A Day at Mary Todd

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Hope this finds you having a PAWS-atively perfect day! Once again, sorry I have been a bit slow in writing in my journal. You should see my "To-Do" list. It gets longer every day. We have been traveling, writing, and enjoying March Madness! Everyone knows how much Chloe and I love sports! I have also been a bit slow since we had some trouble with our email. By the way, if you tried emailing us and it was bounced back to you or you didn't receive a reply, send it over again!

Last Thursday our family spent the day at Mary Todd Elementary in Lexington. Mary Todd is located right off North Broadway and though nobody ever said for sure, I am certain it gets the name from Mary Todd, as in Mary Todd Lincoln, the wife of President Abe Lincoln. She was from Lexington, you know!

It was a perfect day! You could feel the energy in the building. For one thing, the Kentucky Wildcats were playing in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Almost everyone, including Chloe and me, had on their Wildcat blue! Unfortunately, the Wildcats lost - or came in second as we like to think. Even though we were sad, it didn't spoil our day. Nothing could have spoiled it! Everyone made us feel right at home! Ms. Campbell and Ms. Carroll (last photo) planned the perfect day and evening! We hope to see everyone at Mary Todd again soon!

I better say ARFF for now. Today is a busy day and I want to chop away at my list. Besdies, it is raining outside and it's a perfect day for a game of checkers or Old Maid. I will write later - promise! In the meantime, Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
