Capture The Moment!

Today was school photo day. I love this day in elementary school. Each child is in their Sunday best and we do everything possible as teachers to keep their clothes pressed, their hair frizz free and their mouths clean.

As a teacher, it is a momentous occasion; the class photo captures a moment where I and 19 special little people are forever connected. We will forever be a part of each other’s lives and hold a special place in our hearts for each other. But for a parent, I also think how a school photo captures such an important milestone in their child’s life. Each photo throughout grade school marks another year of growth, another year of excitement. But also how the photos captured today, might someday be shown at their high school graduation or their wedding, or even be placed in an album for the student’s own children to see one day.

So as Joshua Atticks says, ‘Time will never stand still and those moments that bring us such joy become memories in an instant. To capture such a moment and record it forever is truly monumental.’

As I post, I can not help but think about all the moments, memories, emotions, and thoughts I have captured. So far this journey has been remarkable for me. Thank you to all my family and friends who are sharing in my journey. I hope that we all continue to capture the moments in our lives that are truly the most important to us.
