RING RING - Class is in session !
At first glance this is just a picture of dorky little fifth grade me. At least that is what I thought when I first came across it earlier this week. But on closer inspection I see a happy little girl whose mother loved her so much she would spend hours sewing new school clothes for her every year. I see a little girl whose mother paid close attention to detail, right down to the matching hair ribbon and the fuzzy handmade buttons. I see a little girl whose mother made sure her only daughter's hair was brushed and tied neatly before she left for school everyday. And I see a little girl whose father worked hard to provide for his family and made sure his daughter had glasses when she needed them even though she hated them.
