Just a few more pics of our herd...

Yes she is huge! I swear there is a tumor in there. But it might be due to the fact that Coop eats a snack in his bed every night and last week I caught her in there in the am cleaning up the left overs from the previous nights snack!! Guess we have not need for a garbage disposal! That would be Bailey the dogosal!!!

Fashion Show

This is why I do what I do. When I taught at Madonna, I had many moments where I could stop and think this is why I do what I do. I have not had as many with my new job, but Saturday was one of the best by far! I am now on the administrator side of things, so I spend many hours dealing with staff and not as much with the clients. I am happy though that this week I should be spending most of my time in the houses and with my clients! Anyway Saturday we had a Family meeting and Fashion Show. Our exec director is leaving so we had a farewell day! These are pics of some of my clients that I work with. It was such a wonderful day. They were so stinkin cute! They did a great job and I was so proud of them. Like I said it was one of those moments, when I could stop and say this makes all the headaches worth it!

Miss Diva, I asked her if I could take a pic, she did a turn and put her hand on her hip! It was hysterical!!

I know we are not suppose to have favorites, but a teacher would be lieing if she said she didn't. This is one of two favs. She is nonverbal and deaf. She can be very feisty, but I love her hands down! She is an incredible sewer, she can make anything. She also makes little bags and sales them for $3. Of course I have a few!

Second fav is in this pic, I love the guy to the right of me! He has an amazing story on how he ended up with WTFS, he was homeless, an alc0holic, and married. Now he is so stable and such a great guy!

ITS A......


HA!! HA!!! We have a new member of the Shannon team..her name is Madge. She is 5 months old and officially Coops dog. She sleeps in his room and he walks her everyday! Madge, where in the world did that come from...hmm...Thomas the Trains of course!

No they do not really look alike but Coop relates everything to a train!
She has been here for fours days and we love her. She is very sweet! She is hyper which Coop and Beau are loving! Believe it or not Bailey actually likes her!
Now we officially have three dogs, a turtle, a fish, 2 adults, and 1 little boy all living in 1300 sqft! Next on the list a bigger house!
