One of my kids' favorite grown-up friends is coming over in a little while to spend the day with us. She has the day off from work, and my kids have the day off from school, so she's coming over with her beagle, AJ, and we're going to introduce him to Jack and hang out for the day.
My kids L-O-V-E Heather. She and her husband babysat for us awhile back, and Abbey asked me later that night as I was tucking her if if Heather and Jesse could be her parents. Every Sunday at church, they each try to be the first to spot Heather, and the minute church is over, they run and attack her with a massive hug. Yep...they love her. And I kinda think she loves them too.
One of the (many) reasons my kids love Heather is because she has a dog. A couple times this summer, we had church at the park and Heather and Jesse brought their dogs with them (I love that we had dogs in our worship service). But, being the most unobservant person on the planet, and admittedly, not a dog lover, I didn't realize that AJ was a beagle. And I still didn't realize it when they brought him over when they babysat. It's actually scary how much stuff slips past me. When my kids mobbed Heather and Jesse to tell them about Jack, she reminded me she had a beagle too, and that we needed to have a puppy playdate! So, today's the day.
There is much excitement around here in anticipation of their arrival! I'm actually a tad bit nervous about Jack because he seems a little agressive with the dogs in our neighborhood...so we'll see how it goes. I'm thinking I can separate them and send one outside to play in the snow if I need to!
