Parental Update-Swag

Looking down from heaven to tell everyone what is up with the folks.

Little had his birthday party today. It was at PopUps of Fun. In case you are not familiar with children's entertainment, PopUps of Fun is a place that has Bouncy houses and jumpy slides-all those inflatable things kids like to play in all in one place. Of course, all the kids loved it. The parents liked it too because the kids could play while the adults could visit.

This made mom think about how parties were back in the olden days when she was a kid. The rule used to be: However old you are that is how many kids you invite plus one. So if you are turning 4 you invite 5 kids if you are turning 7 you invite 8 kids. Simple right? Of course back in the olden days the only place kids went was school and scouts. The other rule was you didn't have a party every year. You had a party when you were 4, 8, 12 and 16. But, back in the olden days everyone had more kids so if it wasn't your birthday party year chances are it would be your brother's.

Anyway, Little had a good party and got lots of cool gifts. He likes toy guns so he got a lot of toy guns: pop guns, cap guns, nerf guns, space guns. He also got an easy bake oven because what's better than guns? CAKE!

Big did pretty good sharing the day with his brother. He is very excited that Monday is a holiday. He thought he was getting a day off from school because he had a great week last week. He is pretty sure any kid that got in trouble will have to go to school on Monday.

Jake and Luke were at the party, too. Jake thinks he has finally figured out something grown-up and bad to do now that he is 18. He is going to get a tatoo or a piercing. He also got to sign the permission for Luke to jump at PopUps of Fun. He was acting as Luke's guardian. How grown up.

Luke had the dreaded swine flu. He said he only felt sick for a day, but he had to stay out of school for the entire week. If he didn't have an actual doctor tell him it was the Swine Flu, mom would have thought it was sciencitis. You know, that illness kids get when they forget to do their homework. Well, whatever it is he is fine now.

Dad had to go to a big conference for his job. He is a social worker. He finds homes for people who may have been in institutions or for people whose families can no longer care for them. It is a good job in that he meets many people who are the salt of the earth, who truly give of themselves to people who are in need. So dad went to this big conference and he came back with a bag of presents. I know when movie stars go to award ceremonies they always get bags of gifts-swag it is called. The gifts that movie stars get are things like ipods and expensive jewelry and rich thick lotions and all kinds of luxuries.

Dad brought home a bag of pencils, a jar opener, a ruler, a bookmark, some hand sanitizer. What kind of world do we live in where movie stars come home with a bag full of ipods and social workers and teachers get chip clips with the name of the local mental health facility stamped them?

So that is all the news for the week. Mom and dad are both ok. I have been coming to mom in dreams telling her it is time for her to let me go because I am getting closer to finding them the right pup.

More reports next week.

Hey there g/f! It's so good to hear from you and hear what's going on with your humans. We sure miss you down here on earth, but the Bridge angels are soooo lucky having a sweet girl like you with them.

We sure are hoping your mom and dad's hearts are getting close to welcoming another pup into their family...it will be such a lucky dog!

Look forward to hearing more from you.

Luv,
Cassie-roll
