Happy 8th Birthday Jester

Jester is celebrating his 8th Birthday today. He's been a wonderful companion for our family for the past six years. Most of which he has spent taking a nap. Below is a picture from the litter mate party we had a few years ago. Jester is the one sitting up.

Back To School

I'm really getting to old for this.... or maybe it's back to school that makes me old. This year was hard because Savanna (my baby) started High School. Lauren is back at NMSU as a Junior this year. How did this happen? When did they get so old? When did I get so old?
We moved Lauren into her dorm/apartment over the weekend. When she started at NMSU I told her that IF she kept her scholarship, and IF she made good choices we'd let her live in the more expensive Chamisa apartments her Jr and Sr years. Well, she'd kept the scholarship and is being a "good girl" so here we are.... I can't believe she's starting her 3rd year. She and her best friend (since middle school) Annamae are rooming together in their little apartment on campus. They are both excited and happy to be out of the dorms.
 Our first stop was at the new bookstore on campus. Really beautiful inside and out. 
As you can see in the above picture the girls were less then happy to have their picture taken on the front steps.

Lauren before all their stuff was moved in.

My little High School Freshmen
The day I've been dreading all summer arrived today. Freshmen Jump Start Day. I went to school with her for the morning to go through her scheduled and meet all her teachers. Her teachers were all great, and I think she'll have a wonderful year, but I'm not ready for this.

Today is Raleigh's 1st Birthday! I love that he was born on 8/9/10.
He wore his "male stripper kit" and king crown to work today. We had a pineapple rum cake and the FedEx lady gave him a bag full of treats!
He's becoming such a big boy!
