It definitely wouldn't be back to school official without the back to school photo of our kids on their first day.
A special kind of excitement goes along with that picture in front of the bus stop, front doors to the school, or on the house front steps.
For parents, it's a cool memento of how much the kids grew over the summer, how their styles changed and exactly how excited they were to go back. For the kids, well, for most, it is just about making the parents happy.
I try to take pictures every year (when I remember), a tradition my parents did when I was young, posed with my new backpack and lunch box.
