Mom and I jokingly said "Who is going to buy Charlotte clothes when Esther leaves?" Charlotte started laughing with us and then took a look at her outfit:
- Shoes, from Esther
- Pants, picked out by Esther
- Shirt, from Esther
We had a going away party on Saturday so friends and family could say goodbye to Est. Shanna and I (with lots of help on my side from Mom and Esther) did the planning. One of the ideas that came out of the many emails was to create a photo booth. Shanna got a Polaroid camera and I set to work on making some props. I didn't want to be too trendy by sticking to the mustache theme, but I didn't have any other ideas. I'll tell you what, fake mustaches are a ton of fun. Be trendy! Embrace the trend! It was super fun. Here is some of the craziness that followed...
I wish I would have taken a digital picture of every person that was in the photo booth, but it just didn't happen. We used a polaroid for the main pictures and digitals were secondary. There were some pretty hilarious pictures.
On Sunday, the soccer league that Esther has been a part of for years threw her a going away game.
Due to many knee problems, Esther was not able to play in the game, but she was a great spectator!
After speeches and photos the game began. It was unusually hot for an October afternoon and I was exhausted from the previous night. I admit that I left at halftime, but I'm sure the game was very interesting and exciting.
Esther, I promise to keep you updated on Cameron's progress. I promise to organize Skype conversations and face time. I promise to lovingly care for your 42" tv. I promise to not send you too many emails since you never respond anyway. I promise to let you know what I'm "obsessed" with because "it's the best thing ever." Pinky swear.
