Cari and Amber got back last night from Burning Man. Apparently it is very dusty there so she just tosses all of their clothes into a Goodwill donation box somewhere in Nevada. Let that mess be the charity’s problem to deal with, and the poors will be the beneficiary of relatively nice clothing (she doesn’t bring anything really valuable to the playa).
She says Burning Man always reminds her about taking care of the earth and valuing our resources. Such an important message!
Amber and Starling were delighted to be together at school today. I am afraid this has been a rough week for Starling. I hope the school can get these other children to stop their bullying her about being a bully! I don’t know why they have separated her from her best friend.
Hummus had a wonderful first day of school I am sure. He was asleep when I picked him up, he slept straight through the night and was still asleep when we pulled back into the parking lot this morning. I poked him and handed him a toaster pastry. School time, lil’ buddy! He is wearing his Daniel Tiger underpants today. Let’s hope they get a little more respect than poor Elmo got yesterday. ;(
