My family and I went to the balloon festival this weekend. It was a beautiful day for a balloon launch (we were very lucky!). Troy loved seeing all of the balloons! When I asked him where the balloons were traveling to, he told me "The Cookie Store"!
I am excited to go again next year!
This picture was taken of Lily after she was running around our house! Doesn't she have a great smile?
FINALLY! It was Fall!
Fall is my absolute favorite season because it’s not too hot, and it’s
not too cold. I also love seeing
the beautiful foliage. This is
when the leaves change color. It
is like looking at a rainbow of leaves every day!
It was early October and I had just gotten home from teaching my fabulous first
graders. I had a really great day
with my students. I decided to go
outside with my dogs, Toby and Lily, for a walk in our neighborhood.
I got Toby’s leash on first. You have to really be fast with that little guy – he runs away. Lily is a better listener.
She will sit and wait nicely.
Sometimes we don’t even use a leash with Lily because she is such a good
listener. I finally managed to get
both leashes on the puppies and we were on our way! What a great day for a walk.
Suddenly, the wind began to blow. The
leaves started to swirl through the air.
It almost looked like a tornado.
Brr. Maybe it wasn’t as warm as I thought it was. A jacket would have been a good idea. As I was thinking about going home and getting a jacket for the rest of the walk, the wind began to push the leaves forward. Lily was amazed. After all,
it was her very first Fall! Lily
began to chase the leaves. First
to the right, then to the left. It
was like a cat chasing a mouse!
Too bad I didn’t have my camera with me. Mr. Scelia would laugh if he saw
SometimesI wonder who gets into more trouble, Toby or Lily.
What do you think?
This is a picture of Toby just after he joined our family! His ears are almost 3 inches long! He can hear EVERYTHING!
One day I was sitting in my room coloring pictures for a picture sort in my classroom. I was excited because
I was almost done with my centers for the month of May. I set down my crayons and went down to the kitchen for a glass of
water. When I got upstairs, I begin to color again. Suddenly, I realized that my orange crayon was missing. “Where could it be?,” I asked myself. I knew I had to find the crayon! I needed it to finish coloring a
picture of fruit. I looked under my nightstand and under the covers of the bed. I even looked under the rug. I didn’t find the crayon. I put my things away and decided to go to bed.
The next morning I woke up and said good morning to Toby. Quick as a cheetah, he zoomed under my bed. “What are you doing you silly puppy?,” I asked him. I
looked under the bed. Right before
my eyes was a half eaten orange crayon.
Beside the crayon was pieces of the wrapper! Oh no! Toby must have
thought the crayon was one of his favorite things – carrots!
I felt relieved that the crayon was found and Toby was not sick.
I learned that I need to be more careful around a curious little puppy
like Toby. I decided that next time
I would have to keep my crayons in a safer place when I was using

These are all of the funny and happy moments I share with my family at home! I like to write about them so that I never forget them. Every time I read them I am reminded of these special moments.
