I was up to past 12 last night laying everything out, packing snacks, checking and double checking that I had everything needed for a photo shoot (bobby pins, lipstick, hair piece, etcâ€¦) along with all the stuff needed for the boyâ€™s swim lesson, and an infant.
I did H-Gâ€™s hair (it took me a few tries) and pinned and sprayed down everything. We got there a whole ten minutes early, but ended up having to wait forty minutes until our turn. So I had a little girl who was ready to dance, dressed in a spotless white dress with delicate flowers and a face full of makeup and lipstick. She was very active but was very good. I ended up with little lips on my pants by my knee, but thatâ€™s ok because I forgot that after you put on lipstick you are supposed to blot. Kimberly didnâ€™t remind me of that during our practice round. Anyway after finally having her picture, I realized that I left the checkbook at home â€“oh no! The photographer was nice and said I could mail it in. swewhhh. Beside the check, I also forgot to pack H-G a shirt, so she kept her sweat jacket on all day.
I am glad that the ministerâ€™s wives retreat is only once a year!
