Take Us Back In Time Tuesday - 9/1/09

This week's Take Us Back In Time Tuesday post is not one photo, but a series of photos. This montage will reveal the type of child my baby brother was. It also explains a LOT about the man he has become.

The photo below was taken on Easter of 1980. Please note the identical dresses my sister, K. (on the left) and I are wearing. We are only eleven months apart, my mother dressed us as though we were twins. My sister always got pink. I always got blue. I guess I was too much of a tomboy to wear pink.

When I first looked at this photo, I wondered how long my parents made us squint in the sun. How many shots did it take to get this one image?

Look at the poor boy's expression! The glare is so bright he can't even keep his eyes open!

In the same album, I came across another photo. Once again, my siblings and I are outside posing, this time for my sister's 8th grade graduation. The sun seems to be behind the clouds. I consider this a good thing. I think if the sun HAD been out that day, those flowers on my sister's slipcover comforter dress would have bloomed right off of her.

So, an overcast day and YET? Still THAT face. You can almost hear him saying, "Cheeeeeese!"

Whatever the condition is that your poor brother had, my husband had it too. These are what his photos look like for several years of his childhood.
