First Day Photos

Today, I'm linking up with blogger Angry Julie Monday's "Wordless Wednesday." We all know a picture speaks a thousand words. And this one speaks volumes!

I always take a First Day of School photo and have ever since my daughter started kindergarten. Usually, she's dressed up, carrying her new backpack, and smiling from ear to ear.

This year - 8th grade - not so much!

Compare this photo to her 1st grade photo.

Ahh, the joys of being in 8th grade. Life is much "tougher" at 13 than 6.

  1. I can't even tell you how awesome I think this is! I also have an 8th grader -- the difference is, mine gave me a fake smile (that you can tell is fake) LOL I am dying here ~

  2. Thanks, Carol Anne! It's so good to connect with other parents of teens. What a ride!
