photostory friday - true blue

miss 11 and miss 12 are at intermediate this year (middle school). our middle school is only TWO years, and it goes INSANELY fast. the girls are in the same syndicate, which HAS presented some issues, but as the first term (semester) comes to an end (one week to go - wahoo!), they seem to be settling in.

early in the year, they have an athletics day. the girls' syndicate chose blue as their colour for the day; and the colour theme was embraced to say the least, ie they took a lot of scrubbing to get clean that night!
there's that face!!!
now there's a bod only a mother could love...
the teachers even had t-shirts printed!
miss 12 and her peeps
someone from the 'red' time giving it heaps in the long jump
thank heavens for cream cleanser is all i can say...

Ahhhh there's nothing like team spirit!

And it's always best to go blue -- red is the enemy (at least in these parts!)

well, thankfully the blue ARMS (and LEGS for that matter!) did NOT belong to anyone in my family! my girls really only painted their faces, and with 5 females in the family, makeup remover and cleanser is never far away...

Andrea said...

Krissy said...
