Throwback Thursday: First Day of School Pictures
Okay, show of hands. How many of you parents made sure to take First Day of School Pictures of your kids this year? How many of you had your Facebook feeds full of these pictures?
Yeah, me too. And yeah, my pic of Lana-eating-a-chocolate-donut-before-school posted to your news feed last Wednesday morning around 8:30.
But guess what? These pictures are nothing new. I give you the evidence below:
The three Freston kids. Me, Jen, and Kasey. Circa late August, 1991. I'm heading to 7th grade, Jen's a 4th grader, and cute little Kasey is just starting out in kindergarten. Our mom made us pose for a picture in the front yard before we walked across the road to school. And with all that fluffy hair, a bad pair of glasses, and enough hope and enthusiasm to last the school year, we smiled and let her take that picture. Because just like today, First Day of School Pictures were just what you did
