Owen was spectacular, he slept on his mat the whole time I was with kids and tagged along with me when we were done with centers. I have to admit though; most of the time I prefer having my kids in the classroom to doing center-based learning days. I am excited to have Owen in my classroom with me at Sunday School where we can take things at our own pace (which is slow because I teach the little ones) and where I can work with Owen to be with me at work and help me, instead of putting him in a down-stay in the corner because I don't trust him not to get trampled - which he almost did until Darcie moved him! Yikes!
On our way home, Owen and I had to run a quick errand (picking up stamps - which unfortunately, I still need more... but I digress). He was a rock star in the store, and we were able to accomplish the task quickly without me feeling like it would be quicker without him (which is what I was feeling at the start of the week about some errands).

Toby almost played with Owen today; he was racing back and forth in the apartment and hiding in his cat furniture while Owen looked on. Then Owen would get up, perk his ears, and trot over to where Toby is. Toby would stop playing for a while and look unsure. And then repeat. They were so close to playing that they both got fired up so Owen started furiously chewing on a bone and Toby came over to attack me. Oy. They need to figure out how to play together soon. Afterwards this is what we did for the rest of the night.
Work. What work?
