For the last two weeks, I have been looking for the right dog to join our family. On Monday, I sent in an application for a 1 1/2 old Shih Tzu. After Kiran and my SIL went to see Lulu, the foster mom denied us because because she would be only 8 hours a day during the school year. That was the only reason. She thought Kiran did a great job with all the dogs she saw that day. Kiran is so ready to be a pet owner. She wants a dog so badly. For the last two months, she cries daily for a dog. She is so gentle and kind with any animal she sees. My brother had to put down their dog down in April and Kiran took to very hard. She would spend so much time with Bruno, talking to him, petting him and playing with him. Our only problem is living in a town house, we will only be able to adopt a dog under 25 pounds.
My cousin lives on a small farm. They have sheep and chickens. Kiran gathers the eggs, plays with sheep and loves the barn cats not to mention the two dogs that hang out.
It might have been easier adopting a child.....

We are having a wonderful summer. We started out attending an India Culture Camp in St Paul and it has only been getting better. Kiran, for the first time, really enjoyed camp and being with families that looked like ours. These are two photos of Kiran at camp.
We went up to the Iron Range for the 4th of July. It was the first time we have ventured up north in a very long while. It was wonderful hang out and see family again. Not to mention being by Lake Vermilion and just enjoying the view.
This past Sunday, my three SILs and 4 nieces, were off to Milwaukee (a five and half hour drive). We attended Summerfest with the main attraction being those cute, wonderful, young men, The Jonas Brothers. I have never experienced anything quite like it before. There where 26,000 people there. I bet 20,000 of them were under the age of 20. The girls were screaming for almost three hours. The Brothers put on one heck of a show. It was worth the drive to see the looks of my daughter and nieces when those boys came on stage and the entire time that they sang.
We finished our last soccer game tonight and start dance next week. In the mean time, we are on the hunt for a dog. Kiran wants a dog so badly so we are looking for a cute little small dog that fit in with the family.
I hope all is well with everyone of my friends.....
