8th grade


I cannot believe my little Hannah is almost old enough to go to high school. Help!


Today is the 8th grade banquet. They will be taking a bus downtown for a fancy lunch and awards ceremony. Next week is the 8th grade promotion. I like that they call it promotion, rather than graduation, but I wish both activities were on the same day.


Hannah and I (mostly) had fun shopping for just the right dress. Finding something with sleeves, knee length, cute, and not too grown up was tricky, but I think we did okay.


Don't you think Hannah looks just adorable in her pink dress? I'm wondering what happened to the awkward years.... Would a couple years of frizzy hair and klutzy elbows be so bad?

I took several pictures this morning, but the low light and the slow shutter-speed made for some slightly fuzzy photos. bummer! will try again this afternoon.


Have a fun day, Hannah!

Hannah looks so cute! That dress is beautiful on her. Watching Hannah grow up, I have also wondered how she managed to skip the awkward phase too! Must take after me....oh wait, I believe I had the frizzy hair and bad skin and everything else awkward you could dream up!

Lovely dress! Pretty girl! You two did a good job of finding just the right dress. I hope my shopping trips with my girls go as well (but Mae tends to like frilly foo-foo things....soooo not my style, so it'll be interesting when we get to the point of shopping together!) :)

She looks so pretty in her dress and happy & confident too! I imagine it's hard thinking about her going to high school. After all, it hasn't been so long since we've been there, right? :)

The dress is perfect! Very fun, yet classy.

All the best to your soon-to-be graduated (or promoted?) girl :)

Hannah is beautiful! What a cute dress - great choice. To put this in perspective, Erin had just "graduated" from 8th grade when we moved down here just the other day - well 6 years ago - but time flies! Mom

"Finding something with sleeves, knee length, cute, and not too grown up ..." This is me and Fashionista next week, I hope we get as lucky like you girls did.
