Bears lovers unite!!!
Summer is the turtle (I bought her last year at Starbucks at the beginning of summer).
Valentino (Godiva bear my fiancé bought for Valentine’s day).
Sawyer (Habitat for Humanity bear).
Keifer (our very first bear for our first Valentine’s day – 2007) We named him Keifer after the Chicago restaurant where we went for our second date.
We LOVE your bear "tales" – they make us laugh!
A Letter To The KERF Bears
Dear Bocker, Beaker and Churton,
Hi! Our mom reads your mom’s blog and told us about you and showed us pictures of everything you’ve been doing this summer. We were really excited to read about other bears, we don’t get to meet many of our relatives (we’re assuming we’re related to each other somehow). I hope your mom will send you this message, we didn’t have your individual e-mail addresses.
How do you all like staying at your grandma’s? It looks like a lot of fun. Our mom won’t let us stay with our Nana, she says she lives too far away and she would miss us too much. We think the real reason is that she doesn’t want to let us off work for that long. Do you have any pets? We have 2 cats. Our job is to watch them while Mom and Dad are at work. They pay us for watching them so I guess it isn’t too bad. It isn’t very much but we try to save most of our paychecks because Mom and Dad say we’re old enough to buy our own treats now.
Do you all get to travel very much? We love to travel but road trips are better than airplanes. Mom crams us into her backpack when we fly and it’s not very comfortable. Stretching out in the back seat is so much better and our friend Moose can come too (he’s too big to go on a plane).
How long have you lived with your parents? I (Bear) don’t remember living anywhere except with my mom. I met her on Christmas day the year she was born, so we’re the same age and we grew up together. I could tell you lots of stories about her, but she might not like that and since I need her help to write this (typing without thumbs is so hard!) I’d better be nice J Heidi and I met when Mom and Dad took me to a teddy bear museum about 10 years ago. They had a whole room full of teddy bears that were up for adoption. As soon as we saw Heidi we wanted to bring her home with us. Of course, we wanted to bring home all of the bears since they didn’t really have a home, but Mom told me other families would adopt them – I sure hope she was right!
Well, we should get back to work. Everyone thinks cats sleep all day, but our cats still require a lot of supervision. I’ve attached a picture of me (the birthday bear), Heidi and Moose. I hope you write back, we’ve never had bear-pals before!
Have a good summer!
Bear and Heidi
The Bears Write Back
Dear Bear + Heidi,
We’re so excited to have a pen bear!! Grammy’s house is fun, but we miss our friends in Charlottesville (mostly, El Tigre the cat) so we like writing to you!
The pond was fun today. Grammy made us put sunscreen all over our furr and that made us extra slipper. We had fun sliding extra fast down the slide (it’s a fancy pond with a waterfall and a slide!).
Tomorrow we’re going on a field trip to a bee farm to learn about how honey is made. It will be hard to keep our paws from dipping in the honeycomb!
Mom wants to know if you guys want to be on her blog? Is it ok with your mom?
Bocker, Beaker + Churton Younger-Monson
Bears rule, humans drool!
