....and they're off!!!

My girls went back to school yesterday
and I lost my helpers....with Carter and our
lab, Bodey, I really do count on the girls
helping a little everyday. But, they said
their first day of school went great and they
both really seem to like their teachers...
thank goodness!! Becca is in 8th grade this
year and is actually at the high school
since they consolidated the schools this year
it is now the junior high with 7th, 8th, and 9th.
Emily is now in 5th grade and at the
middle school which is now the intermediate
school with 4th, 5th, and 6th. Their were
quite a few glitches when we were signing
the girls up for school a couple of weeks ago
because of all the changes so hopefully all
has been worked out and it's smooth sailing!
Oh well, the girls are happy to be back with
their friends and as long as they're happy
then so am I!! Here are a couple photos that
I took of Becca and Emily in our front yard
before heading off to school yesterday morning.

And, a couple photos of Bodey looking oh so cute!
I haven't posted a photo of him in a
while so I just wanted to update that it has been
almost 2 months since he was driven to us from
a high kill shelter in Kentucky and he is doing
wonderfully!! One month after we had taken him
home he weighed 79 lbs. and as of last week he
is up to 87 lbs.!!! My mom even says that he has
a twinkle in his eye now that just wasn't there
before. Also, I just wanted to let you know that
we are no where near over feeding him, he is a
very BIG boy and the vet said that he could get
up to 90-100 lbs. We LOVE you Bodey boy!!

Alrighty, I think that's all for today.
Please make sure to check back tomorrow for
our Thoughts 2 Paper Blog Hop done Christmas
style!!! There will be prizes so you don't want to miss it!

Have a terrific Tuesday,
LOVES:) -Sarah
