This is the end of the innocence.

Mia rocked her last week of elementary school. She won another art show, got outstanding 5th grade band student, was the hit of the invention fair, and found out she gets to play Dorothy this summer in the Wizard of Oz. Not a bad way to go out. 

Unfortunately for her, she has middle school to look forward to. She doesn't yet know that middle school is the living worst. Fortunately, she doesn't have to change schools. Unfortunately, middle school will always be middle school.

For the most part, she's still a sweet little elementary kid. However, after two days of being home with me for summer break she declared it a "total fail" so she's starting to get there. 

For now, I will savor these sweet pictures of the end of life as we know it:
 Leave it to Mia to figure out how to never have to taste a vegetable again. Carbs are more her speed. (She once asked for fettuccini alfredo with a side of mashed potatoes for her birthday dinner.)
 Her sweet friend, Ava.
 She got to perform in a little Wizard preview last weekend. It was perfection.

In middle school I was exactly the same height I am today (so, basically, a 12-year-old behemoth) and was convinced that Kurt Cobain was the only person that understood me. Anything is better than that.
