Back to school flashback.

Tim, Terry, Ken & Luke in school uniforms - Feb 1993
Tim, Terry, Ken & Luke in their school uniforms - February 1993.

This week thousands of Western Australian kids have gone back to school after the long Christmas break. By coincidence last week I came across a photo I took of our four eldest children, Luke, Ken, Terry and Tim about to do the same thing in February 1993. You can tell that Mambo hats must have been in fashion that year. Their younger sister Fiona would have been four at the time hadn't started school in 1993, but when she grew up she became a primary school teacher, and so she goes back to school this week as well. Our four sons in the photo all became successful plumbers.
