It started out as a joke, but it has become one of my favorite traditions. Here’s my 2019-2020 Back to School Photo.
Eight years ago, I was scrolling through Facebook. Many of my friends had posted their kid’s back to school pictures. The photos were adorable. The kids had smiling faces full of hope for the future. I don’t have children so I didn’t have any “back to school photos” for my family and friends to admire. As I was sitting there feeling sorry for myself, I had a crazy thought. What if I took a back to school photo? What if I took the picture from the perspective of being really tired after your first day back to school?
The photo was funny and made me laugh. Next year, I took another photo. I now have 8 pictures of me sprawling across beds, floors, desks etc.
The photo still makes me laugh every year. It’s going to be a great school year.
