Our adventure continues – we finally made the cross-country trip out here, but there are lots of balls in the air we’re still juggling. I’m just glad to have the moving part mostly over – we still have the U-Boxes from U-Haul to deal with, then everything will be on the same side of the country as we are – and at least when we buy a house out here, moving will seem like a cake-walk since it won’t be across 3000 miles.
There was a collective sigh of relief (from me) when I finally laid eyes on this sign on our last day of driving:
The kids are enjoying their new schools – and of course I have to do the traditional ‘First Day’ pics. You know, so I can reflect back on them when I’m old and senile and can’t figure out where I put those darn photo albums.
Princess Nagger started school a couple of days before Little Dude, decked out in her new duds and carrying her Portal 2 messenger bag and water bottle:
She’s growing up way too fast if you ask me. 5th Grade already!! She gets bussed to a different school than the local elementary, since she qualified for the Gifted Program out here, which is called “Highly Capable” instead of ‘gifted’. Interesting, no?
I kept snapping pictures as we were waiting for the bus, but she kept walking around trying to duck the lens and I only got one decent candid shot (one is better than none):
She finally started to get annoyed, though:
Alrighty then. Two days later it was Little Dude’s turn:
Of course it decided to rain in a big way that morning, so there was no paparazzi photo shoot going on – and in spite of the rain, Little Dude barely stood still long enough for the above shot, there was no way he was going to stand still for any more. I tried to get he and Princess Nagger to get a shot together – it was pretty comical – those I’ll share next week.

Looky! I made a button if you feel like snagging it and displaying it proudly:
