My First Day at School

SchulanfangIn Germany, on your first day of school your parents prepare a “Schultüte” for you, which is full of sweets and pencils and crayons and other useful stuff for school. This must have been in 1982.

You will most likely find me in the forest, next to the lake, reading a book. Just follow the cigar smoke!

  1. This is lovely. Very symbolic too. I like the idea of sharing. Giving school the stationery is also practical too. The boy in the picture combed his hair very well. He looked very smart and confident. Thank you for the lovely image.

  2. Great stuff. Thanks for sharing. My wife has a similar shot and it is hanging on her parent’s wall.

  3. I had no idea about this. What a lovely idea!

    This is pretty much adorable. Is there any significance to the lady bug? For us, (i.e. in the U.S.) it just basically is an omen of good luck.
    In addition to documenting my son’s first week , this makes me want to dig up my own picture from… 1986, complete with full Catholic school uniform, peter pan collar, saddle shoes (yikes).
