We’re not actually starting school until September, but we wanted to go ahead and take our school pictures for this year now. 🙂
This upcoming year, we’ll be teaching 5th grade, 2nd grade, 1st grade, and tot school, so I’m lesson planning like a mad woman….lol. In the meantime, we wanted to get some pics of our kids to compare to last year’s school photos.

Everyone is psyched about moving up a grade, even little Piglet. 🙂
Tigger is going into fifth grade this year. Her favorite subject is science. Her least favorite subject is math. I keep telling her that you need math to learn science. She remains unconvinced.
Pooh is going into second grade. His favorite subject is history. His least favorite subject is also math. Needless to say, I’ve been pinning lots of teaching ideas to make math fun this year.
Roo is going into first grade. He is excited about anything having to do with building, so he’s probably going to be my child who’s most excited about STEM learning this year.
Piglet is only two, so she’s continuing with tot school this fall. After she turns 3 in December, though, we’ll be beginning light preschool. She’s good on ABCs, colors, and counting to 10, but I want to encourage her to keep learning now instead of waiting until she’s actually 4 to start.
My “big school” kids. 🙂
Now I know these pictures can make it look like everything in our family is just hunky-dory. It actually took me about 30 minutes to get enough decent shots for this post. By the time we finished, two children had burst into tears.
So – here are a few of the “outtakes” it took to get a nice set of pictures.
Pooh was bitten by a mosquito. As you can see, it was on par with a mortal injury.
Piglet refused to hold her sign right side up and required assistance from Roo. Tigger was visibly getting tired of holding her “Mom is taking a picture” smile.
Good enough, right? 🙂
