Tuesday's Tips 4 Pics

First Day of School Pics

In the next week, most kids will be asked to pose for their "First Day of School" picture.



Some will be holding cute little chalkboards their parents made ahead of time, some will be standing in the same ol' spot they've stood in since kindergarten and some will be disheveled with an annoyed look on their face urging their parents to get it over with already!



Wherever your kiddo lands, these pictures have become a tradition in this day and age of social media and are likely to be posted now and again on the last day of school!





Putting your first day of school pic in an album now will make it super easy to find in May/June when you take the last day of school pic and want to compare just how much your child has grown this year!
