Kristen is having a meme. "The purpose of Sincerely 'Fro Me to You (every Thursday) is to link up a post about something from your past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of your 'fro or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. We just want to read about something that will never see the inside of a scrapbook either because it's not worthy or because you can't find your fancy crinkle cut scissors.
I decided to share some of my school pics with everyone. I guess I'm feeling brave today. I also wanted to let Kristen know is she isn't alone in her Ugly Year. Although, I'm pretty sure I had more than one year that would fit that bill.
Here I think I'm still little kid cute. Although, I had VERY short hair all the way until high school & was more than once mistaken for a boy. I still remember the time I was eating out with my Grandpa & he was asked what his "grandson" would have. I think I was about four. Ahhh, the memories!
Kindergarten - circa 1977 -
Don't you just love that rainbow striped shirt? I'm pretty sure I was wearing bell bottoms.
The next one was from second grade. I actually like this photo, but remember I was about 7 in it. What did I know then (or now for that matter).
I'm thinking the above one was seventh grade. Not really sure as they aren't marked. After all I was the fourth kid out of five. My mom was tired of marking all those photos! What can I say? I have fine flat hair - not much you can do with it (not much now either!!) and that cowboy style shirt? Yikes!
Now I know this was is from 8th grade (so I was about 13) since mom did write on the back of this one. I'm wearing my styling polo shirt (layered of course!) with the popped collars. So cool it hurts! And I'm trying something new with my hair - the side part. What I'm hoping to conceal is the horrid widow's peak I have in the front of my hair. Thank goodness for bangs!
And the scariest one of all? This is one of my senior photos (obviously). It was taken after a morning of marching practice. At least I have longer hair now but I permed it. I used to perm it a lot. It helped - at least I think it did. Remember the fine hair I had before - baby fine people! Notice that nice big 80's hair I'm styling. And no, I was not drugged out. Maybe tired. I really hate this photo & I can't believe I'm putting it out there for all to see, but there you have it - my school pics.
