[twitter]It is a mandatory post for parent bloggers – the one with the first day of school pictures. If you don’t write this post this week, you are not a parent blogger.
Some do it because their children are characters in their own bloggy version of a reality show, I do it because I want to be able to easily find these pictures each year.
We don’t go overboard with blackboards, and themes, and all sorts of perfect pinterestable ideas for back to school. We just take some pics.
These are my favorite of the year, and infinitely better than the school pictures.
This year is extra special because the boys are back in the same school. A school they can walk to. A school where our family can feel like a family. A school where we are comfortable. A school where their needs are looked after. A school where we are paying thousands of dollars in tuition.
In Calgary, where new communities wait decades to get new schools, this is the price one must pay to have a familiar, friendly, walkable school experience.
But enough politics, we are over the moon to have both boys back to school, and don’t these formal uniforms just knock it out of the park?
Today was the best day ever. Period.
Sounds like a good day to me.
