By now, I’m pretty sure all of the schools in the UAE have started their new school year. How did your first day go, mommies?
For me, since my girls go to different schools (it’s a long story), I had two first days. Just like majority of the schools, my eldest’s first day was on the 28th of August. My youngest, on the other hand, started school on the 1st of September (although, in reality, her official first day was on the 4th of September).
Anyway, if you’re a parent, I’m sure you must have taken at least one photo of your kid on his or her first day. It’s basically a tradition, right? It’s fun to capture their excited faces at the beginning of the school year and look back later to see how much they’ve grown.
Allow me to share the photos of the same "pose" I’ve been taking since our eldest started Kindergarten.
Since we now have two schoolgirls, we had to have a picture of them together. Fortunately, they weren’t moody, and enthusiastically cooperated with me when I told them what I wanted them to do.
I’m really hoping we’ll get to continue this tradition of taking the same kind of first day of school photos for a long time. It’s definitely something nice to look back on when they’re older.
