One of the teachers I work with told us the story of her son and a lizard. He came in crying that he didn't mean to do it but he broke the lizard.
Well, Daisy now broke a lizard. She was playing/chasing/terrifying the lizard in the house and it's tail fell off.
The tail was not very interesting since it was broken. So, it thankfully was not added to the toy basket and was disposed of instead.
We've asked Daisy to not invite any more friends over to play unless she runs it by us first.

I told my first graders about a lovely woman named June. I first heard about her during a Christmas card exchange, in which she was showered with cards. She is turning 89 on June 1. My students said "I bet that's why her parents named her June!". We had a very touching conversation about "shut-ins" and showing kindness to someone none of us will ever meet. I set out paper if they wanted to make her a birthday card should they have extra time. This is one of the million reasons I love first graders...they all made her a card! Daisy is showing off some of the birthday cards the students were so happy to make for a kind stranger.

Our family went to Riverside National Cemetery this morning. This is the sight that greeted us at the entrance.
This is the view from where my Grandparents are interred.
Then, there is a parade of 7000 motorcycles all paying their respects. The streets and cemetery are lined with spectators. Some of the motorcycles had full size flags on them!

These treats came just in time. A little Wheatie pup has had a serious case of spring fever.
The zucchini stuffie was such a hit (and still has it stuffing!). I know Daisy is happy to add a carrot to her collection.
Now, the treat jar has been re-stocked and somepup is going back to manner school.

Daisy had a spa day with my parents. Here's the before...

The Santa Ana winds have returned. It's hot enough for a skirt but too windy to wear one. The wind brought lots of sniffs while the heat made for lazing around.
