Now that School has returned to Western New York, my tradition of "1st day of school" margaritas will continue for the 11th straight year.

It all started back in 2010 when my son Avry went to kindergarten. I took the day off to be there to shoot lots of pictures and help my wife get our son off to school. Well, since school started at 8am, after he hopped on the bus, my wife and I didn't know what to do.

So we decided to have morning margaritas, and a tradition was born. Every year since my son Avry has started school, I take the day off and my wife and I enjoy our "Freedom" as Avry heads back to school.

This year it will be a little different. My son Avry is a Junior at Frontier High School, and this will be a new school for him since we moved to Hamburg over the summer.

The good news is that he plays soccer and made the Varsity team this year so for the past couple of weeks, he has been practicing and hanging out with his new teammates which means he will have some friends all ready to help him out in the first day of school.

As for the margaritas, this year Frontier along with most schools in Western New York will return to 5 days of in-person learning, which means 7:30 am margaritas. Of course, we will have to celebrate after the 1st day which means Mexican for dinner and another round of margaritas!

Here are some photos from over the past 10 years!
