1 orb and two orbs that changed shape into moonlike objects

Picking up my daughter from school i see a white "star" in the sky. Ive been seeing these ufos for over a year now so when i saw it i knew to run to my car and get my camera(that i carry with me all the time now). On the way to the car i spot another brighter white star below i to the right. So im looking back and fourth between my daughter(8yrs old) and the two white orbs, when out of thin air a third red orb appears to the right of the white orbs. They are approaching my location from the east at about the speed of a small plane, at this point im running to my car for camera. When i get my camera they are just about overhead, the first orb i spotted is quite faint and looks like a small star at a high altitude. The other two however, to my amazement, have changed thier shape. They appear like two small crescent moons, one bright white the other bright red, and they are slowly spinning. The spinning motion is not constant, the spinning is fast at times then! slow at other times, going one way then the other. Both the red and white "moons" are spining but independently, at this point even my daughter is kinda freaking out. The other star like one was still slightly off to the left of the two spinning "moons" but kinda just floated along with them from the east to the west. So now these things are above me and i actually can see them in my cameras view finder. I do get 8 pictures of the two spinning moon like objects and accidently get a 2sec video. When i got the pics home and inspected them closer i was excited, although the pics don't do the sighting justice some of the detail when zoomed in i could not see with the naked eye. After seeing the detail ive concluded that they were not only spining they were changing shape. In the pictures you will see the two spining/changing ones, but the third starlike one was there above to the left out of view. The sighting ended with the object flying over the homes/trees that i was standi! ng next to and out of sight. The only thing i would like to ad! d was as im on the sidewalk next to my daughter,taking pictures and both of us looking up, about a dozen kids with parents also leaving the school walked by me. Almost as amazing as the ufos flying above my head was that NOT ONE person asked me what we were taking pictures of or even bothered to look up to see what i was looking at for almost 5 min. This truly disturbed me, i wanted to scream look up, but it just felt awkward so i didn't. In retrospect i wish i would have tho.

((NUFORC Note: We believe the objects are clusters of balloons. PD))
