TAILS from McKee

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Hope you are having a terrific Monday. You know what Mondays mean for our family - it means we are packing the Woody Bus, heading out for a week of school visits. Mom is finishing the laundry, Dad is washing the bus windows, the security guard is making sure everything is secure and guarded, and Chloe is barking at the birds. I thought I would take a minute to tell you about our day at McKee last week.

Thursday we spent the day at McKee Elementary in Jackson County, KY. Since we had visited the other two schools in the county and had made so many new friends, we couldn't wait to visit McKee. Like Sand Gap and Tyner, everyone made us feel right at home. Students wore sunglasses, made signs, held up American flags, and even decorated their faces! It didn't feel like school day at all - more like a family reunion or a parade or something! Now that we have visited all three elementary schools in the county, we feel like we know everybody!

Like our visit at Cline, I had to take it easy due to my minor sports injury. I am feeling terrific, but my parents say I have to rest a few more weeks before I return to my usual schedule. So, even though I am traveling everywhere and saying Arff to everybody, my siblings are having to carry the load. I shouldn't have been lifting weights. I just really wanted to build up my muscles!!! Oh well, only a few more weeks of rest!

Speaking of carrying the load, a great big thanks to Ms. Elizabeth Norris of Jackson County for taking care of all our visits. Thanks to the librarians, the principals, the teachers, parents, and most of all the students! We can't wait to visit Jackson County again!

Dad just said the windows are clean so off we go again - this time our destination is Cynthiana! Have a great week! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
