Send us your first day of school photos!
For parents, that Staples commercial from a few years back may actually be true: This is the most wonderful time of the year. Your kids may not think so but for you, the first day means you can get back to the routine and not have to bounce from one summer camp to the next.
And we want to share your memories of that first day. E-mail pics to firstname.lastname@example.org of your kids in their brand new clothes, smiling -- or not -- as they head back to the classroom. You can see photos from years' past in our Back to School photo gallery.
Times photographers also will be out taking photos, so we want to know where first-time kindergarten parents might be hanging out after they drop off their wee ones. Let us know where the annual Boo-Hoo Breakfasts will be held and maybe you'll see us there. And if you think you will be boo-hooing that day, check out these tips to get you through.
-- Sherry Robinson and Karen McAllister, Times moms
