That Iconic First Day of School Photo



Ah jeez, our first-day-of-school photo came out a little weird, I took at least 15 photos and this was the best one, he is squinting because he's preparing for the flash, the only way he will look at the camera is if the flash is pulled up. It was muggy and pouring rain, which helped us discover his summer sandals and his raincoat are Spidey matches!

As for school, he loved it! He gets lots of teacher attention and by the time I picked him up he was in his glory in the school's enormous sandbox. No tears from Mom, not that there couldn't have been plenty, but I was strong and denied my feelings once again, a capital survival skill indeed!

Yay!!!! I'm so happy to hear he loved it! :D He looks like such a Biggie Boy in that photo. I was thinking about you all today.

A big hello from your cousin Linda in Houston! Aunt Betty clued me in to your wonderful blog. Your experiences remind me of some of my favorite times with my own two who are now 9 and 10. Hope to cross paths with you some day soon!

Love,

Linda

I don't know, Jimmy looks like he might be somewhat skeptical of what you were planning. Happy you both made it through the ordeal. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Famil e-reunion, sweet! Thanks for the comments, we've done a second day now, it went a lot smoother (as in, the teacher didn't have to give me a tissue for the previously unacknowledged booger on my face.)
