I was looking at awkward family school photos and thought about mine. No awkward one but here is me in 4th grade in Chicago.

How fun! Here I am at age 7. I remember I wanted my hair to flip outward so much that year but it always wanted (still does) to curve inward on the bottom.

This is my 3rd grade photo from 1972.
Wow-what a mess I was!
It's cropped out of this photo, but I was wearing an 18k gold cross that Grandma gave me.
My love for jewelry started early!

All school pics taken before that were thrown in the trash ... don't ask ... long story. :roll:

I am sure your parents know much better than I but your face seems older than 6, more like 9-10, in my opinion.

It's the features and the pose that makes it look more matured than 6 years old.

I agree. I look pretty prim and proper there, but I am 6 in the photo. Wish I had more to share, but they are at my parents house. :angel:

Mine got tossed out as well, but that's because I looked like Pugsly from the Addams family but with dark features and hated my school pics :lol:

As an adult, I take horrible pictures, I mean downright awful. I have only 1 photo that I like of myself as an adult.

So this one is a true gem to me, as it is not only cute (to me) but it also includes my brother.

My dh's first grade school photo. He was no angel. :halo:

Sorry I cannot figure out how to post the pic other than in a pdf and IDK why it is sideways either.

Mine, taken at age eight, I think, so around 1992. I have no idea what was going on with my tie.

And for those of you who think you're old... Here's my dad's! His was taken sometime in the 1940s!

ETA: I have no idea why the photos are sideways.

Bumping this thread because I would love to see more pics of little PSers. :appl:
And also because a former classmate just posted our grade 3 class photo on FB so sharing it here. I wonder if any PSers can find me here. :cheeky:

Are you the little girl in the center with your hands clasped on your lap? Red nylons...?

I think we may be close in age, Missy because we wore the same style clothing. It's hilarious but sweet, too!

Haha yes that's me baby nurse. Very good! I would love to see a grade school pic of you if you want to share. I loved the style then.
I'm 50 now. In this picture I am 8 or 9 years old.

My hair was stick straight back then. In my 20s it somehow got all curly. No clue why but oh I enjoy looking through old pics. :bigsmile:

Not a school photo.

And not a good hair day! More interested in being out and about than washing my hair! :lol:

But don't worry, as an adult I wouldn't take the kids to the park without putting on lipstick! :D
