This was hanging on our door for a couple of days. I love the part about not playing on Sundays. So funny!!
These drawings are from a book about my family dog. Dudley was my parent's dog. Dudley loved my mom (and I think she secretly loved him:). When my dad remarried he decided to get rid of Dudley. My sister Ashley took him in and he became their family's dog. Anyway, he passed away a couple of weeks ago and this rocked Jane's world. She was so upset. She cried herself to sleep for a couple of nights. She felt robbed that she didn't get to hold him one last time. It was sad really.
This last one is from Monday night. Jane felt like she was getting in trouble a little more than usual and she felt it was time for her to go and find another family. So she began packing her bags and writing farewell notes. I asked her where she would go in such cold weather. She thought it through and decided to go somewhere close so she wouldn't get too cold. Then she decided that she wanted to go to a family that would take her to church. So after some thought, she came up with Courtney's family. He is in her 1st grade class and they are in the same primary class. So this was perfect. I suggested she call them first to make sure they could take care of her. She didn't want to do that. She just wanted to go. She kept saying "I have to go...sigh". Tobe was bawling. Aly was asking if she could have all her stuff that she couldn't fit in her backpack. It was quite a sight.
Here's her note.
She made it out the garage door and was back in less than 1 minute.
Apparently we're not doing too well on "bringing happiness" to each other. Huh!! We gotta work on that a little more. I am happy that she decided to stay. I informed her that no one would love her like her family loves her. She was ok with her decision to stay too:)
