Many Things to Celebrate

In our house, we like to celebrate... even the normal everyday stuff.  We celebrated Valentine's Day (kind of - Daddy was sick), President's Day (a day off!) and National Love Your Puppy Day (my favorite).

We celebrated the nice break from Winter this week with 40 degree temps and sunny days!  The snow melted, so we don't have the nice soft landings when playing Frisbee, but it is nice to soak in that sun!  We celebrate that Ringo is getting old enough to sit still so we can brush him!

More importantly, we celebrated a huge milestone for Daddy.  He was recently recognized for 25 years of service at the Dakota County Library System.  25 years is a lot!  I don't even have enough toes to count that high!  We are so proud of him!

Mommy had a couple of Donate Life Ambassador events.  One was meeting fellow ambassadors at the regional office and hearing their stories.  The other was going to a high school and talking to two health classes.  She was very excited about it when she came home.  Both Mommy and Daddy were impressed with the students and how engaged they were.  We look forward to doing more of those talks in the future.

Our tribute to Ali fund raiser is still going, so it's not too late, if you would still like to donate.  We have received some very nice emails from people who knew Ali.  They thanked us for doing this project.  Here's a link, if you are interested.

Daddy has started his Spring semester in school.  He will have one more class after this one - then we will celebrate his graduation!  He has worked very hard!

Hoping for green grass soon!
