I have spent the last month working with Viva in Madison's classroom. That meant driving to and from her school which is about 30 minutes away. Today was her first day riding in the van alone with Madison. I took this picture to show how excited Madison was to have her "buddy" with her.
The day however was much harder than the staff anticipated. It looks as if the bus driver undid her leash and the staff didn't put it back on right. Thus, they were dragged through the school to get to the classroom and the commands given were not obeyed. However, when I arrived at lunch time Viva was on her best behavior. When we returned to the classroom I noticed that the large jar of treats I sent into the classroom were almost gone (uh, poor belly on Viva).
Here's hoping Wednesday goes a bit smoother....positive note last Friday Viva detected another fever on Maddie. Super, super excited to not only realize what was happening but the classroom staff saw how Viva acted....
