It's not always a happy, smiley face

When we scrap book, I know most of us tend to choose the most desirable photos, the ones with the cutest smile, the best clothing...etc., but sometimes it's fun to pick out the photos that depict a certain emotion....emotions that later lead to a wonderful milestone:

First day of summer school LO 08

These photos, for instance, were from his first ever Summer school days back in 2008.  He was so afraid of the school bus, and after 4 days of riding it, he finally enjoyed it on day #5.  The photo on the bottom, far right - he is almost crying when he sat at the school sidewalk waiting for class to begin.  Just merely 3 years old.  So in this case, a less desirable photo that shows a memory I will always have of him conquering a fear he had!  Fun to showcase these moments and look back on them.

it really is a delightful LO Tiffany and you are so right... it's a memory that needs to be kept. Imagine in years to come, Chris will laugh at the fears he had then.
