School’s Out for Summer, 2015 Edition

Today was the last day of 10th grade for Athena, and per tradition here, she stood for portraiture marking this auspicious occasion. Those of you with excellent memories will note she is wearing the same ensemble as she did for the first day. This is not a coincidence.

  1. She has a real ‘don’t mess with me’ look. She also looks very much like her mother. I suspect the two are not unconnected :) . And yes, lovely hair! Have a great summer.

  2. They grow up fast, don’t they?

    The difference between the picture at the beginning of the year and this one is striking.

  3. My kids still have another three weeks before school lets out. They think this is very unfair. Neither is going to be able to wear their first day of school ensemble again, since both sons have done considerable growing over the school year. They started last August at 5’8″ and 5’6″ respectively, and are closing out the year at 6′ even and 6’2″. Younger son is highly pleased to be taller than his older brother.

  4. I had the same response they Rick did – this was clearly a growing year for her. And she does have lovely hair!

  5. Congratulations to Athena!

    My 10th grade experience was fun (and educational) but 11th and 12th were even better, just due to having my act a little more together. I hope it’s the same for her. It’s ALL in what you make it.

    I need to get one of those awesome t-shirts.

  6. What I see when I compare this with the beginning of the year pic, it seems that this was the year that Athena changed from a girl to a young woman. I know this will be hard for both of her parents, but it was bound to happen sooner or later.

  7. Congratulations to Athena! My youngest daughter, who graduates high school in two weeks, is also a big manga/anime fan. (Hetalia, Attack on Titan, Death Note, and many more.) Good luck to Athena as she continues her journey toward adulthood!
