First Day of School


August 21, 2013 by aljakatz

With Summer quickly becoming a distant past, I am surprised by my mixed emotions on this day.  Today is the first day of school for my kids, one a high school sophomore and the other a high school senior.  Like me, they have mixed emotions.  They are excited about seeing their friends on a regular basis but also disgusted at the upcoming school workload ahead of them.

I noticed that Facebook was inundated with first-day-of-school photos of all of the my friends’ kids.  The ones that are starting their first day of Kindergarten all the way to the photos of the kids beginning their first day of college.  Yet, there was not a single photo of a Mom on their kids’ first day of school.  So… here you go!  These are my first “selfies”!  As you can tell I did not know how to hold my iphone properly or even one-handed.  My children would be laughing at me if they could see me attempting to do this!




Hope you AND your kids have a great first week of school!
