The teacher gave her a zero, saying DD is lying, and I am livid!
They're studying genetics in Health. The whole eye color thing.
The teacher gave the class an assignment to take as many pictures of family members eyes as possible and make a family tree. If a picture is not available, at least write in an eye color.
I don't have the pictures, we printed them and deleted them, but basically no one in our family has the same eye color.
We have several shades of blue from almost colorless to a deep sapphire, a few grays like the sky right before the storm, various shades of brown from coal black to caramel colored, and me and my grandma have pine green eyes.
For a quick example:
I have pine green eyes
DH has stormy sky gray
OS has sapphire blue (no, he isn't DH's, but his father has the same color of eyes, which was documented.)
OD has dark gray, almost the exact same shade as DH's
YD has light greenish gray with dark gray flecks like a cat
YS has dark gray but they have a green cast to them that almost makes them look brown in certain lights.
My brother has honey colored eyes
SIL has blue
Nephew has caramel colored eyes (slightly lighter colored than my brother)
Niece has dark chocolate colored eyes (they're almost as coal black as my grandpa's but not quite.)
DD's teacher said NO family can have such varying shades, that DD did NOT do this assignment, she just pulled random pictures off the internet and she did it to make her family look unusual. The hell she didn't do the assignment! And those are real pictures of her family members eyes!
It is a "joke" on my moms side that all of her siblings have maple syrup colored eyes, they all married blue eyed people (various shades) and only ONE of us 11 grandchildren has brown eyes (my brother) and only ONE of us has green eyes (me) and all the rest of my cousins are blue eyed. It is even more strange that all 20-something great-grandchildren have light blue eyes, except mine and my brothers kids.
I have an appointment to speak with her at 12:30 and to "prove" these are really pictures of our family. I don't know how I am supposed to do that unless I take her to meet every single one of them in person!
Update on the meeting is HERE
Several people have asked over and over why I didn't save the pictures. They were pictures mainly of eyes, with the occasional nose or forehead. They were not pictures of the whole face. They were taken for a school project, printed straight from the camera, and deleted. I never thought I would need them again and they weren't something I really wanted to keep. I didn't keep my other DD's pictures last year when we had to take pictures every 5 minutes of water freezing for a science project. To me, they were the same.
Also, the question keeps coming up about the descriptive colors. DD did NOT put those on her project. I put those in my post to show the different shades, which is what the teacher specifically pointed out in DD's pictures could NOT be true and be her family members because according to her, kids from the same bio parents have the same exact eye color, not different eye color and not different shades of one color.
