The return trip to Palm City was effectively launched around 10 a.m. The guinea pigs were cleaned out and loaded, Dylan had his book and his game thingy, and all was right with the world. We are left here Home Alone with bunches of memories. We'll most likely see them again at Christmas.
While she was here, Laurie cleaned out some of her boxes in the gray barn. She threw away a lot of "stuff", but she actually took her Dancerina doll home with her!
She found lots of ballet shoes, costumes and programs - all very nostalgic. I love this picture that she took before she packed everything away again:
