I Knew It!

I have had the nagging feeling for over a month now that there was something I needed to do. I couldn't place it though. I had talked to nearly every friend lately, my parents, my brother. I have listed all the band practices, holiday parties, snack days, and letter of the day on the calender. What on earth could I be forgetting?

Then I was cleaning out my car this weekend. I had taken 2 bags of clothes to Goodwill on Sunday. Bags that had been in my trunk for 3 months (sshhhh... don't tell my husband, he thought they were already gone). I drug a couple pair of my shoes out of the backseat, and a black suit I had taken to IN back in May for the funeral of my best friends mom. Buried beneath the junk....

The booklet and CD of my beautiful 5 year old boys pictures! I had taken him to have his special Kindergarten pictures made back in August. I totally forgot! I had made each of the girls a special smocked or pleated dress that they had fancy pictures made in, and I had dug out the outfit my husband wore in his special picture when he was 5 for my son to wear. He looked absolutely adorable. She even lets the kids bring their favorite thing and makes some less formal pictures with their special item. He picked the shotgun he got from his namesake grandfather who passed away the month before. This blessed photographer didn't flinch when I told her that was what he wanted to bring. She said it would be great and she would bring out the horse saddle and cowboy hat for him. Bless her heart- she is wonderful!

But then after a few days of showing off my beautiful child #4, I threw them in the back of the car in a rush and hadn't thought much of them since. I haven't ordered any, I haven't done anything. I showed them around when I first got the proofs, but after that- nada! So I made a note on my handy dandy calender to call this wonderful photographer, apologize profusely, and hope that I can still order the pictures.

Wish me luck
