The obligatory first-day-of-school post

August 24, 2011

in Reed, Tessa

I post this, as I have posted others, because one day I will be attending their high school graduations. And I will want to look back on this beautiful, glorious, independence-blossoming, confidence-bearing morning.

First day of schoolHere’s to my bloomers.

It’s so hard to accept that summer is over already. Hoping that your bloomers have a great day today!


It Is What It Is August 24, 2011 at 9:45 am

My son’s school doesn’t start until 9/9 so we are squeezing out the last days of summer here (and it will be 100 degrees for the next week, so that is easier to do).

Such a monumental rite of passage, the starting of school. Here’s to learning and growing.

You are amazing. I’m new to your blog from ICLW and I’m blown away by the beautiful mission of your blog (and life). Keep it up.

Also, there is nothing better than the first day of school. It’s a must-document sort of day. Way to go, Mama.

Love your text too. Im sure they’ll love looking back on these one day as well :)

Happy first day of school! We don’t go back till Sept 6th… I’m a wee bit jealous!

I love the hat and backpack combo that Reed is sporting – very retro cool! (But on him, I would expect nothing less!) Congratulations on making it through another summer and on the first day of a new school year – both seem like such a rite of passage, both for them and for us! And I know it goes without saying, but enjoy those little moments of quiet that are now a little easier to grab!

wow! Where did the summer go?!?
Great first day picture!

Next week it will be time for school here and I really don’t know where the summer went. I am still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that this year I am the mom of a 13 year old 8th grader … it seems like just yesterday she was born.

I love the giant backpacks in all the “first day of school” pictures. So darn cute! Congrats on the milestone! :)

I love back to school pictures!! Mine are a Sophomore in HS, a 4th Grader, and two Pre-schoolers this year, that’s a lot! LOL

Happy ICLW from # 86 <3
