A Funny Story

I am posting Trevor's school pictures, but I have a funny thing to post as well.

First let me explain that Trevor has never been a child to doodle, or write things on paper or anything like that. Jordan is our creative child who makes pictures, notes, cards, ect for everyone. Trevor hasn't been very interested in writing or reading either. The last month or so he has began to sound out all sorts of words he sees and is getting much better. A couple days ago he informed me that he needed to write a note to Jann, the aid on his school bus. I told him he could, and went on with what I was doing. Pretty soon Trevor brought me this paper. I couldn't help but laugh! He didn't understand why it was so funny to me. He has learned what Tattoo's are and loves to put those temporary ones on. He wants everyone to wear them and loves to see how long it will last before coming off. To tell you the truth, he probably doesn't even know that there are permanent ones. So anyway, in his mind this was how you spell Tattoo. Pretty funny, huh!


These are Trevor's school pictures. I am just wanting to know anyone/everyone's opinion on them. Be honest. Scott thinks they could be better and we should retake them. I kinda think they are cute, because they show his personality so well. What do you think?


Scott also doesn't like his shirt he picked out. I had forgotten it was picture day and he was already dressed when he reminded me. Those of you who don't know Trevor well... he DOES NOT CHANGE CLOTHES. Once he is dressed, he is dressed and no matter how much you try to convince him to change, he won't. It's a lovely battle we have on a regular basis.



So what do you think? I look at it from a stand point of how difficult it is to get any professional pictures taken of him and this picture does show his personality and his favorite shirt. Every year he has had his school picture taken with his favorite shirt of the year. This just happened to be this years. Sigh.... please be honest and let me know if you think we should do retakes? Or what would you do?

I think the pictures are cute. I see nothing wrong with them at all. I think it is neat that he gets his pictures with his favorite shirt every year. If that is his favorite shirt this year it just seems right that he gets his picture with it. The picture he drew is cute too. He did a pretty good job sounding out the word to spell it.

I think the picture is cute. I love the expression on his face. The little smirk. It's your choice on the retake. But if you get a retake, can you choice between the two?

Why is no one seeing this my way? The shirt says blame the dog! Would you want that hanging on your wall! I need some men to comment!

I think he looks cute in the picture. My favorite pictures are the ones that show the real you, or rather him in this case ;). So I may vote to keep them.

The trouble with retakes Scott is, in the next ones while he may wear a shirt you like more, he may be sticking his tongue out or something? How will that look on your wall? ;)

I think the pictures are super cute! He looks very sweet! Clothes are overrated. ;) NO seriously, dressing a boy for school pictures where you know they're gonna be in teh playground is really a joke. :P
Actaully his writing is really smart! Go Trevor! :D

I love when they start to sound out words to spell things. I think he did a great job spelling tatoo!

TOO funny. Love the drawing. I think it could go both ways you can leave this picture and then scott you could take one at home of him and print it off in an 8X10 and everyone wins:)

I think his school pictures are so cute! He looks so sweet in them. I think the shirt is just fine. It will be a fun memory for him to have a pic in his favorite shirt.

Retakes are hard. I say keep it!
