Our neighbor finds caterpillars and helps keep them safe while they turn into beautiful butterflies. They’ve been sharing the experience with Lily and tonight she got to let one go.
When we got a puppy, we knew we’d have to train it, but I didn’t think trying to train it to go down slides at the park was going to be top of the list. Archie actually went down twice. It was a small slide, but you gotta start small. This was actually quite a […]
