Bentley and the Bee

This week we watched our friend's, Jim and Emily's dog.  Bentley was a playmate for Chula for the week, and although very different, got along great.  Emily had the opportunity to donate stem cells for a cancer patient who needed a transplant.  We were happy to help, and were sad (especially Chula) to see him go home.  

I was in a staff spelling bee for my district of 88 schools.  About 55 schools were represented with teams of 5.  It was a spelling bee to raise scholarships for seniors, and it was no joke.  We bought into the competition, designed t-shirts, and could buy back into the first 5 rounds for $5 per round.  The words were outrageously difficult (i.e. dossier, anacaphagia,  ichnolite, etc...) A team of 5 of us competed against other staff and tied for third place.  I should mention that about 50 other schools went out at the same time and two schools remained to compete for 1stt & 2nd places.  We had a fun time, although short-lived at that. 

More soon...love, us

Hi John and Kristin,

What cute pictures of Chula and Bentley!!!! Thanks so much for taking care of Bentley while Emily and Jim were in Michigan. I know they were concerned about your sanity...and Chula! Glad to know everyone survived.
