15 years ago, in July of 2005, I made an album as a gift for my dear daughter for her bridal shower. My DD keeps this album, but I found the photos of the album pages in my computer. Some of pages look pretty primitive, but they are so valuable for me as a memory about my young years and my sweet, beautiful, intelligent, patient, kind, loving and beloved daughter.
In Ukraine / Russia, the children start to attend school at 7-year-old age. They start from the 1st grade and study 11 years. At the time when me / my DD attended school, the students had to wear the uniforms. There were the brown or navy color dress with the white collar and cuffs on top of regular ones and an apron for the girls. It was the white apron for the holidays and black one for the rest days. The first school day always is the holiday for kids, teachers, parents.
This LO about my DD's first school day at the first grade.
It was pretty cold outside (the school year starts on September 1st). TFL!
