When you have a child who lives by his own traditions, little things like "first day of school" don't mean much to him. When lining Axel up to take his photo, backpack on, in the driveway, like generations have done before him, his only request was, "I'll take my own picture."
Straightening up, grinning enormously, he stretched his little arms out in front of him and with a very adult camera, snapped the perfectly centered self-portrait.
Making one hilarious moment into a "pee your pants moment," Axel subsequently took a picture of both Jahred and I...on his first day of school. Fair is fair. So here we are.
"Oh that turned out good," Axel says about each of the photos.
When we arrived at his classroom, Axel dropped his bag at the door and ran inside. First, wanting to see if that fish had been flushed (see previous blog post) and second to break-in a fresh batch of playdoh.
