It has been very hot here the past few days. So hot, the students couldn't even go outside to play. At 2:00, it was 100 degrees. At 3:00, the wind picked up and clouds crept in. Then, it poured!!! We came home to...
Uh oh. 
We weren't expecting a storm. 
Time for a new umbrella.

Happy Labor Day!

We hope all of Blogville had a lovely Monday. Usually, today would be the last hurrah before school started. It seems funny we've been in school for two weeks already.
Maybe is you're lucky you had an opportunity to get a lick of pie!

Daisy and I had a former student over to catch up before school started. She and Daisy raced around the yard for awhile, then she caught Lizzie, a baby lizard!
Daisy wanted some tips on how to catch one since she only seems to get their tails. 
It was a lot to take in for Daisy. After practicing with no success, Daisy toon 40 winks and dreamed about catching her own Lizzie.

Summer Reading With Daisy: McDuff Goes To School

It's hard to believe, but it's back to school time in our house!  My last book for the summer is McDuff Goes To School by Rosemary Wells and illustrated by Susan Jeffers.  McDuff is the Westie and Marie is the Scottie.  
Before I get to the story, I just had to show you this page.  Terriers are awesome and so cute!
McDuff gets a new neighbor from France!  She even barks in French!  
So, this page is a little worrisome.  Marie got in trouble for getting on the fancy furniture.  I sleep on the couch all the time.  Now, if this was a picture of Marie getting on the counter, I get it.  I know I'm not supposed to be on the counter, but I still do it.  But the comfy couch? Yikes. Marie's parents decided she had to go to school to learn how to behave.  McDuff's parents thought he should go as well.
The pups had a lot of homework to do from their school.  They even had to take a final!
A fun part of this book is the Glossary at the end.  They show what McDuff and Marie learned in French (with the pronunciation) and then defined in English.
I hope everyone had a fun summer.  Thank you for reading with me!

Flower Friday

Daisy and I wanted to show off my parents Plumeria tree. Daisy likes to sniff the flowers that fall during the night. 
It reaches their second story!
The look on Daisy's face cracked me up! It's like the leaves are going to get her!

Summer Reading With Daisy: The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry,and THE BIG HUNGRY BEAR

I know how much you all love strawberries, which is why I picked this book!  I even brought it to a real strawberry patch to tell you all about it.  The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and THE BIG HUNGRY BEAR is by Don and Audrey Wood.  They are amazing authors and illustrators.  
So, this little mouse finds the most perfect and juicy strawberry.
He knows all about the BIG HUNGRY BEAR and decides to protect this ripe strawberry. 
He tries to hide it and chain it up so the bear can't get it. 
The little mouse thinks even eating a little bit will prevent the bear from eating the perfect strawberry!

Well, I'm not going to tell you the twist with the mouse, strawberry, and the bear.  It's the best part of the story and I don't want to spoil it for you!  I will say this book makes you want to eat your very own red ripe strawberry after you finish it!
Happy Reading!
