I have been making her send her food as text messages, so I get her more used to the phone as a typing tool, and she says it has been helping.... 

So sunday, as we all know, is a kind of vegging day, so she didn't really do that much.  When I asked if she was ready to come home, she said she wished we could all move out there...  That would be tough, but a nice idea....  :)

Thursday July 19

Calli has been working hard with Q, she says they do a route where she has to cross multiple 6 lane roads, and that she's becoming more and more comfortable with their skills at it together. Evidently the route is a big loop with 3 street crossings at either end and a McDonalds somewhere along it. The dogs' foster families have been coming for a final visit with dogs and their partners, and that has been good but tough. The dogs are happy to see their people again, and then a bit confused, the people are happy and proud and sad all at the same time, and the kids get some of that too. So far there have been two families come, with another scheduled for Friday. Calli has been learning to play computer monopoly on her iPhone, so we'll look into getting a board at home. It's not one of my favorite games, so I've not bought one for the kids yet. For breakfast she had eggs, I told her with the amount of walking she's doing, she needs the protein! Noodles Steak and vegetables for lunch, and corn dogs, hamburgers, and french fries for dinner. She say breakfast is at 7, Dog care is at 8 and they're out on the road at 8:30 every morning. Today I learned that the kids are learned a different sort of technique that I expected, dealing with the dog balking at an obstacle. We bought Calli a folding Cane and a holster to carry it in, but they are also taught a cane free method, that they're still practicing. Very practical I thought.

So, it thunderstormed all day.  They did do "route" in some place she calls "the Restaurant"  Apparently, they get drinks there.  I am not quite sure what the place is, but they do their routes there regularly...

She says Q got on her bed twice, so I guess that means he likes her...

Not much else happened all day, because of the storms.
Food: Breakfast was Froot Loops
Lunch: Soup, spaghetti, and strawberry squares for dessert
Dinner: Pork with mushroom sauce, potatoes, soup, and yes, strawberry squares for dessert.
