This morning at 8:00 am a group of excited homeschoolers and friends met to release 50 helium balloons. Attached to each balloon was a card asking the person who finds it to let us know.
check out http://www.whereismyballoon.blogspot.com/ to track the progress. We have had one balloon reported in Missouri. If you live north east of Kansas City check through your yards and fields for a card attached to a string. We hope to get word from finders for all fifty cards.
It was a great time for all involved.
Casey, our new puppie is a miniature Schnauzer. He will probably be able 15 pounds. This is a lot smaller than Neelix but larger than our friends miniature Schnauzer, Otis, who is under 10 lbs. He did great today. It was a beautiful day to be outside. Herogian walked Penny around our property - off leash, with just the shock collar and Casey following. They did excellent. Penny is relaxing around the new puppy better today - no drooling. Casey enjoyed going to the balloon launch with us, playing outside, and sleeping on the couch curled up against Penny.
Herogian and Penny had a super day with training. Penny retrieved and brought back the frozen birds that Herogian uses for 'fetch' training. She did this off leash and he didn't have to use the shock collar. She is learning and so is Herogian. They even walked through the neighborhood with the check cord dragging behind, Herogian didn't have to hold onto it. Penny heeled the whole time. The smile on his face was almost as big as it was when he bagged the turkey last week.
