Reader scrapbook

A group of girls gathered at the Waters family home for an end-of-summer party in May 2010 to celebrate the start of seventh grade, and the over-eager family pooch wanted in on it. “ ‘One, two, three’ was meant for the girls to know when the picture would be taken, but Tucker, our two-year-old lab, thought it meant for him to jump,” says Natalie Waters. From top, the girls are Mia White, Sarah Kneadler, Betsy Arlt, Marissa Parks, Hannah Waters (Natalie’s daughter) and Aja Silliman.
