Title: Friday Fun
These terrific girls are all brand new middle schoolers. They have really enjoyed heading to middle school with their oversized backpacks and enjoy getting acquainted with all things 6th grade. It was a half-day Friday, so they all hopped in the car excited to enjoy what felt like a summer day with lots of swimming, pizza, and smiles. Photo (L-R): Presley, Ally, Addison, Maia, Ava S. Iselin, and Ava D.
