strange bedfellows

As you might expect, our cats do not really like our dogs, but the puppy is always trying to play with the cats.  However, two of our cats seem to have decided that William (the puppy) may not be as bad as they first thought.  A couple of times over the last two weeks, Natasha (our Siamese) has actually tried to play with William.  Usually by sitting in a chair, safely out of his reach, and playfully swatting at him as he walks by.  William thinks it's fun, but keeps trying to get her to come down on the floor and play.  Arthur (our big black cat), rarely runs from William anymore and has even kissed his nose a couple of times.  Then, the other day, Arthur was napping on a towel in the bathroom.  William came in and laid down really close to Arthur didn't do anything.  In fact, Arthur got up to get a drink about ten minutes later and then laid right back down in the same spot next to William.

shianne's poem

Shianne wrote this poem for school about a week ago. She did such a good job, I wanted to share it. She had to complete starter sentences about herself to create the poem.

Shianne Wolfe

Wishes to be able to swim underwater for a long time,
Dreams of becoming a vet someday,
Wants to do ballet on Pointe,
Who wonders how lollipops are made,
Who fears roller coasters and heights,
Who is afraid of creepy-crawlies,
Who likes swimming,
Who believes if you dance you live longer,
Who loves my brother,
Who loves my family,
Who loves chocolate,
Who loves dancing,
Who loves animals,
Who plans to be a good mother,
Who plans to live for a long time,
Who plans to do good next year,
Who will be remembered for my humor.
