Jan, I do love those big dogs. Just my favorites. So quirky. I know, even the small ones are, but I'm partial to the big ones and I can't help it and I don't want to help it. Sorry, Bud, but you know how I feel!
My new director didn't start today as I thought she would. She had said she wanted to come today, so I thought she would, but there are so many things she needs to do before she can start, so I guess things didn't get done. Should still be this week, though.
Today was Mitchell's first day at the public school where they moved. He came home and told DD that this is the school he's been waiting for all his life.
He said he loved the math, the writing, his teacher and he really loved being able to ride the bus home. DD said she was so thrilled to hear how happy and excited he was that she cried. Even though he liked his preschool and the school he was just attending, he has never sounded as happy or excited as he did today. I talked to him and he told me the same thing.
I think it might be the structured nature of it, he has always responded well to a firm schedule, so maybe a nicely structured school is what he needs instead of one that allows more freedom.
Jan, no snow. It never got that cold. We did have rain all weekend and even some rain today, but the temps stayed up in the 40s. Too warm to snow. I like snow, but I do not want snow just yet. Far too early for that.
Now that the kids have a house, they want a dog. They are looking into a rescue and DD is willing to get almost anything, DSIL wants an adult, not a puppy. Mitchell just wants a dog again. It's been a couple of years since Wyatt passed away and they are all so ready for another dog. Mitchell wants a dog to sleep on his bed and just be his friend. DSIL wants a dog to be laid back and relaxed and I hope he's not looking for another Wyatt. That might not happen. DD just wants a dog. She understands how each dog has a unique personality and no one can predict how laid back or energetic a dog will really be.
