    Today The Apple Orchard will be saying goodbye to Hope! We had a yucky bug come through last week and many of the kids would not get to say goodbye to her so we had her a few extra days. As you can see Hope is sporting her new Cincinnati Bengals bib as she gets a little messy when she eats!

    Sadly I just left Hope at the post office but as you can see she is in very good hands!

    Hope said her good byes today. She will be tucked into bed tonight as snug as a bug in a rug in her traveling box and will be shipped tomorrow to her next adventure. We had a lot of fun with her even though a lot of the kids have been out sick this past week. I did try to sanitize her with a Clorox wipes in hopes not to have traveling germs with her.

    Hope had a wonderful first day with our kids at Happy House Learning Care yesterday. She was introduced at circle time, helped us put up our day on our calendar, had a picnic with the girls, and took a walk before our 8 inch snowstorm last night. She is playing with just one or two children today, as the snow is keeping children home.
