Thome (as in Jim Thome, named by ODD) came from US Cellular Field. He was a gift from one of our of our daycare families because we gave them our Sox tickets that we couldn't use. He typically sits in our "sports room" and is available to love and watch games. We are a HUGE sports family, most of them are Sox fans. I am the only Cubs fan. We coach most of our daycare children in tball/coach pitch, so I'd say anything sports related would be awesome. I haven't told the daycare children yet that Thome is leaving for a special adventure, but my children Kaylyn (almost 14),Brian(10) ,&Ashlee(7) are sooooooooooooo excited. They will be helping me get Thome's things ready for his trip.

Today we took Thome for a long walk around our city. We stopped to read several plaques in the square telling us about the History of Hanover. It was a beautiful day.

Friday, October 19, 2007

Thome woke up today to the excited voices of the daycare children. Nana's Nest is going to the fire station today. What a great time we had. The fireman showed us the fire trucks and ambulance. They showed us where they sleep and eat. The fireman gave us all a firehat. Later in the day Thome joined Kaleigh and Caleb for music therapy. That was fun and Thome learned some new songs.


Monday, October 22, 2007

Thome spent the weekend with Nana and Pappy resting up for his trip to Someplace Special in Virginia. The children arrived Monday very happy to see that Thome was still here but sad to know that he would be leaving the next day. Thome and the children spent the day working on decorations for the Halloween party.

Wednesday, October 23, 2007

More Halloween crafts were made by Thome and the children today. They made little eyes and mouth on a dried lima bean for ghosts and glued them in the windows on a picture of a scary house. They were very cute. Before naptime all the children took turns saying goodbye to Thome for the last time. We hope to see him again.
