I have realized something.
Something about my kids.
They are rarely clean..
....all at the same time.
When trying to find some snapshots to send to your son that is living half a world away, this fact makes things difficult.
Sure you may get one or two that are presentable
But inevitably one of them typically looks like this
while another like this
while another may be in pajamas at 1:00 in the afternoon.
So I have discovered that if I can corral all of them for 6.2 seconds as we are heading out the door to church every Sunday that my odds of capturing four decently clean smiling faces increase exponentially.
This is a good thing.
Our hair may not yet be brushed.
Out buttons may not yet be fully buttoned.
The sleep crusties may still be in their eye.
They are clean.
And with the promise of pancakes being dangled before them...
Good photos yee shall have.
