First day of school - Savananh

First day of 8th grade for Savannah, could not get her to dress up. I can't believe it's her last year as a middle schooler.

It was still darkish when she got ready to leave, so pictures are not the best. But at this point in the game I will take what I can get.
And the "true" side of her.......texting (Dalton, her boyfriend) at 6:50am!
