First day of School

college bound

We gathered up lots of her belongings...

We rented a van and packed it full...

We got stuck in traffic and lost trying to find a certain building...and we waited in very, very long lines....hours long...
as of 7pm last night..........

She's moved in!!!!
I hardly had time to say good-bye before her new life whisked her away.
My precious daughter is on her own. Have the time of your life!
We love you!

We'll miss you ....
so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Flip-Flops

Don't peek if you are in the swap!

It's time for the flip-flop swap and here are mine. The flip-flops are made out of heavy white card stock and decorated with a variety of materials, fabric, ribbons, bits, vintage ticket stubs etc... The straps are velcro strips attached with tiny brads.

I'm excited to see what flip-flops get mailed back to me!

The Cone Comes Off Today!

For two weeks Bentley has had to wear a cone to protect his eyes. He was rubbing them so much against the rug that he got an infection. It was a loooooong two weeks with that cone.... and the whole house is celebrating now that it is off!!!
Here you can see Beemer holding court as Bentley tries to get in a few Z's!
