This is the first day of school.
Squirrelly looking bunch huh?
Is there one missing you ask?
Why YES I answer...

I fixed her all up before we left.
She's always such a good sport.
She's very good at humoring me.


This would pretty much be Sofi's whole life.
In one pile,
On the curb,
and very, colorfully so.

Looked  like a lot bigger pile close up!

Moving was an adventure.
She looks pretty spent, right?
I know it looks like she needs a Dr.
But truly, she always looks like this...

Yes the Boy was there to help.
I hope she's more organized now.
I'm not there to help her you know.

Obviously the position of the lights is extremely important.
It's all about the ambiance...

Ah... The alert look of dorkdom...
Dry erase fridge...CHECK
Mini lanterns...CHECK
Pretty green desk chair...CHECK

I swear that ALL those (specific) items were on the list we received...

She's never spent a birthday without me.
I provided some essential college materials.
Yes those are coloring books.
She her excitement?

Success! All moved in.
Birthday present for the next day...
Dorky name tag...
And Wayne Wear.
She's official people!

Now back to the important things.
The first day of the last year of high school,
for the majority of my children.
Apparently this picture thing is SO uncool.
Who know??

It was a difficult morning...

Sir Fattington and Lord Vinegar are SO over the drama of it all...
When school starts so starts the Animal Vacation.

Sofi left Rubi with a little gift to remember her by.
We now have 1 dog, 1 cat and 6 fish.
If anyone is counting.

And now to the biggest news of all:

This is Daisy.
She's fabulous.
And she's a whole post in and of herself.
So next time we'll discuss Daisy.

P.S. Happy Birthday Mom!
