It was a sad day for us Riplets last week when Addison graduated from "college" (aka: CAP). She finished up her classes with her favorite college kids and seemed a little sad about leaving. Okay, so maybe she wasn't as sad as mommy and the students were to see her go. I was a little misty-eyed that day myself, but only because I really wanted to get all of the fun stuff she got when she left!
All three of us were attending college together up until March, so as a surprise mommy decided to let Jordan skip his usual school from home and go for a visit on Addie's last day. Let me just say, boy was he excited to get back there and see his people. I say "his people" because he literally has a fan club. I'm only assuming my last day at college will bring out sobs from the college kids because I can already tell I am their absolute favorite. I'm sure they won't ever admit this to me, but its pretty obvious those college girls are smitten by me and my strong pitching arm and boyish charm.
Anyways- back to Addison and her last day. Over the time Addie was at CAP, she spent most of her days swooning over Elmo and eating a lot of Dum Dum's. Along the way though, she seemed to really grow tight with one of her teachers and we're all pretty sure she thinks of him as her first real boyfriend. Lucky for her, he seemed to feel the same way and boy did he spoil her rotten when it was time to leave! She got a huge (think life size) Elmo balloon, Sesame Street coloring books, bubbles, a huge bag of Dum Dum's, Sunglasses, an Elmo book, an Elmo doll and her all-time favorite Elmo DVD. All I have to say is boy I'm glad I live with her because whenever she's not looking I get to use it all, too.
