March Theme Day - Cafe Chairs

Holy smokes, another month down the drain and another City Daily Photo Theme Day upon us. Obviously "Cafe Chairs" won the vote. It's a bit brisk out so I opted to stay inside and shot CAFEteria chairs at Lord Botetourt High School.

My daughter Ashlyn graduated from this school last year and Christian is a sophomore here. I started working part time here when we moved from Georgia after spending many years as a stay at home mom. Works out perfectly, I don't have to head in until all my kidlets are in school and I get home before them. Not much left for me to do at home now that they are all in school! I miss the days of having them at home. Ok, enough reminiscing...check out cafe chairs from all over the world by visiting City Daily Photo!

  1. I stayed at home with my boys for ten years, then worked in the school cafeteria for 4 years before going to my current job. I loved working there because I had the same holidays they had and I was only away from home when they were....perfect job for a mom who loves to spend time with her kids!

  5. Nice shot. Some of our schools have these kind of "chairs," er, stools. Not comfortable!

  8. the hubby & i got to church dinners & they are held in the local elementary school & those tables sure are difficult for adults to use - i need to take a camera & video tape every one trying to get up - not just me but the elderly folks too. seems kind of silly. ( :

  10. Oh boy - high school lunch rooms - reminds me of some awkward moments. The shot of the red stools is awesome, and I loved the reminiscing - I miss my SAHM days...

  12. Love the CAFEteria chairs! First one I've seen today, and they are so much nicer than the ones I remember from youth, haha. Makes me somewhat nostalgic (my mom also spent some time as a SAHM when we were younger, also serving at our elementary school for a bit, then transitioned back to the workplace full time - it did work out for her nicely, she's past retirement age and still working:).

  14. Great photo...
    I wish my kids would slow down on the growing up! I enjoy the rare day when they are all home at once...
    Happy Theme day and have a lovely weekend..

  15. Smart idea to have the stools attached to the table so the kids can't scoot them all over the place! Nice shot.

  16. Haha...great take on theme day! These are the same kind of "cafe chairs" I see everyday at lunch. If only you could add the smell of square pizza and corn to your post, it would be perfect.

  21. That's exactly the kind of job I got when I started working. Our daughter was 10, and I worked part-time three days a week, and was home before she got home. It was perfect!

  22. I didn't realize you worked for the school system. Learn something new every day.

  25. Thanks for the memories! (Although the cafeteria of my youth wasn't nearly as bright and shiny as this one.)
