Focus on Fur babies!

So it has been a crazy month- ok a crazy summer- but within the past month I traveled to Oregon and back, co-taught a week-long Smartboard class with Marsha, threw together my Pinterest-crazed classroom, started a new school year with 50 new fifth graders, went camping in Minnesota, and adopted a new puppy.  Are we crazy?  Yes we are.

You already heard about Portland, and if not- click here.  I hope to write a post soon about Smartboard stuff  and the start of the school year, but for now, let's focus on fun.  Last weekend we drove up to Sakatah Lake State Park in Minnesota to camp with friends and family.  We had a great time!  It has been so long since we had gone camping!  We took Bailey of course, who was able to reunite with his first love and soul sister, Daisy.

As some of you know, we were saddened to find out that Bailey's removed tumor was considered cancerous. :( We will have to wait it out to see if the cancer returns, but until then we are choosing to think positive and focus on the future! He has recovered from his surgery and is back to running the trails every night, playing with his cousins Spike and Sanchi almost everyday, and is getting regular dose of being a ridiculously spoiled and pampered dog.  Can you tell?

After our camping trip we had an unexpected turn of events, and her name is Ginger!  An opportunity fell into our laps and we fell in love with this little lady!  We welcomed her with open arms into our family, although it was much sooner than I thought we would be ready to welcome another pet into our lives after our loss this summer. But I am happy she is here, and I am in love.
All tuckered out... 
Pretty girl!
Bailey just looks thrilled. 

Welcome Ginger!!!
