My Nervous Nellie started 3rd grade. Can you see her anxious smile?
Eli is a 6th grader this year at the Santa Fe 5/6 Center. He is certain he is too big and cool for first day of school pics. I was able to get a couple before he told me, in no uncertain terms, that he was done.True story - I had to walk away after this pic because I was afraid we were going to have a spat on his first day of school. The neighbors didn't need to be exposed to it. Why can't these kids just cooperate with a fanatical mom for a few minutes?!
Eli and his best buddy Jake started a tradition last year of riding in the hot rod on the first day. I suppose it is a little more cool than the big yellow limo they usually ride. I'm not sure how long this tradition will continue but I hope it's another 6 years :) Jake's mom got a couple of smiles on her camera.
