monkey arrived in charlotte, north carolina! he told us he had such a delightful time with amanda and he looked quite tuckered. i told him we rise and shine here at 5:30am, so he was quick to ask for his accomodations. i wanted monkey to feel cozy here at cottage bethy, and all we had available were king beds - i was afraid poor monkey would get lost in the duvet! so instead, i made him up a little drawer. i know he has been treated like royalty on this venture, so i worried he would turn his nose up on this idea. but not our humble monkey. he hopped right in, rolled right over, said "sweet dreams," and he has been snoozing ever since. he is off to school with us tomorrow...see you then!
