Throw-Back to School
In honour of a successful back-to-school week for my little boy, here are a couple of shots of me around Grade 1 and Grade 2. My parents used to take us for those studio shots (they probably bought Sears packages for us) every six months.
Here I am in Grade 1 - I'm liking the pink textured turtleneck. I remember wearing that top a lot, the itchy polyester feel of it on my skin more comforting than uncomfortable. Not so much the haircut though. Can you tell my mother did the honours?
This picture was taken when I was in Grade 2. I was very much into jumpers that year (actually, probably for much of my childhood and adolescence). I suspect I may have lost some teeth, hence the closed mouth grin. Shiny cap of hair, though. It grew in quite nicely. Too bad it now has the texture of a horse mane. Albeit a coloured horse mane.
