Ruby Tuesday - Beginnings

It is hard to believe that daughter Allegra will be a Senior at U-of-Hartford starting next week. A Ruby Tuesday reminiscence takes us back to September 1, 1993 and where it all began - Kindergarten.

Yes, she began her formal education all those years ago. Plenty of ruby in her first day of school outfit, a magenta skirt, and pink backpack.

Happy she was then to start and yet one year to go now. Memories are plentiful, and perfectly enhanced in ruby!

My little one starts Kindrgarten in two weeks - it is a very touching moment in a lifetime. Very pretty outfit!

Jim said...

Aww! She's soooooo cute! Is she still a blond?
Happy RT! I rated another restaurant, please come see.

Forgot to say, I was with my granddaughter today at our U of H, University of Houston.
She is a senior there with a business major.

One of the primary purposes of photography is to capture special memories. Well done. Have a great Ruby Tuesday.

Adorable ;--)
Looks like both you and Patty have been waxing nostalgic this week.
Hugs and blessings,

Patti said...

Yes, we are being nostalgic today. Back to school time brings that feeling.

Dear Ralph,
She is a rare beauty.
Long, curly, blond hair and the cute, but shy smile to break hundreds of hearts.
Bet you miss her a lot, when she's gone.
Only one thing would be worse; she not being able to get the educating she wants. (That's how I'm comforting myself.)
From Felisol
PS Can you tell me, where did they fly, the best years of our lives?

These are the kind of pictures that make us wonder "Where did all the years go?"
They're growing up as fast as we're growing old :P

She's a sweetheart in the old photo, Ralph! Bet she's still a sweetheart, right? Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Love the patterns in the skirt and the smile on the pretty face.
