"All,
He arrived at our daycare door around 10:45 am. We heard the door shut and the mailman left him between the doors. We opened him up and sat him in his special chair so he could see all of us. We had snack time which Darlington bear shared with us. We did our circle time and he sat with us. We learned where he came from and who he visited last week. More on Darlington Later.."

"Darlington will be going today to his next destination. He was supposed to go yesterday but my son had an asthma attack that I could not get under control so we ended up at the hospital yesterday. Poor thing was there all day and night. The hospital was great though, they did trick or trating, but they brought the candy to the kids. It was so nice....So I'm sorry that he did not go yesterday but will for sure go today."

"OHIO!!!! My DH just took Darlington to the post office...he should be to Jana soon!!

We had a great time with Darlington and are all sad to see him go! We had fun playing outside on the swings and slides, doing arts & crafts, music class, reading stories and playing in the "fort" the kids built. We didn't get much outside time with Darlington because it is was too cold.

Jana...enjoy the surprises the Darlington is bringing for you and the kids!! I will send pictures to the group soon."

"If you are NOT ready, you better GET ready because he will be at your house before you know it.

I forgot to tell you my funny...I was getting Darlington ready for his journey, packed up things for you and your kids, put Darlington's belongings in the box and started closing the flaps of the box waiting for DH to put tape on the box, when my son says to me "Don't you need to put the bear in the box?" I almost sent out the box without the bear...LOL!!! Some times kids can be a help!! Enjoy him...I can't wait for you to get him."
