First, read this post to catch up. Since that day at the Pink Shop, Mr. Bear has had many wonderful adventures. He comes to the grocery store, preschool, church, and the library. One night as we were going through the bed time routine we discovered Mr. Bear was missing. After retracing our steps we were confident he had been left at the library. So, as soon as the library opened the next day, we zoomed over to get him. Josh and Halle had a blast making up stories about Mr. Bear’s sleep over at the library.
Sometime in Sept, the same thing happened. Bed time came, and no Mr. Bear could be found. We racked our brains, and hunted the house top to bottom. But no luck, he was lost. There were many sad nights, and days spent turning the toyroom upside down.
About 1 week ago Halle comes charging through the door and shouts, “I have the most WONDERFUL news!” (She had been on her first kindergarten field trip that day and I was sure she was bursting at the seams to talk about it). I said, “Tell me about your day!” She said, “No Mom, even BETTER NEWS. I FOUND MR. BEAR.” What??? Had Mr. Bear magically made his way to the Children’s Museum in Denver? No, but he had ended up in the school’s lost and found. On her way to the bus, Halle had seen him sitting on the top shelf. As soon as Josh woke up from his nap we raced to the school to rescue him. And there was much rejoicing.
