Learning About the World at Large

Stephen has been out and about ALOT lately. Spending LOTS of time in the car. Fortunately for us both he’s a very good traveler!

Stephen got to meet all the “Powers That Be” in Somervell County. The county auditor, the county attorney, the county judge, lots of clerks. A whole bunch of nice folks. He learned a lot about county government.

The Founders statue made a BIG impression on the little guy!
Glen Rose is the Dinosaur Capitol of Texas
Somervell County Courthouse


We had a couple of fun outings with our fellow puppy buddies

A puppy wash at Earthwise Pet Supply in Richardson
Collin Creek Mall in Richardson


A soccer game

The local feed store

The Toyota service department

He’s learning all about public bathrooms

He attended a funeral at the National Cemetery in Dallas. He really liked hearing TAPS.

And he did a bit of shopping with Mom. Oh, the aromas of new clothes!!

He’s been to banks and post offices and church and the grocery store. And LOTS of restaurants.

Stephen is such a gift to my psyche! He finds such JOY in everything he does. The world is just full of new and wondrous things everywhere you look – and sniff.

I hope you can go out and find some Wonders in your world this week!



At Home at the 7 Acre Wood

Just a little look at Stephen’s life these days at the 7 Acre Wood.

Learning to commune politely with the other residents – namely –
Wally the Cat

Sharing space and sharing toys

Quiet time

Playing in the rain

Playing tag

And learning a GOOD Sit/Stay
This is a particularly FINE picture because just off to Stephen’s right, the chickens are parading in to see what’s going on.

And if you look closely in the shadows you’ll see those crazy hens! Stephen is doing a FINE job of ignoring them!!

I wish you all a FINE week full of Warmth and Sunshine!
