Who wants to go to school on a Saturday. Not many, but when our Texas weather throws a lot of snow at us our kids have to make up those days some how. The decision to hold school on a Saturday normally would have bothered me more in the past than it did at this point in my life. Since I can no longer sleep in for an unforeseeable amount of time due to my baby feeding obligations, I had no problem waking the other child up to suffer right along with me. Just kidding, kinda.
It turns out that having a make up day on a Saturday is one of the smarter choices one can make when deciding what day you want to make up on. I was informed that due to certain laws children can only attend school for so many hours in a given week. This allowed the make up day to let out at noon thirty apposed to the normal 3pm. The school also decided to reschedule field day to be held on this Saturday.
Since I was up anyway I decided to head to school and attend field day while taking some pictures. This definitely brought a world of challenges and has already given me another project to work on. The lighting was incredibly harsh, but that was to be expected. Spring and Summer don’t often give us the lovely soft box lighting from clouds in this part of the country. The hardest part for me though was trying to find places to shoot where the background wasn’t completely distracting. Not only were my choices limited to parking lots and car filled streets, I had to consider where to position myself to avoid having the other hundreds of students fill the background.
All in all the kids had fun. I had fun and got to spend the day with my daughter.
