I came down to wake up The Girl this morning and found this on her door. One is a poster of a school cheer she made for a pep rally. The other is a “Welcome to the block ” picture her friend made her. The fact that she hung these warms my heart. Not only is she entering that golden time of life where you paper your walls with school spirit posters and Bop Magazine, but she’s clearly marking her territory in this new house, which can only mean one thing; we are home.
