• Orientation & First Days of School

    I don’t even think I wrote about the last days of school, or most of the summer… But… Moving on! So they say, the past is the past! Orientation was the Friday before school started.

Very easy to talk to… which I always look for. I don’t want it to be awkward with someone in your house so many hours a week. And she’s not all bad, the girls do seem to have…
