My first day of first grade, 1983. My mom wet-braided my hair the night before so that I could have those waves. And my Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox- had to have one of those! I also remember the purple shoes... I think they were called "Roos" ? They had a zipper pocket on the side that you put pennies in.
Noah's first day of first grade, 2007. He had a haircut the day before, making sure that the stylist didn't cut any of the top... he's liking the longer look. He had his Star Wars Lego tee laying out to wear for the first day of school for several days. He also came home yesterday with a love note in his backpack from the next door neighbor girl. Oh my.
