“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” – ee cummings

birthday boy

This boy keeps us laughing. Sometimes intentionally, sometimes not — but either way, he provides a whole lot of entertainment. This week, we celebrated his 6th birthday!

Kathryn and Scout spent hours poking around DK’s new educational site. So much to learn there! It’s geared for ages 7-12, but could go a couple of years on either end of that. Kathryn also introduced Scout to kidsastronomy.com since it goes along with what Scout has been doing in one of her weekly enrichment classes.

We had a birthday dog this week, too; Daisy turned 8!

Piper started obedience classes, and I’m happy to report she was not the worst-behaved dog in class. I registered for my personal trainer test (next month!) and did my CPR re-certification class since it’s required before I can test. The weather threatened snow and public schools shut down for two days just in case — but all we got was cold rain. Later in the week we did see snow flurries; nothing stuck but it’s been way too cold for this girl!

Happy birthday to the birthday boy and birthday dog! When I was a child, my mum was a DK consultant so we always had stacks of their books; they were/are fabulous resources so I can well believe the website is excellent.


Happy 6th Birthday Jem! Was there any big feelings associated with his big day? I remember those….


My daughter T(now 14) was adopted at almost 10, and it was rough. She has gotten better over the years. It will be interesting to see how our newest additions J and K handle their 5th birthday in May.

Thank you so much for the DK site heads up! Awesome! And while I don’t have girls to buy things for (two boys and no grandkids yet – Congratulations to your family by the way!), I did go poking around your daughters etsy site. Very Cute stuff! I may even show my 12 year old boy the site just to give him a little inspiration. Thanks.
