School Photos - My Baby's First Day of School

07 September 2011

My baby starts school today.  How is he already going to school?  I know it’s not required school, it’s pre-kindergarten, but still.  Today is bittersweet for me.  I am so unbelievably excited for him, but a little sad that he's become such a big boy.  He is going to love school.  I have never met such a social child.  The kid craves company and loves making new friends.  He’s been asking for over a year if he can become a big boy and go to school. 
Every parent wants to get a picture of their children on their first day of school.  Well, here are some ideas:
  • Get the detail shots...the shoes lined up or the backpacks filled up and sitting by the door
  • Get details of your child getting ready, maybe perfecting their hair, or tying their shoes
  • Print out a sign with your child's grade for him/her to hold.  Take this same pic every year
  • Take a picture of your child's back as they get on the school bus.

After we made him give us hugs (he was so ready to just have us leave), we said our goodbyes and he ran off to play.  Bub, I am so proud of you and can't believe you've gotten so big already.


  1. How precious!! I can't believe he's growing up so fast! Miss y'all!

  2. I know that day was bittersweet for you, but I’d like to commend you on doing a great job in preparing him for it. And it looks like he didn’t even need much preparation, as being such a social child, it’s quite obvious that he’s excited for this. I bet you were proud of him.
