We picked up Rufus last night. I was so glad he had finally arrived. I took him to school today and showed him to all my friends, everyone thought he was great. Zac even danced the disco with him!

Rufus went to Spanish with me today and we did a fun activity. After school, we went to the orthodontist and got a new impression of our teeth. Rufus thought this was fun. Then we went to Grandma's and Rufus and I first pulled weeds until Rufus got bored, and then we played basketball. Then back home and to bed to be able to start our new day tomorrow. Mom checked our sugar at 2 a.m. and we were 365… big correction!

I went on a field trip to a nature center and because Rufus didn't bring a coat, he went to work with my mom. He sat in the barber chair next to her all day while she worked. Then we went to Grand Haven. Mom had to do more hair cuts. Rufus, Alex, and I played. And we went to the beach - the water is really cold!

Today, Rufus and I went to see Bruce Almighty and then to the White Caps game, and watched fireworks afterward. Rufus thought they were great. He told us he had never seen fireworks before. But it was a very late night and we were exhausted.

Today was my Mom's birthday. We saw the movie Holes and went to the Olive Garden for lunch. I was so tired that I (Rufus) slept most of the day.

We went back to the orthodontist to get my new retainer. Everyone thought I was so cute!
