{Photo-a-Day Project: A personal project that I undertake every January for an entire month taking one photo a day of my children. This is the 11th year of this project.}

      Kristen Cook Photo-a-Day January Project 2019 :: Day 31 // www.kristencook.com.au

      I’ve taken this image for the last few years
      On the last day in January.
      Today, it also happened to fall
      On your first day back to school.
      The last time this happened,
      It was your very first day of junior school, Mia.
      First. Ever.
      This year,
      Is your last year of junior school.
      It seems bittersweet and fitting
      That we were to photograph you both
      In your uniforms today –
      Bathing in the excitement of back to school nerves.
      It also serves as ongoing proof
      That such big events
      Have been part of your January.
      Part of this story.
      And as you look back.
      Part of your history.
      Happy January, 2019.
