Kayaking with the Dogs

I'm so far behind on blogging! I'll try to cover the rest of what we did while Ty David was here.
His eyes look so blue in this picture.

Getting ready to go eat with a family from church. The boys weren't ready yet. 

First time for the huskies to go kayaking.

The other dogs have done it at least twice before.

The huskies are a lapful! Snowflake looks a lot more relaxed than Rick does!

Travis loves it.

He likes to jump off and swim for shore.

This is a selfie I took while Jessica chased Snowflake who slip her harness.


Rick and I took Jasmine out a day early for her 10th adoption anniversary. Her adoption day was July 14, 2004. She was almost 3 1/2 by then. 

I bought her the necklace and watch she is wearing. I also bought her the shirt because hers had somehow gotten dirty while we were out. We hadn't originally planned to go out to eat this night (same day as the kayak trip), just buy the necklace. But once we decided to go to Chilis, we called Rick to meet us there, and I bought Jasmine a shirt to change into.

This is the next morning as she and Jessica were getting ready to take Ty to the airport.

Ready to go to the airport.

Unfortunately Jessica drove right by the airport without realizing it, and by time she did realize it and drove back, the plane had loaded.  He could have still gone, but it was too late for his luggage. There was another plane going to Atlanta  90 minutes later, so he took that. And then caught his flight to Nashville.

The Job Corp people drove down to pick all the kids up. It's a couple of hours, but I guess it's the best place for them to fly out of. There isn't much near them in KY.

Ty is doing really well at Job Corps. He's doing  his computer tech training, and he's the recreation room supervisor. He's also a leader in his bay. Job Corps has its problems, but it works for some kids. Especially kids that you aren't sure what to do with. Ty's smart enough, but couldn't handle the rigors of college. He wanted to go into the USAF but was turned down because of his aspergers. If you have a child like that, you might want to check out Job Corps.

Anyone else have kids who went to Job Corps?

Thankyou for posting about Job Corps. It is something for us to keep in mind.
