First Day of Middle School for Zoe!

In East Wenatchee Washington there a few things that are different.

Lots of sunshine and apples and...

5th grade is Middle School

My Zoe is now in the 5th grade so we had to make the emotionally trying transition into Middle School.

Ever the fashionista she put together this "fun, funky, fashionable" (her words)
 outfit from her school clothes.

We also did our hair the same so we could think about eachother throughout the day.

Here she is with her school in the background.

Her first locker.
This was a huge source of anxiety for her and for me.
The first time she tried it she could get the combination without a problem but she wasn't physically strong enough to life the latch.  What can you do about that?  Have her lift weights?  We were all very concerned.  Thankfully her locker partner is buff.

1st period.

Zoe and Fatima.

Zoe is growing up so fast.  She is becoming so responsible and she has handled this new scary adventure called Middle School with so much grace and maturity.  I am so proud of her and so thankful to have her in my life.
