New York schools are not in session yet, but this was the first day for children in our area of North Carolina. Without thinking twice, I did what I always did – took a photograph. I was at the creek when the bus went by, so I stepped on the road and snapped a picture of the bus almost obscured by fog. There’s no telling who was getting on the bus, but the event was recorded.
After I downloaded it, I looked for pictures of my children on their first day of school. I was totally surprised that Lise and Kate wore the same dress, one I had made, on their first day of kindergarten. It was new on Lise and three years old on Kate. John $ was our third child and didn’t seem to rate a picture alone. He was loved and treasured, but he was the youngest of all his cousins and got lumped with the crowd.
