Hurry up. Let's go.


you're gonna miss the bus.




Come on. Let's go!

Cutting it close. And on the

first day of school, no less.

I had to get out

there and draw.

Everything was just

so beautiful this morning.


Hey, hey, hey.

How's my fourth grader?

Morning, Dad.

You excited?

Totally. Tessa just got

back from music camp,

and I can't wait to see her.

Do you know this

is the first summer

we haven't spent

every single day together?

Do you know this is about

the hundredth time

I've heard you say that?

And I know you're

also excited about

all the cool things you're going

to learn this year, right?

That too.

Hey, I want you

to check this out.

They're almost done sewing

the fabric for the balloon.

It's gonna be ready just in

time to fly at the Fiesta.

It looks amazing!

I can't believe my design

is actually going to be

turned into a real balloon.

I mean, just imagine what it's

gonna look like at the Fiesta.

The sky's gonna be filled with

all these hot-air balloons.

Yours is gonna be up there

with us inside of it.

That's pretty cool, huh?


To my very talented daughter.

I don't mean to break

up your little brunch,

but this artist is on the

verge of missing the bus.

I'm on it.

We'll see you at

Mimi's for dinner?

Okay! Bye!


Crazy. The show...

Oh, that song!

It was so hard to learn.

I know.

Oh, I missed you so much! Jinx!

Okay, you first. How was camp?

It was beyond!

It was more than beyond!

They'd have to invent a new

word for how beyond it was!

She's right. I learned all

these cool vocal warm-ups

and met other girls who love

music just as much as I do.

Totally changed my life.

Oh! You know Dylan, right?

She was in Mrs. Martin's

class last year.

We were in

the same cabin at camp.

She's an incredible singer.

Oh, yeah. Hi.

Hey! You're the artiste, right?

That's pretty cool.

Um, yeah. Thanks.

So, how was your summer?

I feel like we haven't

talked in forever!

Um, it was fun. I painted a...

Speaking of fun,

Tessa and I did this crazy duet

at the end-of-summer talent show.

Let's do it!

One, two, three, four!

Don't let them tell you

that you dream too much.

Don't let them tell you

that the world's too rough.

They should be making time

to have some fun.

'Cause we do,

'cause we do, 'cause we do.

Clearly, we totally rocked

the house with that song.

Yeah, that was...

First place, baby.

It was amazing.

You're a crazy girl.

Good morning, class. Everyone,

please take your seats.

I'm Mrs. Applegate.

Everyone, this is Gabi Pea.

She just moved here from South Albuquerque.

Let's welcome her.

Hi, Gabi.

Go ahead and take a seat.


You're Saige, right?

Yeah. Have we met before?

No, but I moved in just a

few doors down from you.

I've seen you in your yard, drawing.

I'm kind of an artist, too.

I design my own clothes.

And I drew these.

They're cool.

Not as cool as your

grandmother's stuff though.

My mom told me

she's Mimi Copeland.

Yep. She's pretty awesome.

At my old school,

my art teacher took us

to see her exhibit

at the art museum.

And I've seen her every year,

leading the parade at the

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

You're so lucky to have a

famous artist in your family.

I'm actually going

to her house today.

You should come over

and meet her some time.

I'd love to.

So, let's get started. We are

going to have a fantastic year.

I've got lots of very

exciting activities planned.

But before we get into that,

there are just a few things

I need to announce,
