 For the last two years we've had our dog there has been a strict policy against allowing her on the bed or the couch.  But, lately I've been caving.  I find her up on the bed from time to time and she looks so comfy and cuddly, that I just let her stay there instead of commanding her "Off!"  And besides, she totally matches the blanket!

So far this is just a during the day thing and she's not tried to sleep with us at night yet. Oh, I am going to super regret relaxing this rule, aren't I?


Next Tuesday is the 100th day of school for my elementary kids.  And what better way to celebrate than with a project?!!!  For kindergarteners.  Super!

You know the drill (or at least I do by now since this is my 3rd kindergartener) - use 100 of a particular item and create something.

I give you my son's 100 marshmallows creation:

I'm not exactly sure what it is.  He has some story about a snake and some grass and a flower???  The main thing that thrilled me is that aside from sitting with him while he made groups of 10 to aid in the counting out of 100 marshmallows and supplying him with the materials, he did the whole thing without me!

The teacher sent home a note that read: "Please allow your child to do this project by themselves with your help.  It really doesn't benefit them (or you) if you do the project for them"

Yeah.  I don't think ANYONE will accuse me of doing this project for my 5 year old!

But, I'll get to school next week and no doubt see many projects that look like they were professionally done!


My son came home today with this super hole in the knee of his pants:

Come on shorts weather!


Happy Friday, Friends.  Have super weekend!


  1. I always enjoyed the 100th day of school.

  2. Your dog is adorable and I wouldn't be able to make it get down either. Ours sleeps on the bed during the day too, but not at night and I've never really regretted it.

  3. LOOOOOOVE dogs....have to labs outside but am begging for a inside breed....I need dog therapy!! =)

  4. Oh how well I remember those projects that the kids were supposed to do by themselves, and then getting to school and seeing creations that had to be done by professional designers, haha. I think your sons is wonderful! Enjoy your week-end!

  5. I'm not particularly a dog lover, but there is NO WAY I could kick that cute thing off the bed!

  6. I applaud you or letting your son do his own project.

  7. Wonderful goods from you, man. I have remember your stuff previous to and you are just
    too magnificent. I actually like what you've acquired right here, really like what you are stating and the way in which through which you are saying it. You're making
    it entertaining and you continue to take care of to stay it sensible.
    I can not wait to read much more from you. That is actually a wonderful website.
