The Willis Family, Norcross, Georgia
Ruby 5 arrived on Friday in Atlanta, Georgia! I was really surprised because I forgot that Ruby was coming for a visit. When she came, I introduced her to my Ruby and my sister's Rufus. She really enjoyed their company. On Saturday she came to my cheerleading game, she enjoyed it, but I didn't! On Monday, Ruby 5 and my Ruby and Rufus came to school with me because my class is doing their Service Learning Project on helping to raise money for the walk to cure diabetes.
Ruby went to my sister's marching band competition. The music was very loud!! Ruby 5 has had lots of fun! I can't wait to do the JDRF walk.
The walk was very fun! My teacher walked with my mom and I. There were so many people at the walk! I can't wait to do it next year. While I was walking, I kept Ruby in a little dog pouch that I used to carry my dog in. But now my dog is too BIG, but the pouch is perfect for Ruby!
On the Sunday after the walk, the JDRF had a Halloween Carnival. Ruby and I had a lot of fun there.
I am really going to miss you Ruby. We have had lots of fun together. Thanks for visiting. I am sad that you are leaving me but happy that another child with diabetes will enjoy having you visit! Bye!
