I like to take some photos of my kids on their first day of school. I think I have done it every year.
Today I got home earlier so I could surprise my kids and take a few photos when they got off the school bus.
To my dismay, they ran faster than I could point and click. They ran away from me and into the house before I could take any good photos.
I was not going to give up. I had to command them to come out of the house so I could take photos. They finally did, but they were not so happy to have photos taken, especially my son.
It’s getting harder to make them do things as they get older. But I will not give up taking their first school day photos. I plan to keep doing this ritual till they graduate from high school in a few short years.
Looking through the first school day photos and watching them grow over the years from kindergarten to high school in a few photos would be a nice thing to do later in life.
