Morning Fun, Checking Out the Creek and an Evening at the SPCA

It rained last night and was still too wet outside this morning to go out and play but we had lots of fun inside.

After the little ones went to sleep Michael and I took a walk down to the creek (Austin and Amanda stayed in the house) to see how it looked after all this rain and melted snow.

This was Amanda's evening to go to the SPCA to work with the animals there. She worked with one dog on finding treats in a puzzle. The dog actually has to move little sliding pieces to find the treats hidden inside. Then she worked with a second dog on learning to sit and wait for a treat. There was also another dog she spent some time with that was a new arrival to the shelter and was scared. She just spent some time with that one in it's kennel, trying to help it settle in a little. It seemed to be hungry but would only eat if she hand fed it. Somehow I didn't get a picture of that one though.

And that's just a few little glimpses into our day. 


  1. I love when little ones sit there with a book in lap, staring at the pictures.

  2. Amanda does so much good, thoughtful work with the SPCA. She really seems to have a knack for working with the animals. Bless her heart.
