Category: - A Girl and her Dolls
 
What's decided, you may ask? Well, if you haven't read the post I just did the other day, click here and you might have a little bit of an idea.

Anyways, I found the perfect school for them. I wish I could go on homeschooling them, but I just don't have the time. The school I found is called the Mountainside View Academy for Dolls, or MVAD for short. I proposed the idea to the dolls....and they absolutely loved it! They said they would like to go on homeschooling, but my crammed scedule (which will be even more crammed now, since I got into a play I auditioned for) has been affecting their grades. And it's not their fault- they do everything they're supposed to , it's just we have less time to go over it.

So, today, we went down to meet their teacher.

It was increadiby surprising that Felicity was the first one down. I assume Thistle was posting on her blog about the exciting occasion, and maybe Lizzy was just so exctied that she was talking the whole time while getting ready, which slows even her down.

I think she looked very pretty with her hair down, but she said she wanted it back in a ponytail.

"I don't want anything fancy, because I'm not fancy," she explained to me. "I want the teacher to know me for who I am."

Picture
I helped her tie her shoes before I started on her hair. I was in the middle of the ponytail when Thistle came down.

Picture
Thistle held the blue ribbon that went with her outfit. I was surprised that her hair wasn't done up like it usually was, with a braid on each side tied in the back. She explained that it was getting kind-of messy, so she was wondering if I would redo it, and this time put the blue ribbon in it.

Picture
Lizzy finally came down, asking if I could do a Julie-style do for her. I put one braid in the front then tied back the rest of her hair, which she rather liked. Here's the picture of all of them, nervous to see their new teacher.

"What if she doesn't like me?" Lizzy kept saying.

"Lizzy, I don't think a teacher has ever not liked you," Felicity pointed out.

Thistle nodded in agreement. "Even though I came after you two were in school, Ms. Lily always talked about you," she said, referring to their retired teacher.

Here's the back of each of their hair. I'm so jealous of Lizzy's hair...it flows so nicely :)

We all walked to the school (it's hardly a block away, luckily). When we got there, the girls were increadibly surprised and extatic to find...

MS. LILY! She came out of retirement! I already knew about this, but I decided to keep it a secret from the girls... :)

Picture
Thistle was the first one to get to her. All three of the dolls tower over her, so Thistle had to bend down to hug her.

"Hello, girls," Miss Lily said. "I'm going to be one of your teachers!"

And, sadly, after that my camera died and it's charging right now.

But there weren't really any more photoworty moments after that, so you're not missing out on anything :)

However, I found out something that I didn't see on the school's website. It's a school that they live at. From Monday to Friday, they stay at the school, and after school on Friday, they come home.

The girls didn't seem to mind this, so I signed them up, and they start on Monday. They're packing right now.

Anyways, that's it for this post. Plus, I found out: the school lets you take pets there! Thank goodness, Thistle won't be separated from Braxus. But I think it's unfair that Thistle is the only one who has a pet, so I'm going to get Lizzy and Felicity each one, too! Shhhhhh! It's a surprise that only Thistle and I know about!!!
