Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school
the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was
already taken. ~Bill Dodds
Today when we got to Little Bit’s school the front lawn was full of people taking pictures of their kids to memorialize the first day of school 2012. Big Guy asked what everyone was doing….
M (Me/Mom…either works) “They are taking their first day of school pictures.”…
BG “Oh, why don’t you ever do that?”
Okay, the reason I write this is because I try to take their pictures, every year, I try to take their pictures…but as much of a tradition it is for me to take their pictures, it is just as much of a tradition for them to avoid the camera. So, here are some of my first day of school pictures through the years….
2011…there is no 2010…I guess I was just too tired that year.
And then this year…2012
And you know what…I don’t think I would want it any other way…because when they are all grown, and when I will look back at the pictures of them growing up, I will know that any smiling face in front of the school would just not have been as sincere as an outstretched palm.
And with that I say…”I hope everyone had a great first day of school!!!”
