Back to Bible Study

We headed back to Bible Study and Ashley was so excited to go back to class with her teacher, Dr. Bill.  Colin had no idea what was going on but he seemed excited until he got to his classroom door.  That's when the death-grip set in and the tears started to fall.  I peeled him off and handed him over while watching him scream and arch his back with his arms stretched out towards me.  Talk about pulling on a mom's heart, ugh.  I never went through this with Ashley but I knew he had to just get over it and that he was with wonderful teachers that would love him to death.  It took a few weeks but now he's happy to walk through the little door to his class, friends and teachers.  It's been so fun having two kids in class, I now get two art projects to hang on the fridge each week!  Here are a few pictures from the first day :-)

Mutt Mingle

When we got home from Ashley's soccer game there was Hauser.  He had been home alone for half the day and was the perfect dog that he usually is.  So, I told Jason we needed to take him to the Mutt Mingle so he could feel special.  When I asked him if he wanted to go to the puppy party his butt started shaking and he was ready to bolt out the door.  When we got there we saw our Bulldog friend Bentley that we met on a walk when he was a puppy 8 months ago.  Hauser had fun meeting all of the doggies, especially the Great Danes- they were his favorite.  The event was literally the dog version of The Taste of Ladera, they had dog treat bars, a lady drawing charicatures of the dogs, games for the dogs to play and win prizes, agility courses and lots of vendors handing out samples and prizes.  After we Mingled with the vendors we decided to let Hauser really mingle with the mutts in the dog park.  He had a grand old time running around with the dogs and it was fun to watch so many dogs play together so nicely.

Hauser made lots of friends

Bathtime Babes

I love washing these happy faces at bath time.  It's their favorite time of day, which means it's also my favorite time of day.  They splash, giggle and make bubble beards (it's so funny to watch Colin try to lick it off his chin).  Ashley is the master bubble hair shaper and Colin is the king of splashing.
