I Heart Faces-Back to School

Back to school pics… not happening for me this year. My one and only started middle school, and he made it abundantly clear that he was not posing, either before school or AT school, any more. We did go out the weekend before to an old barn, and I took “entering middle school” portrait photos, but they don’t capture the “moment” of entering middle school. *sigh*
But, I do take photos for the school events, and the back to school event that I most look forward to is our “Circle of Prayer”, usually held the second week of school. Faculty, staff, students, parents, and pastors circle around facing the school, hold hands, and pray. For the school year; for students; for teachers; for wisdom and guidance. And then, they turn and face outward.. to the community. And they pray, once again, for God’s protection and guidance for all of those who surround the school. I love this photo of one of my friends and her boy; what a blessed way to start school.
