Sept. 20

"Woo hoo! This is perfect! If he arrives Thursday I will have until the following Thursday with him, right?

That means he can attend both of my classes next week!! whoo hoo!"

"Still waiting.........just letting you know...I knew it was going to take longer being in Canada...probably stuck in customs...

The kids are getting so pumped about Theodore and it's causing quite the buzz at school (our playschool is located in bigger school K-9)... We decided that maybe Theodore hadn't arrived yet because we didn't have the classroom ready to welcome him...so we made construction paper teddies (embellished with wiggly eyes, cloth scraps, stickers, yarn and beads) and put them up on a bulletin board...the wording says "Hop on! Teddy Bear Express") -- I used an old pooh bear sheet to cover most of the background and then put up all the teddy bears...

I think tomorrow we are going to decorate the classroom with things that teddy bears might like...and then pray that he arrives before next Monday..."

"Yup, as of right now the word is that Theodore is either trapped in customs or he is in a larger centre (Edmonton or Calgary) waiting for the trip up North...poor little guy...we know he reached Canada on the 29th...but from there it's all guesses as to exactly where he is. I'm waiting for the manager of the post office to call to see if we can track it with the usps number...cuz the lady at the desk today wasn't sure and the manager was out to lunch...

I'm seriously considering sending him with the guy in the brown suit or greyhound when it's time to ship him out to avoid this sort of delay..."

"I went into my class today (today's playschool class was cancelled cuz I had to attend a conference for the Media Studies class that I'm teaching on the side this month)...and discovered a box on my table. I guess the post office delivered Theodore to the Playschool Box even though I gave y'all my Mailbox as the address...My middle son (and another playschool child who was there with me...her mom looks after my youngest son) were there with me and wanted to open up the box right there and then...but I refused...what a meanie I am. I told them we have to wait for class on Friday...

So he's here!! He's here!! So I guess we won't being turkey stuff on Friday...lol"

"We've been having a blast with Theo and Tex. We will be sending him out on Monday during class...a little field trip to the post office. Well, either that or just after next Monday's class. I have to check on the status of the post office first. See we had a fire at the post office on Saturday and I'm not sure if it will be up and running by next Monday or not. They've got a temporary location set up right now...out of another building in town so we can still send and recieve mail (well the stuff that wasn't burned anyway)...so if it's still in the temp building I'll send it myself after class...

I don't have pics yet...took some but they are on the school's digital camera and I don't have the right cord to hook it up to my computer here...I took some video footage too...but unfortunately it was no good due to technical difficulties...gonna try again on Friday when we have birthday party....

Toodles till later,

"I just realized I hadn't sent out an official he's on his way note. Sorry about that.

He is indeed on his way, dropped at the post office by the treasurer of our playschool on Wednesday...so on the truck (and trek) south on Thursday morning...

It shouldn't be long now...unless customs roughs him up again...lol

"Theodore & Tex arrived in Colorado Springs on Tuesday just before lunch. The kids were very excited about the "big box" and the surprises inside! We opened the box after lunch...Theodore & Tex got to take a nap with the kids!! After nap we had yogurt, teddy grahams that Theodore brought for us and some juice.

Thank you Dee Dee for the teddy grahams, art set, Goodnight Moon book (which we have read several times already), the stickers, book marks and tooth brushes!! We loved it all!!"

"Theodore and Tex arrived yesterday afternoon! I had only 2 kids here at the time, but they were so excited. Tex had no energy left from his trip to sing for us. We fed him some new batteries and then he sang for us. Theo and Tex enjoyed hearing some of the books that Tisha sent for us. Thank you for the books and treats, Tisha! I will send Theodore and Tex out next Tuesday."
