Photo Pairs: First Day of School (Past and Present)

Clara started her Senior Year of High School last Thursday, and I created this post for instagram. That's her on the left on her first day of pre-school in 2002 and, fourteen years later, heading off to her final year. This pair shows so much - I'm really proud of myself for taking a photo of her on those stairs every year; really glad we got rid of the carpet and painted the walls; and amazed by how she's grown (while still being so much the same).
Linking up with Helena's photo pairs project. Check out her blog here.

A good looking girl in both photos! We took similar photos every year in the same spot in our living room. They're some of my favorites. Hope Clara's year is fabulous!

They grow up so fast! Your daughter is lovely. What a good idea to take a picture in the same place. Good luck to her in her last school year. My daughter starts her last year the week after next.

I've just come inside from taking a last first day of school picture here too.

That gorgeous smile hasn't changed
