I have truly been slacking on the blogging, because so much has happened in the past few weeks. You might notice a change in our blog header. We have added a new addition to our family. His name is Edisto and he is a two year old weimeraner!
Hollis has always wanted a weimeraner. We knew we didn’t have time for a puppy and we wanted to adopt an older dog instead, because there are so many older dogs that are in desperate need of homes! Frequently I would browse pet adoption agencies on the internet to see if any of the dogs caught my eye. Edisto seemed like a perfect candidate. (His name was Barclay but we changed the name). We drove up to Atlanta to meet him and brought him home the same day! He has a very sweet disposition and is extremely curious.
Izzie is a little peeved that we have brought another dog into her territory. She has been an only dog for 4 years and prefers cats over dogs, but I have been very proud of her behavior. She hasn’t acted out at all. I think she is warming up to him more and more every day.
We enjoy taking them both the dog park! Edisto jumps right in and plays with all of the other dogs but Izzie is a lot more shy, and I am hoping weekly trips to the dog park might make her more social.
Hollis went back to school this semester and has been enjoying his classes. He is getting a second bachelor degree in Computer Science. Augusta State University has already opened the door for a great opportunity as he is interning at Fort Gordon developing Android applications! I am really proud of how dedicated he has been in his studies and towards his internship. Although it really cuts back on our time together, I know it is for the greater good of our family and I am so glad he is doing something he loves!
I have a very busy month ahead of me both at work and my extracurricular activities. I have a conference at the end of the month and we are getting down to the wire for Junior League’s attic sale. I have really enjoyed my experience with Junior League and I have met so many wonderful women. I feel like we really make a difference in the community and I am so thankful to have the opportunity to serve Augusta!
