Back to school time is here, and moms and dads everywhere are having all the feels. I know I am, as my youngest started junior high this year, and is now the exact same height as his mama! The beginning of a new school year is the perfect time to look back and how fast and how far your child has grown. One Washington dad, Kevin Scruggs, doesn’t have to look far to capture those memories: he interviewed his daughter on video on the first day of school every single year, from kindergarten to her last first day.
Now, that video archive, edited and compiled to just a few minutes, has gone and continues to go viral. Scruggs’ video of his daughter Madison’s first days has nearly a quarter million views on YouTube.
Scruggs, who made a similar video for his older daughter Mackenzie, told Good Morning America why he embarked on this project so many years ago.
“I thought it would be cool when they graduate to them to see their whole career in one short clip,”he said. “I wanted to have something to remember.”
