Blog #55~ School Days
I can’t believe tomorrow is Nick’s last day of school. He graduates from high school on Sunday. Recently after our basement flooded, I was going through some wet boxes and found my old “school days” book. I flipped through the yellow pages looking at pictures and my vital statistics (height, weight, activities, awards and achievements.)
Nice handwriting there, T…… 🙂
This prompted me to share some school day pictures of Nick. I pulled out his box of memorabilia from his closet. Nestled inside I found his old baby blanket, christening candle, artwork, an autographed baseball and his book.
There’s just one problem. I only filled out first grade, the rest well……crickets….chirp…
Here are some of Nick’s school Portraits over the years 🙂
Nick’s 2nd Grade picture. I love this toothless grin, one of my favs!
4th Grade, this is my Mom’s favorite……….
In many pictures, Nick smiles with his eyes…… As Tyra Banks calls it “smizing” 😉
The awkward early pre-teen years… Don’t we all have one we’d rather leave stuffed in the drawer?
Speaking of awkward, check out this mug shot from freshman year. None of my family has seen this one. This photo package remains fully in tact stuffed in a shoe box.
It’s never easy to get a good photograph of Nick. Trying to get him to look into the camera, smile, keep his hands from flapping is a daunting task. Having Down syndrome and autism makes for some interesting stories. If you haven’t read Blog #5~Ready, Set, Action- Check it out ( June 2012 archives). It’s a classic Nick story 🙂
High School ……He’s getting bigger, and it looks like I should have run the Norelco over his stubble…..
Junior year of high School…..
Hope you enjoyed a look back at Nick. My how he has grown. If you want to see Nick’s senior portrait you’ll have to wait until next week. I think this blog just became Nick’s school days book. That’s what is in my noggin this week!
