Photo of the Week: Back to School

You may have noticed there was no Photo of the Week for last week. We were undergoing a major behind-the-scenes upgrade to the Carter website and didn't want to lose any blog posts! I'll make it up to you this week with a super-sized Photo of the Week with extra images, celebrating the first week of school here in Fort Worth!

All the following photos depict schools and students here in Texas:
