Today the kids in our area went back to school. We had a long summer; they are starting school a couple weeks later than they used to around here. It makes more sense for a number of reasons – one important one being the cost of air conditioning when it’s 100°F (40°C) outside.
Today is the first school year in 12 years I don’t have to drive somebody to school.
Anyway, this morning I asked them if I could take their picture on the first day. Unbelievably they said “yes”, so here they are:
That’s Sarada on the left, she’s a junior in highschool. And Shakti on the right, a freshman at the same school.
Here is how they looked on their first day of school in 1999, when going into kindergarten and 2nd grade:
That’s Shakti on the left and Sarada on the right. They went to Catholic school for a few years – see the uniform.
