If this photo proves anything, it’s that this teenager and her dad are just as close as they were 13 years ago.

The photos depict a 5-year-old Brittany Gayler being walked to her first day of kindergarten by her father – and then again as an 18-year-old going to her last day of high school.

Brittany, who is a senior at Alvord High School in Alvord, Texas, says that it was a “bittersweet” moment that she’ll “remember forever.”

Her father, 38-year-old Jason Gayler, says that he was pretty choked up over the emotional flashback and the amount of praise that he received for his parenting skills on social media.

“It has been a bit shocking with a mix of happiness,’” Jason told TODAY about the overwhelming online response to the photo comparison. “It brings me great joy if we were able to help people think back to that time, even if just for a brief moment, and smile. I can hope one day when I’m old I can look back at this and smile!”
