 Today - Arlington turns 18.  Hos is it possible for me to have an 18 year old?  Time is going by too quickly.

We celebrated back in January before she left for school, but today we sent her treats to her dorm to help celebrate with her in person the best we could.  She has had an amazing year, and we cannot wait to see what is in store for her moving forward

Read The World Challenge Complete

 I have offically read a book that takes place in each country in the world.  IT was a 2 year project because I lost momentum for awhile due to the move.  But it is done and the shelves are in alphabetical order by country!  Pretty proud

If you want to see what I read - go HERE

Covid Pool Testing Comes to Littleton

 Our school district has decided to jump into the "pool" and start to do twice weekly Covid testing.  We have two cohorts of students, since we are still in the hybrid program, so we test one group of students on Mondays and one group on Thursdays.  We are testing about 800 kids in our district, which is about half our school population.

The nurses needed help, so I am helping with the testing those two days a week.  I am loving it.  It is satisfying to help keep track of our Covid cases, and also help our staff feel a little safer.

Right now the program is for 6 weeks, but the plan will be for it to continue until the end of the school year.  I hope it does.  There is a chance the students will go back to school full time, so with more students in the building, this will become more important than ever.

this is my outfit for the testing.  A face shield, a N95 mask, and a gown and gloves.

Scooby's Surgery

 As some of you might remember - last spring Scooby injured his back left leg, and had to have surgery.  He tore his ligament in his knee.  We were told that there would be a good chance that the other leg might eventually have the same problem, and that vet was right.  Scooby was just playing in the yard, and we heard him yelp and he started to limp.  We knew what was going on, so we got him into the vet right away.

Today was surgery day!  He had the identical surgery he had last spring, just on the right leg this time.  Poor dog.  He spent the day with the surgeon and is home this evening resting.  IT will be a slow recovery - the doctor said that the tear was very bad.
