Parents share back to school memories

For many, the first day of school photo is an annual tradition. Starting in Pre-K and continuing through high school, these images become treasured keepsakes for parents and family members (not to mention perfect fodder for 12th grade senior year book advertisements). With backpacks on and lunchboxes filled, Beaufort County kids returned to school this week excited to reunite with friends and start the year off fresh.
