School Pictures

In the de-junking & going through the house, I found this book my mom kept with all my school pictures.

For your viewing pleasure enjoy grades 1-12:






Oh, the stages of life you can spot while looking at these pictures: my first perm, when my gappy adult teeth started growing in, my over-sized tortoise shell glasses, the beginning of my grunge stage, when I started dressing myself for school pictures, & the senior picture where I sure thought I was hot stuff.

And P.S. What is with the oscillating between awkward shoulder length to awkward chin length hair?

Oh how I love this post! And you were definitely hot stuff in your senior picture. The weirdest part to me is that you look like such a baby in high school yet in my mind we were so grown up.

You were so cute.....but now you are beautiful! Love the different fashion trends...especially the uber glasses.

A lot of my pictures are eerily similar to these.

Lucky for you you still have those pictures. That would be fine to see mine, but I don't think I own any past like the second grade.

Awww, how sweet. You were the apple of your mom's eye. She loved those school photos. I love seeing how you transformed from an awkward kid into a beautiful young woman. :)

Oh, Olivia--I LOVE this post! Made me so happy. So fun to see all your cute school pictures and basically capture your entire childhood in twelve seconds! I'd love to get all my school pictures lined up together like that. (Or would I? ha Some of them are pretty awful...)

P.S. That fourth picture, with your pink turtleneck and colorful sweater--I had pretty much that EXACT same outfit, and it was when I had glasses, too. We could pretty much have been twins!

Pretty sure I blow dried your hair for your senior pic! :)

Totally agree with Linds - you look SO young but I felt like we were so grown up! Ha ha! What a journey...
