Ah, being laid up on the couch at home gave me enough time to do this again this week! Yippee!
Eloise's kindergarten class is finishing up their unit on urban animals. Each child needed to do some sort of project around the theme of how they can protect urban animals. The first thing we thought of building was a bat house, but those were a wee bit complicated. We settled on a chickadee house! Eloise is amazing with nails and a hammer! On Wednesday night all of the children set out their projects and their families came to the classroom to check them all out eat snacks. After looking at the project all of the kids and families from the K and 1st grade classes met and the kids sung three songs about animals, including The Beatles' "Blackbird". It was crazy adorable!
Here is our poodle mix, Heidi. Instagram cropped this picture a little more than I wish it had, because her back legs are straight up in the air! She loves to lay against this wall and twist her body in to this shape.
Iris and I participated in Eloise's school fundraising run for the Make-a-Wish foundation. Iris did three miles of laps and Eloise did just under five miles!
Peering in to the window of a storefront in our 'hood. It was big and empty except for the ocupants of the space set up a bunch of the animatronic animals called Rock-afire Exposion from an old Showbiz Pizza! I grew up going to Showbiz for my friends' birthday parties and so I thought it was pretty cool.
We had two very wet and soggy walks to school this week. Luckily Eloise thinks they are pretty fun!
