Annabel’s school has an awards assembly once a month, and each grade takes turns providing pre-assembly “entertainment.” The first graders were up this past Friday, and they put on a play called, “Wonderful Weather.” It was really cute, lots of singing and pretending to be rain, wind, and the sun. James played the role of proud brother, taking video of the entire thing. Of course, he ended up with a lot of shots of his own feet, my lap, and the audience, but it kept him quiet and engaged the whole time, so who cares?

Doggone Cool

~We’ve been getting Schuyler some toys (anything to distract her from chewing on my damn walls), and I just ordered this even though it appears to be for cats. I think Schuyler will like it because she looooves chasing James’ cars around on his magic tracks. Plus, she’s cat-sized.
~I was also looking into cave-style beds for Schuyler, since she loves to burrow, and would it be weird to order her this shark bed? Because it might be in my cart right now.
~Annabel saw this dog track suit on YouTube and is begging us to get it for Schuyler. I’m going to pass, but it DOES crack me up.
