Goodmorning! Enduring last week's icky weather brought a great reward. It was too soggy on Saturday for Andrew to work on the Outdoor Classroom Project (with his Leadership 21 class I mentioned before) so we got to spend the day together! Wade was ready to begin his day at 6:30am Saturday so we headed for Niedlov's for some yummy baked goods and coffee. And then it happened. It started to rain just as we headed for the car so we got into a hurry and didn't notice. Puppy. Puppy is gone. Not a real puppy. Wade's lovey. We have not really pushed the lovey concept too much (after seeing our nephew get EXTREMELY attached to a very ragged horsey) but Wade was starting to form a little attachment to Puppy. Once we got home we realized poor Puppy was probably lying in the parking lot getting rained on and perhaps even run over by a car. Tear. Sniff. No, we didn't go back to look for him. Unfortunately the rest of the day's events didn't really allow for it. So, now Wade is adjusting to a new blue puppy lovey. He's not quite as soft and cuddly but we're hoping he does the trick.
Ok, on to my menu for the week. This plan is pending the grocery shopping that needs to be squeezed in between Wade's two naps that have to be finished before 2:30pm, the first of which he has been fighting the last 30 minutes.
Monday: Crock Pot Chicken & Rice Casserole (w/ broccoli)
Tuesday: Swedish Meatballs (new recipe!), Mashed Potatoes and Cranberry Sauce
Wednesday: Four-Cheese Stuffed Shells, Green Beans & Crescent Rolls
Thursday: Parmesan Baked Salmon, Twice Baked Potatoes & Asparagus (depending on the price)
Friday: Spinach Pasta with Shrimp & more Crescent Rolls

And for persevering, here is a Wade snapshot for ya. Yesterday we bundled up and took Sam dog to the D-O-G P-A-R-K. Of course he didn't really interact with the other dogs, but he did pee on every tree in the entire park.
