I was just going with Vickie for
a drive. I like to sit in the car and I am
happy to go with her, even if we don't get
to stop and play.
I thought Wednesday was going to
just be a "Ride Along" day but
after getting some supplies for the
kennel, we decided to see if we could
find a different way to get to the lake.
We drove around for a while and finally
found a trail that came to this rickety
old bridge thing. We crossed the bridge
carefully and then made our way to the lake.
The pelicans are migrating now and there
were about 100 of them just bobbing
up and down in the lake.
One day we will show you the lake,
it is on the other side of this hill,
but we didn't get any good pictures of it
today cause I was busy swimming
and Vickie was busy fighting off
the gnats. It was so pretty though, that
she didn't mind it much.
Seems there are a lot of little flying insects
this year. Or maybe it was because
we were standing by a bunch of dead fish
drying in the sun.
Thursday we were off to the school
so the kids could read to me.
we were greeted by all this really cool
chalk artwork the kids had done.
Vickie says when she was young
the principal would have a fit if they
did chalk drawings all over the school,
but this principal encouraged it.
I tried helping Andrea with her
words, but it was pretty exhausting so
I just closed my eyes and fell asleep.
Today while we were there, the head of
United Way came and gave me and Vickie
a special Tutor pin to wear. They told me
I was doing a great job.
They put my pin on a cool bandanna that they
made just for me. Well, they made Toby one
too. Isn't that so neat. I am a Tutor.
Now you may think that I would
have to keep my eyes on the book all
the time, but what is important is that
I make myself completely available
for the child to pet me while reading.
So if I should fall asleep
It is really ok.
I really have it tough,
