i can still remember them from 8th grade, jump jumping on a trampoline

in particularly coordinated outfits and even Katie’s polar bear with porcupine needles in its nose on ice (a sixth grade comment. i’d tell you what it means, but then i’d have to kill you…confidentiality clause and such) and all the various, um, stuffed but very important animals that accompanied many of them on sleep overs :)

Rachel, Katherine, Katie, me, and Amy.

They’re all grown up. I was impressed with who they were in junior high and i am impressed still with who they are continuing to become, each very unique in their own beautiful way!
