Awkward Middle School

Brace yourself for one of the most awkward and uncomfortable pictures of all times.

Are you ready for it?

Are you sure?

100% absolutely, positively, super duper prepared?

Don't say I didn't warn you!


This gem was taken moments before our 8th grade dance. Here are some of my favorite awkward aspects:

-Claire and I sporting the universal sign of discomfort: the forearm grab across chest
-The fact that 50% of subjects have their eyes closed
-12-year-olds wearing high heels. 'Nuff said.
-Shawls all around!
-Awesome posing. Between Lydia's half-squat, Becca's half-turn and Melissa's sorority pose, we look good!
-And don't forget about poor William sitting criss-cross-apple-sauce on the ground. I'm pretty sure boys still have cooties in 8th grade.

But the really cool thing about 8th graders is that, despite all of the awkwardness, they still look pretty adorable!

Very cute!! Gotta love that age, it's all awkward. Thank goodness we only have to do it once!
