TAILS from LeGrande

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Yet another busy week on the Woody Tour Calendar. We just spent the last four days at the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center for the Kentucky Craft Marketing Show. It is one of our favorite times of the year. It's like a homecoming! We get to see all our friends, look at beautiful art, and taste DEE-LISH Kentucky made food! The show was terrific, but after it was over, our family was dog tired! Anyway, enough about that. I have to tell you about one of the best school days ever!

Last week our family spent the day and evening at LeGrande Elementary in Hart County. We were so happy to finally make it to the school. Our first day was cancelled because of the ice storm. Then our make up day was cancelled due to the ice storm. Thankfully our make up day for the make up day went off without a hitch! I was afraid we would have a tsunami or a volcano erupt or something else that would force us to have to postpone. Mom told us not to worry. She said volcanoes, hurricanes, or wild horses couldn't keep us away! It was definitely worth the wait.

LeGrande Elementary has students from Preschool up to the 8th grade. We saw all ages and sizes of students! We met lots of peopele - CAT fans, Cardinal fans (which were out numbered by the way) and even students with nicknames like NAILS. NAILS said he got the nickname because he was "tough as nails." I think I need a nickname - maybe PAWS or something. Woodster has a cool ring to it too.

Not only did I meet people, we were showered with gifts. Ms. Northcutt (the media specialist - third photo) gave us presents. My favorite present came from Ms. Northcutt's mother, Ms. Damron. Ms. Damron is the media specialist at Prestonsburg Elementary. While we were at that school, I fell in love with this bear. That bear was so big - and it belonged to the school so I had to leave it there. I really missed it! Ms. Damron sent me a belated Christmas present! It was my very own bear! You can see how much I love it! I have been carrying it around EVERYWHERE! It's a little harder carrying it around now since one of the ears is well, nevermind. The bear is my new best friend! I sleep with it every night. It keeps the lions and tigers away!!!

Dad took great photos at the school. He took over 100! My diary will only let me show you five or so. Here are a few of my favorites like the one of Frannie being held by a student. We also love the one of Ms. Spillman (the media assistant) and Chloe. The CAT and Card picture speaks for itself!

We will add more to the picture page soon. We had gotten behind with that but are trying to catch up! Also, check the site in a few days for our first ever clothing line!!! My very own sweatshirts and tee-shirts!

I better say ARFF! It just turned 9:00 and I have chores to do. Chloe and Frannie are helping Mom with the laundry. Wally and I are going to help Dad pick up sticks in the yard. Thankfully the sun is shining! Wally and I get the tough chores since we are guys! (Don't tell our sisters that.)

Have a great day! Enjoy the sunshine, work hard at your chores, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
