    Friday, September 14, 2012

    Bo made it safe and sound to Maryland. The kids were all so very excited to see him and what was in his box. Bo got to play with Josi, Ayden, Keanna, Ryan, Nicholas and Noah. Noah gave him hugs bye bye since he will be going to a new school on Monday. I heard we are going to have a teddy bear picnic one day with more friends. I also heard we are going to find some fun Maryland souvenirs to take home to West Virginia. As i jot these final thoughts we say good night to Bo.

    Saturday and Sunday, September 15 & 16, 2012

    Bo got to spend the day with Zachary and Brayden. He especially loved to cuddle up with Zachary while he napped.

    we went to the Coast Guard base Curtis Bay in Baltimore MD. Mrs Trish got souvenirs for me along with a traveling companion. We also visited the medical clinic. Mr Kowalski was really sick, so Mrs Trish and Nicholas played in the waiting room.

    Bo arrived on Thursday afternoon. The kids were very excited when they woke from their nap and found a box to open. Bo was very glad that his travel had ended and he could get out and stretch. It was no time that the kids were all welcoming him. He has had a fun week.

    I met the preschoolers this morning. It was good to get out of my box and stretch my legs! I helped the boys and girls find my home and my other visits on a big map. I whoed them all the things I've collected so far.

    Friday, October 19, 2012

    I'm having lots of fun! I've played house, played with Legos, and been read to. I got to play outside, too. I loved going down the slide! Yesterday, I met Timber. He was a traveling bear last year. He told me it was fun to meet all the boys and girls!

    Tuesday, October 23, 29012

    We painted paper pumpkins today. I didn't want to get orange or green paint on my fur so I sat on the counter and watched. The boys and girls showed me their pumpkins after they glued the letters of their names on them. Then we played outside. I got to ride in the wagon. It was bumpy!

    Thursday, October 25, 2012

    Today is my last day in Auburn Nebraska. We had a party. The boys and girls brought their teddy bears or their favorite stuffed friend. We ate cookies shaped like paws. We played games and sang songs. I said goodbye to the boys and girls and they helped me get all cozy in my traveling box. I'm off to New Jerseay!

    We opened Bo’s box after breakfast. Before opening Bo’s box I got the map out of Bo’s travels and pointed out to the children that Bo had arrived in Minnesota. The pre-schoolers were very excited to get Bo out of his box, look at all the things he had collected during his travels and open the wonderful gift from Ms. Lynn’s Pre-school. We also enjoyed reading Bo’s favorite book “The Crayon Box That Talked” during story time.

    Bo had a very busy week. He tried sliding but it was too cold so Bo and his Coast Guard Buddy watched from the window. He built Lego’s with Owen, played with Kyle, and bounced with Ba Emma. He was a big helper when the children were working on their Christmas projects and didn’t get into any trouble last week; he did nap with Owen and Aubree, he was very tired from playing. On Friday Aubree was very scared to visit the Dentist so he went along to help her and then had a sleep over at her house. I did hear in church this morning that he didn’t stay in bed last night and was hiding in her closet this morning.

    Thursday, December 6, 2012

    Bo went for a sleep over with Aubree and Owen this week. At Aubree's he played dress up, ate pizza, went shopping and snuck away during the night and hid in Aubree's closet. At Owens he sat nice at dinner, and played with trucks, he did sneak away again during the night and was asleep in Owens little sisters bouncer the next morning.

    Sunday, December 9, 2012

    The children had a lot of fun with Bo this week and were sad to see him go. One day this week he did sneak away and the children found him in the cat tunnel. Ryan brought his bear Kendal to play with Bo, the bears started to wrestle and I needed to separate them.
