Revealing expressions

You can tell the girl on the left is a handful. You don't develop a grin like that without stirring up something. The girl on the right is almost repentent before they even get to church. The girl in the middle is the sensible one. The other girls listen to her - she has her head on straight. Great photo! Love the outfits. And those expressions just can't be beat!

I really like the Pancho Villa look, Agnes!

Maybe sisters

They all look pretty light...
