The Green Family, West Branch, Michigan

Ruby arrived here with great excitement. My kids, Jenny, 17; Tom, 10; and Allie, 9 (dx'd @ 2 1/2), were happy to find Ruby in our mailbox (yes, we have a big mailbox). She came just in time to have dinner, then join the younger kids at swim practice. After that, it was homework and bed time.

Today, Ruby got to accompany Allie at school, then she got to attend her Girl Scout meeting. She had so much fun meeting all those new friends. Then, home to get ready for Thanksgiving the next day.

Happy Thanksgiving! Ruby enjoyed eating lots of turkey and stuffing (no worry about calories for her!), and she got to meet Allie's grandparents, her aunt Bridget, and uncle Rod (her God Parents). She got to watch Shrek with the family.

Today, Ruby got to help at her second cookie booth, where we set up a table at a local business to sell Girl Scout cookies. It was a little cold, but she helped keep the girls warm.

We wanted to get Ruby out to the next family by the end of the week, but Allie's teacher keeps forgetting to give her time to introduce her to the class. Ruby really wants to meet all of Allie's classmates, and visit with them more.

After a busy and hectic weekend, Ruby is off to the next family. We sure enjoyed having her, and getting to spend time with her. Allie wants a Ruby of her own, so that is now on her Christmas list.
