Junior year isn’t quite over and already we’re hurtling into senior year.
Friday’s email stream brought a note from the Greenwich High activities lady: Catherine has three weeks to schedule her senior portrait, which will be taken during one of two weeks over the summer.
EEK! We were just walking her to the bus stop for kindergarten. No matter. There will be plenty of time this school year to lament the passing of time.
As you might guess, the notice sent Catherine into hair-outfit-makeup panic, and got her talking about a radical hairdo change. I tried to talk her out of it, reminding her that THIS will be the photo for the yearbook, that will hang for years in her grandparents’ living rooms … and will be how she is remembered at reunions, etc., forever.
Of course this got her asking about my senior picture and Basil’s. She thumbed through our yearbooks to find this:
Naturally, we had a good, long laugh.
Senior Year…starting early for sure Terri. Alex already took his senior portrait for next year…..proofs got posted already for picking. The next 12 months are going to be crazy!! 31 years later…wish I could take my senior pic over again
OMG! already? Holy cow, and yes the next 12 months will move at warp speed…. Hang on!
Sounds like you had a quality moment with your family looking at old yearbooks together. (I like the sweater.)
Nobody ever told me my senior picture would be such a lasting memory for others–that probably would’ve freaked me out. I believe I just tried to look like my best self, freezing that moment in time as any portrait would.
Funny story 🙂
As I recall, your senior picture is just lovely!
My boys would both attest to the importance of what you wear and your hair. Will’s senior picture was okay; it’s some dance portraits that haunt him, including one that when we received the picture, he immediately left to get his hair cut, something we had been encouraging for weeks! Jon’s senior picture has him with long scraggly hair and a tie-dye t-shirt. He cringes now when he sees it.
Catherine will look beautiful. And you’ll be pleased with it no matter what.
Yes, she’ll look beautiful no matter what!
Hi Terry! Returning your “hop” from Saving Jersey Style-love your blog! Such interesting topics, I will be back to see what you think of next!
Thanks for stopping by!
This is the last year my oldest is in single digits. After that, time will go even faster I believe. Time flies when you’re having fun. That cliche is true at least!!
Yes, it is true! Congratulations on the double-digits: Now the real fun begins! 😉
