The first day of school can be really nerve-racking. This means either the first day of preschool or the first day of kindergarten — whatever it is, it's your first day away from home surrounded by strangers. Some kids will cry and latch onto their parents and others will calmly go without a fuss. No matter what it is, it's always different from your last day of school.
The last day of school can be a combination of emotions including excitement, anxiety, fear, and relief. Relief that school and all those study session all nighters are finally over. Fear and excitement for what life after school has in store for you.
And once that day finally comes, it's nice to snap a photo and compare it to your first day of school and just look at all that growth in between.
#1. Looks like that growth spurt definitely kicked in.
No shorty here.
#2. When sons outgrow their moms.
At least he’s still got that little cute stance going.
#3. He doesn't even look like the same person as the boy in the photo!
Interesting how different a person can grow up looking.
#4. Looks like he's got a little bit of attitude in both photos.
Must have been a handful for his teachers.
#5. A collage of a boy on his first day of school for 13 years.
The evolution of a young boy becoming a young adult.
