THIS BOY STARTED SCHOOL THIS WEEK:
And I am struck by how happy and relaxed he was for the very rushed “first day of school” photos we took with just seconds to spare. Doesn’t he look like a kid who is having some fun? He was nervous, but in a normal way.
When I compare to last year’s first day of school photo and how tense he looked once again the decision to change schools was affirmed. I thank God for continuing to leave no doubt in our minds that we did the right thing by changing his school situation.
THAT FIRE IS STILL BURNING:
We are still on high alert from the fire. It grew from under 1000 acres yesterday morning to 10,000 acres by yesterday afternoon. It is producing lots of smoke, and traveling our direction. Here is an article that will give information from late last night and a photo of the terrain it is consuming.
0% contained is not particularly encouraging, and today is another Red Flag Warning day in South West Montana.
Lots of praying is going on.
The smoke has us indoors as much as possible. But not Tank! He’s all for playing outside in the smoke.
That basket ball is his favorite thing. He tried to sneak it into his kennel the other night, but we got wise to his ways and put it back outside where it belongs.
Just in case the fire isn’t producing enough particulate matter in our air, Tank felt it was a good idea to kick up a little dust.
Gotta love a joyful dog!
By the way, while Tank was playing like that Leo was sitting wondering to himself where all that energy comes from.
