  34. He sure looks comfortable taking that pic, had to be the normal clothes, no getting dressed up haha and time sure does fly

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is a great photo! I never buy school pics...but they do make it hard when they send them home!

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a great photo and an adorable little guy. I would not be able to resist buying them.

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a cute little sweetheart! I appreciate that you can view the photos before you buy them but the twice a year thing is a bit much.

    ReplyDelete
  38. They take school pictures twice a year here too. I usually let the kids pick their own outfits for the second picture,

    ReplyDelete
  39. Now that is one fine looking young man, and I bet well behaved too. Now I have this granddaughter about his age, and very pretty and smart too... we could like introduce them..... ~HEHEHE~ Whatcha think?

    ReplyDelete
  40. So handsome. My daughter's school does photos twice a year in fall & spring. I always see such changes in my daughter - she's growing up quick.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Such a cutie! I bet he is a lot of fun and loving kid. It seems like the norm are photos 2 times a school year, now. It is amazing at how fast they grow up.

    ReplyDelete
  42. what a great picture!! he is so cute! haha, that is pretty sneaky - sending them home with them, tempting you to buy! definitely worth it! love the picture!
    i hope your may is off to a great start, rosey! xoxox

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your son is adorable! I love the background, too. Whoever the photographer was did a FAR better job than any of the ones that were hired to do my school photos as a kid. The school either had a great budget, or got really lucky! Lovely thing for him to have to look back on one day.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your son is adorable! I've never heard of a school doing pictures twice a year - when I was in school we never did that!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Awwww... he is so cute! The pictures look like they turned out so good!

    ReplyDelete
  46. He's a handsome young man and he looks great in the photo. I can see why you kept it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. That's a handsome young man you have there!

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is a great photo and they turned out great. This reminds me that I need to get some new family photos.

    ReplyDelete
  49. great picture - what a handsome young man!
    and yes, that is very sneaky -- but, I guess it ended well in this case.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Awesome picture of your son. They do a great job. If my son's came out that way, I would have bought some too. Ironically, Ryan was making the goofiest face in his spring photo and Grant actually wrote back to the photography company and complained that they didn't bother to do a retake. It was THAT bad! What a great idea for a fun post - the other side of the coin so to speak..... he he he

    ReplyDelete
  51. wow what a handsome young man. they grow so fast it seems.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Your son is so cute! His pictures turned out great and I love the new blog look!

    ReplyDelete
  53. What a great picture of your son. He is so handsome. I always gave in and bought pics when they sent them home, too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I can see why you ended up buying it, I would have done the same thing. He looks adorable and I have to admit that they did a good job with the simple yet very nice set-up.

    And yes, he does look very grown-up, time does fly...

    ReplyDelete
  55. What an adorable picture! Mine are too young still but I can't wait :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Look at him! He's looking so grown up! I love the backdrop. Usually they are just a solid color.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Gosh!
    They know how to make parent's heart melt...sob sob.
    I am sure you went ahead and bought it...call it emotional blackmailing but, sure worth all the $$$ :)

    Always a pleasure to have you on board, Rosey
    xoxo

  58. What a lovely picture of your son. I love school pictures and I keep them preciously

    ReplyDelete
  59. He looks so big and handsome! Awesome school pics

    ReplyDelete
  60. That really is a good photo! Much better than what Allison has brought home in the past! We never buy them because they just look so bad!

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a great photo! Your son is one handsome little dude!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Time goes so fast! I love school pictures and it will be one thing I miss now that my kids are no longer going to public school. Enjoy your handsome little one!

    ReplyDelete
  63. This is a great photo. Our school does the same thing and sends home all the photos. It is to hard to resist buying them when they are in your hand.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Same here! I thought it was a makeup picture day. Though I didn't buy the ones from earlier in the school year. So yeah some big packet came home. Christopher had on a lego shirt and jeans and his orange and green sneakers by Lebron James. So he said he thought we should buy them so that we could have a memory of his sneakers. I bought one sheet, the one where it's a three picture collage.

    Little man looks handsome. I guess it really is more natural if they aren't dressed up. I can see how you were suckered to buy. ;-)

    1. Gotta commemorate cool sneaks. ;) I only bought one sheet too, the eight wallets. :)

  65. Very handsome young man you have there! Our four year old finally started cooperating for pictures - before this year, he'd refuse to sit for them.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I take so many photos, I really don't want to like the spring ones. Isn't once a year enough???? But, it's hard to say no! He's a cutie. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. He's so handsome! I bet you are one proud mama!

    ReplyDelete
  68. He looks so good! It came out great! My youngest finally had a good school picture this year.
