THROWBACK POST: Originally posted in August of 2012. These are my favorite back to school pictures. Love them! Love these children.
In many cities it’s the first day of school…
There are smiling faces all over Facebook this morning. Children in new clothes. With backpacks. And sports bags. Ready to go.
This year both of my children are in high school. One starting as a Freshman. One finishing up as a Senior. And today was their first day.
What is wrong with this picture? And these children?
They weren’t in the mood to do 1st Day of School pictures. The ones I take on the front steps every year.
I tried to get them to coöperate. Asked them to turn around. So they did.
But with their eyes closed.
And it wasn’t planned. They both sort of turned their backs to me when I pulled out the camera. Then I asked them to turn around. So they did. But with their eyes shut.
Classic Daughter & Son move. Also classic that they worked together, without words…
So all the other parent’s have ‘nice’ pictures of their kids heading of to school.
And I’ve got these beauties for the family photo album…
