Alejandro and preparing to go back to school

Alejandro and his stuffed puppy:

I took the best photo that I could indoors. About fifteen minutes after I took that photo of Myfanwy the other day, it started POURING rain, and it has been for the past few days. I woke up this morning because an enormous thunder/lightening boom, in fact.

Back to school preparations are consuming the house right now, as some of us only have two more weeks before we begin. When do you start school? What's your favorite part about going back to school - I love all the fresh supplies! (I always get plain, light colored folders so that I can doodle on them!)

new dolls and old lovies

Everyone's talking about the new American Girl dolls, Marie-Grace and Cecile, and then how all American Girl dolls have a a special toy, plushie, lovey, etc (except that Marie-Grace and Cecile don't have them yet!) and then, what OUR special item is.

Aedon: Kit & Ruthie AG dolls
Xander: I've a plushie racoon
Ember: hmm, my Breyer horses, maybe
Myfanwy: my plush sheep, Carys
Llinos: a red plushie squirrel
Joy: a teddybear named Cookie
Riley: a JLY AG (#9)
Sara: plushie elephant
Mili: a stuffed unicorn
Alejandro: a stuffed puppy
Zora: a rewigged JLY to look like me!
Araminta: Addy

Maybe later on this weekend I could take photos of them with their lovies, even!

Niamh, Song, Poppy, Victoria, Sako, and Iona weren't around when I asked. I didn't list anything for myself, because I'm not really sure what mine would be or if I even have one!

Do you have anything like that? Are you planning to get Marie-Grace or Cecile?
