Special delivery!

Today is the scheduled day of our paperwork arrival, via Fed Ex. I cleared the day of all my appointments and activities, so that I would be home…. The only thing that required me to leave the house was transporting Mr.D to and from school.

With that in mind, I decided to write a note for the delivery person in hopes that it would work if I missed him.

I taped it to my front door and went to buckle Mr.D and his frogs into the car.

Yes, I said frogs. It was
“bring a wild creature to school” day and he was so happy about it.

Just a little side note about the frogs…There were huge discussions about how to transport his frogs. I nicked the bucket idea when I saw how jumpy they were and his tank was just to heavy to carry into school. I caved in and bought a small creature travel carrier. I have a feeling it won’t be the last time I transport “wild creatures” in my car.
So….for this much anticipated day, he had been collecting the frogs out of the pool. Of course a new one was found today, but I put my foot down on trying to catch him in our limited time constraints.

Anyhow… I just came from dropping Mr.D and his frogs off and I see a truck in the driveway. I quickly pull in to block it from leaving. Yes, I am currently a bit crazy. And run to the door with my camera.

He just laughed at the request.

Now I need to get started on some of the final paperwork!
