Waiting for Ryan

Yesterday afternoon, around the time I knew Ryan would get off the bus, I noticed our dog was patiently waiting by the front door.  What makes this unique is because our dog is usually more engrossed in what is happening with the squirrels in the backyard than what is going on in the front of the house.  Unless someone is walking their dog.  Or the UPS/Fed Ex man appears.

He let out a sigh and decided to get more comfortable.

His ears perked up when he saw his best buddy walking up the sidewalk.

You can't tell, but his tail is going 100 mph.  He even looks like he's trying to open the door. lol!

Yay!  Ryan's home!  Time for jumping up and down in excitement.  That would be me. ;-)  (Good thing there is not a picture of that. lol!)

Ryan had a good first day of school.  He seems to like his teachers and classes.  I'm always anxious the first day, wondering what his day is like.  So far, he is always (kinda) glad to be back at school.  I hope he will continue to be this way.

Wish everyone would have a "welcome home" like this one!

Thanks for looking in!
