Empty Nest - not so much :-)

Both two legged kids are home this weekend so the nest has been pretty full.  Both are leaving again today.  Engineering kid is coming back home tomorrow (after his interview for a REAL after graduation job) but has to go back to school to write one more exam, then both will be back for Christmas break.  It is lovely having them home - even more so because I know that this will likely be the last time either of them is home for an extended time.

One of the things I was looking forward to was having them help with some of the multi person exercises in the recallers course.  That was pretty much a bust.  The only males capable of maintaining criteria in this house are the four legged ones!  Oh well.

We have been busy with training and practicing and I wasn't planning to enter any agility trials until spring.  Our regional competition this year may have to limit entries.  If they limit by competition level (which I do think is probably the fairest way) Max will probably not quite qualify.  I have to decide if I want to try a couple of trials this winter and hope we've fixed our contact problem or just to wait until next year for regionals.  Either way it's only going to be 20 minutes from my house this year so if I don't go as a competitor I will go as a volunteer.
