new addition

Are we crazy? With our already insane lives, we go and decide to add another member to the family. We had decided that we would purchase a dog when we got home this summer. However, because of some issues ( passports being just one of those) we are not going home. So Harmony, immediatley caught on and said, " oh so we can get a dog earlier then." We told her we would LOOK. We had a budget that we were not going to go over and so I warned the kids, that we may end up coming home with nothing. I warned them if they threw a fit, they would come home with nothing.

Well we went into the pet store and the kids fell in love. His name is Astro. Because he was a shelter dog,they were not sure of his exact breed. The kids loved him though and he was way under our budget.

He was just neutered last night and so is exaughsted. The kids will not leave him alone to sleep though! Poor thing! He is going to get so much love from these kids. Anyway, here are some pictures of our newest addition. Welcome home Astro!

Well, we're really disappointed that you guys aren't coming home this summer. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your passports come in time/somehow you will figure out how to come. We were so looking forward to seeing you all :(

Anyway, Astro's cute. He reminds me of the dogs we had growing up, especially Hogan. I'm sure he'll be lots of fun.
