Since everyone is out buying school supplies and heading to back to school night, I thought it would be fun to do a little Throwback Thursday: School Pictures edition. I just know you've been dying to see my gap-toothed, brace-face 6th grade picture...
Pictured above you can see my 4-year-old self, taken at preschool, in 1994. Cute, huh?
Next, we have Kindergarten and 1st grade. I went to a charter school from K-8th grade, so you will notice the uniform in all of these pictures, until I get to high school. Clearly, I got a major haircut sometime between Kindergarten and 1st grade. It also looks like a lost a bit of baby face. I don't quite look so tiny in 1st grade as I did as a little Kindergartener.
On to 2nd and 3rd grade. Both very similar. Similar hair and the exact same outfit. Nice. I look a little bit more tan in the 2nd grade picture. And It looks like I finally started to lose teeth. No more baby front teeth. Also, in 2nd grade I seemed to be growing out my bangs, by 3rd they were fully grown back.
Here we have 4th and 5th grade. Looks like the bangs are back, and it appears that I got my ears pierced! In my 5th grade picture I look shy or something. More timid than the 4th grade pic. And it looks like my mom finally let me stop wearing the plaid vest in my school pictures.
For embarrassments sake, I should probably skip these next 3, but I'll share them if you promise to be nice. This is 6th and 7th grade. 6th grade was by far my worst school picture. I got braces and an expander and it looks like my teeth are actually farther apart than they were before I got them. And I'm pretty sure this was my picture re-take, so just imagine the original one. It looks like between 6th and 7th grade I started plucking my eyebrows. So glad I started doing that.
And we'll finish off with 8th and 9th grade. Man adolescence is such an awkward time. I think I look a little bit more grown up in the 9th grade picture than in the 8th. And you will notice that for the first time ever, I was able to wear regular clothes on picture day! No more uniform. Hoorah!
Happy back to school!
