Ahh, school's back in session. For the parents (most of us any way), you can hear the sighs of relief. For the kids (most of them any way), you can hear them whining when they have to get up early that first day back. Waaa!!!
Here are Josh and Ryan, ready to go on the first day of school with their new clothes and backpacks. Ryan was starting 1st grade and Josh 3rd. They were styling in their "Hammer" pants made by their mom and their matching t-shirts. Both boys were probably more excited about their pants than school itself.
"Hammer" pants were made popular by MC Hammer back in the late 80's, early 90's for those of you too young to remember. I can think of one good thing about Hammer pants - the waistband isn't hanging halfway down their butts while the kid's trying to walk. On the other hand, I hope they never come back in style again!
I am so glad Karl had these pictures in his stash. I think the boys were adorable on this day in time. You really get a sense of the brotherhood they shared and still do...somewhat. :)
