MIAGD: Make it a great day
For most of the schools in The Miami Valley school will resume today or tomorrow and the “first day of school” photos have begun making their way across my social feed.
It wasn’t until around 2005 that I discovered there were these obligatory photos. I was still a fairly new dad and it was one of those memos I didn’t receive.
I began taking the photos at the front door, in the front yard, on the side walk, in the parking lot of the high school, or the following week.
One year I discovered other parents had already posted photos. The boys had already left for school and I was heading to teach at the middle school. I simply drew a picture of the boys off on their first day of school. It worked.
Here’s to the beginning of a new year.
Make it a great day, one day at a time and it will turn into a great year, as well.
These are not “first day of school” photos but they’re my babies.
