Furry Friends? Of course! I think most of you have met (through our friendly blogging world), my running buddy, but now I get to share a little bit more about him with Soaring through Second Grade's Linky Party! Woot woot!! Or should I say Ruff! Ruff! (Okay, that was too much, sorry!)
ScoutMy husband grew up with dogs, and while I never had them, my sister and I always asked for one growing up. The Mr. had been begging for a dog, and I kept saying no. I didn't want to clean up after it, pay for the vet, and have dog hair everywhere. A teaching friend of mine (Thanks, Krista!) told me one day that her uncle was giving away labs! YES! GIVING THEM AWAY! To pass up a free chocolate lab would be like passing up pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving! Not possible! So that's how I came to have a dog.

Lesson: use animals to help me teach!
This is my all time favorite picture of Scout. One of our good friends took this pic of Scout running on a frozen lake. Just beautiful.
Lesson: Don't forget how beautiful nature can be!
