Social media can be toxic and negative for a lot of reasons. However, I love that people use it to capture important milestones in their families lives... like first day of school photos.

First day of school photos have been around for a long time. The one above is circa 1993 on my first day of kindergarten. Notice my shoes matched my skirt which matched my scrunchie. Man, I had it GOING ON in those days.

With Instagram and Facebook, people document their kid's first day of school in such clever ways with signs and witty captions. It's awesome!

Here are some of my favorite first day of school photos on Instagram:

and I just thought this was funny!
