This was a nice day for the Ross Family, in San Diego. Jason decided that it was time to take Kojak up to Buddy Todd Park, where the service dog training takes place. Since the girls enjoy going to the park they went along, too. I drove the van, and the four of us and the two dogs fit comfortably. Linda had a meeting with the Blue Star Mothers, and so she did not come with us.
The girls were all over the place, and did their best to make sure Grandpa got some exercise. The number one thing for them is the swings, and we spent probably a half an hour on them, before they wanted to go somewhere else. They were up in the trees, as well as on the climbing structures, and slides. There were at least four birthday parties going on at this same time, so there were other kids there, and Jackie made friends with another little girl. This other little girl was there with her big sister and their grandpa. We ended up staying together as a group and I got to talk with the grandpa. I guess the most interesting thing was that his name is also George, and we got along well. It was nice seeing the girls play with other kids, and the good thing was that they were all in the same general age group.
We ended up staying there for almost two hours, before it was time to come home, and as it turned out there was very little training going on, and more activities focused on what they had been learning over the past several months. Jason wasn't aware of this until we arrived, and though he really didn't have a great deal to do, it was a good opportunity for him, Jason, to do some socializing and for the dogs to do the same. The drive home was a little slow, as Comic-con is still going on for another day, and I'm glad it is over tomorrow.
We got home and after lunch we all took a little nap. I didn't get a long nap as I had things to do, and when Linda got home a short while later, she found me up at the computer, working on getting the printers to clear and start functioning again. Not sure what happened, but both (we have two printers) printers just didn't seem to want to talk with the system. It cleared almost as strangely as it started.
This evening we had salmon, rice and vegetables, and then the girls had some chocolate ice cream for their dessert. Jason woke from his nap, just a little while before dinner, and though he had dinner, he didn't have dessert. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
