It’s Official: The Kids Are Back to School

We don’t know about you, but the gals of Family Friendly Cincinnati are pretty pumped about the new school year beginning.

One of our favorite mementoes of childhood (our own and our kids’) are those classic “first day of school” photos. They capture so much: how the kids have grown since last year, their attitudes toward school and life changes, those “first day of school” outfits so carefully selected, and the hope and promise of what’s to come.

So we’re celebrating a new school year with some of our favorite back-to-school pics, snapped over the past couple of weeks — as well as a couple of old-school classics :)

Michelle’s kids

Michelle’s trio of kiddos. Her comment about her youngest: “Three weeks later, Meredith has her first day of school. #1 The boys were mad she started so late. #2 They were even more mad to discover that they stagger their first few weeks so today was only a two-hour day.”

Amy’s boys

Katie’s kids

Katie's kids headed back to school.

Love Amy’s interpretation of this photo: “I love Ella’s bohemian braid/wrap on the side. Max always looks like he is thinking of something hilarious (or just farted) and Sam looks like he just ‘tolerating’ the antics of all of his crazy siblings and wants to restore order. Immediately.”

Shannan’s boys
