The Stops

Nana's Nest Family Daycare
Hanover, Pennsylvania

Mon, 14 Feb 2005

Colby just arrived at my front door. All the children are sleeping but I opened the box and poor Colby was very glad to get out of the wet, damp box.(It is raining buckets here). We looked at the map this morning and talked about how long it may take Colby to get here from Virginia. The children will be so excited to find him here when they wake up from nap! I will begin taking pictures right away. Cece, thank you for all the goodies. I didn't explore any more in the box-I want to wait for the children. We will take good care of Colby.

I dropped Colby off at the PO at 2:23 today. He was sent Priority Mail to Katy. I hope he has a pleasant trip. Thanks for letting us have him visit. We really enjoyed him. My grandson, Brady, really became attached to him. We are now looking forward to having Valentine visit in a few weeks.

He got here Friday when we were not here so I had to go pick him up at the post office yesterday. I won't have any kids til Monday so I opened the box and peeked so Colby is now hanging out with all the baby dolls. Thanks for all the goodies Sheron I know the kids will love it.

I'm glad that Colby got there okay. I was getting a little worried because I was tracking him and they were saying that he had reached his destination. I was worried that I had put the wrong address on the box or something dumb like that! I hope you all enjoy the goodies. I tried to hit all ages but I know with my group that food is always good. I hope that the book that I sent is one that you do not have. I really enjoy that one and the children do to. Jamie Lee Curtis is such a good author. Have a good week and enjoy Colby. Your time with him will go so fast! Tell him that Nana and the children at Nana's Nest say "HI!" especially Brady. Brady is my grandson. He is 2 and he got very attached to Colby. I don't think that he understood that we had to sent him away.

Colby was here waiting for us but we were out of town. We will wait until the morning when the daycare children arrive. They have been waiting on him and I know they will be excited to see him.

Mon, 11 April 2005

All the children were screaming when I got the box out. They knew exactly what was in there. They chanted "Colby Colby Colby". We looked over all the wonderful information he brought along with him. Of course as always Montanna took care of him first. The little mother hen. Thank you for the wonderful goodies! The kids enjoyed the snack.

Wed, 13 April 2005

Colby spent the night last night with Destiny and she was happy to report "Colby is not mean. He's a nice boy!" He will be joining Kyle's family tonight. They have a special bed made just for Colby.

Sun, 17 April 2005

Colby went to the Holloman AFB Air Show today with Kyle's family. He had so much fun seeing all the airplanes. He got scared at one point because they were re-acting "Bombs Over Baghdad". The bombs were very loud. Thank goodnes they put sun screen on him or he would have been really sunburned. Colby said he would like to take back home with him a base newspaper and an air show progam. I will get one for him!

Wed, 20 April 2005

We have all of Colby's stuff in the box along with the goodies for Carrie's daycare. We are all so sad to see him go but we understand he has some more wonderful days ahead in his travels. I got ready to seal the box when I noticed Colby was not in there. We searched all of the place. Mr. Marvin found him hiding under the air hockey table. He will be missed! Hugs and lots of zerberts from all of us at Homecare For Little People in New Mexico.

COLBY is here already!! I haven't opened the box yet, will do that tomorrow when everyone is here. Have already had kids leave early today since its such a nice spring day. I'm itching to see whats inside though, lol


Fri, 6 May 2005

Today we welcomed Colby to our daycare. The kids were SOOOO excited! Talk about a sugar pill? LOL We looked at the map to see where he lives and where all he has traveled to, and read one of the books that came with him. We enjoyed the granola bars that Carrie sent along for everyone, yummy. They all took turns holding him during circle time, and Kinzie (3) is going to take him home this weekend and take good care of him.


Mon, 9 May 2005

Colby spent the weekend with KN and boy did they ever have a good time. He helped her plant their garden on Saturday, and on Sunday she taught him how to go PP in the sink! LOL He was a very good boy and didn't wake her up at night. (although looking at her in the first picture it doesn't look like she got any sleep at all this weekend! ) The kids were so very happy to see him again this morning. He got to listen to a really cool book during storytime today about planting a rainbow garden and then KS gave him a piggy back ride during playtime! He is going to spend the night tonight with GH. Here are some pictures from today!


Meeting New Friends


Fri, 13 May 2005

We said our good-bye's to Colby this morning - even had some in tears! They loved having him here so much. Each preschooler got to take him home to spend the night at their house and returned him the next day telling about all the fun they had had with him and what a good boy he had been while he was at their house. They want to have Colby come again soon! Bye bye are on your way home now.
