Look out they come!

Paige's first day of middle school couldn't have been more wonderful! I will let the pictures do the talking...

first day10
It started off with a "Cougar Breakfast" for Paige and 16 of her closest friends. Look at how precious that table is! My friend, Kim, is so creative and doesn't leave a single detail out.

first day14
There were chocolate chip and blueberry muffins, fixings for parfaits, fruit, milk and OJ, but quite frankly, the girls were too excited to eat much. I think they look pretty darn cute for 6:15 a.m.

first day16
They giggled and talked and wondered who their teacher's were going to be, what team they were going to be on (Paige is on the BLUE ...YAY), and who was going to be in their classes. I am sure they had a few conversations about boys, but the moms and I weren't privy to those :)

first day24
They posed for some group shots while the mama/sisterazzi went NUTS with our cameras!!! Such sweet girls to allow us to be in their faces ALL.THE.TIME!

first day22
They sat with their besties and talked about how they are SOOOO glad to not be in elementary anymore (I didn't buy that for one minute, though).

first day21
They talked about hoping to not get lost in their new BIG school!

first day11
They shared the latest trends...

first day1
They started to look soooo grown up...

first day4
They struck a pose...

first day6
Waved at buses and passersby who honked their horns...

first day25
They took pics with lifelong friends...

first day26
They gave us a glimpse into their future...

first day27
They gathered for prayer...

first day28
We said our goodbyes to the days of wiping noses, drying eyes, tying shoelaces, helping with handwriting or sounding out words...

first day19
and we all said hello to a brand new phase in our sweet girls lives.

I hope and pray that God watches over these girls and helps them to make good choices, be kind to each other, learn all that they can, study hard, play harder, and never forget to cherish each moment!

What a great sendoff! Those girls are so adorable and looking so grown up, but sweet and silly with their poses too! Enjoy every single minute -- I know you will!

And have a fun weekend!

Oh my goodness, what a fabulous post. And what a super idea to host a breakfast for these girls the morning of their next big adventure. Lucky girls. Each picture is perfect.

That is such a sweet way to start middle school:) The boys would never go for it but I will tuck it away for when Miss Kate starts!!!! I will offer up a little prayer that Paige has a GREAT year. Will LOVES middle school (he is a year ahead of PAige).
