Visit from a friend… Day 1034 15SEP11

Joshua had a full morning of school work and did pretty well. I got to do his reading with him and that was a lot of fun. We curled up on his bed so he could read his story to me and then I asked him the reading comprehension questions at the end. How many schools have a setup like that! Pretty cool.

After lunch Renee called the vets office up the street to find out if we could bring our little stray cat up and have them see if he had a chip that they could read to find his owners. Lo and behold his owner had called the vet and they gave us her info so Renee could call her. She called and after giving the lady a description we were formally introduced to Whiskers. He had gone missing a week ago and his owner was of course thrilled that we had found him and quickly made arrangements to come by later and pick him up. A few hours later they were reunited and headed off together. A happy ending :) We love happy endings.

The rest of the afternoon was pretty normal and after it cooled down a bit the boys and I went out to play a little street hockey while we waited for our friend to arrive for dinner. Our friend was none other than Coach Raymond whom we had invited to come over for dinner a while back. He finally had a little break in his busy schedule and headed over. It was great to see him and Joshua was thrilled that he came to visit. We had a nice dinner and spent several hours visiting while Joshua taught him how to play a couple of his favorite board games. All to soon it was time for him to leave. We really enjoyed having him over and hopefully he will stop by again the next time he wants a good home cooked meal, the kitchen is always open at our house :)
