Justin’s Graduation from Boot Camp!

Jessica, Jennifer, kids and I drove up to Chicago, met up with Calie and Laura (Calie’s Mom) and we attended Justin’s graduation from Boot Camp. I’m riding down the road at a high rate of speed and so I can’t put little circles around Justin and stuff like I really should. But, he’s the TALL one in the center of many of these shots! Oh, and he looks like me!

Petey

Petey died yesterday. Justin got Petey in 1999, and he’s been one of the best dogs we’ve ever had. He was excellent with the kids, was a great guardian for the house (remember that’s what Pekingese dogs were bred for) and was an all-around great companion. Our pets leave big holes in our lives when they are gone, but the memories are still there. Here’s some photos of Petey through the years for us all to remember.

Grandma and Grandpa relaxing on the couch with Petey enjoying the festivities December 24, 2007!

I babysat Delilah over the weekend and brought Petey along to enjoy farm living again! May 5, 2007

Petey has always been close to Delilah, here she was about a month old.

I babysat Delilah and Bryce Saturday while Jessica was at work, and I saw this when I checked on her about a half hour into her nap, December 10, 2005.

Christmas 2002; Petey thought he was a present too!

Here’s all the kids with their dogs on October 1, 2001


Jennifer clipped all the dogs, and then the weather turned cool! So, we got
shirts for Petey and Paige, probably April 9, 2001.
