Church Directory Photos

This past Saturday, we went to church for the directory photo. Things went surprisingly well during the photo taking time. The kids didn't start to get bored until we sat down to look at the photos. Squeaky was wiggling so much we could barely hold her. Little Man was trying to grap everything within reach. Blondie was the best one. She just sat and took everything in.

During this "unruly time", the photographer wanted us to give her a list of people that would like to have a photo. This was just a ploy so she could say "You need to order X number of photos for everyone". The father just said "How about giving us a price list and we'll decide on how many and what size". That seemed to be the simplest solution. That didn't work for the photographer. She started in with "Well, if you order more photos, you get a bigger discount". Blah, blah, blah. Either she doesn't have kids or couldn't see the impatience of our kids. It didn't take long for us to grow impatient too. Why couldn't they just give us what we wanted rather then making us sit there and listen to a sales pitch? Is it just me to think this would have been easier? It was like trying to control animals without a cage while listening to a lecture.
