Lu can find pretty much any country in the world on a globe in seconds, and tell you what the capitals of many of those countries are. He has a solid grip on world geography, mostly thanks to this great site that he's been working with for a few years now.
This year, Lu is focusing on famous landmarks.
By the end of this project, he'll have 40+ flashcards
of important places in the world.
Here are some of them:
On the back he writes the landmark's name, location,
when it was built (if it applies),
and any fun facts he can find about it.
He's researching, developing his drawing,
and learning about some truly awesome human-made
and natural wonders in our world.

If you've been here before,
you probably know that we're dog-crazy.
Last year, we added Izoxa to our pack.
She grew into a big, strong dog.
And then she met Ocayo.
It was love at first sight.
Last Sunday, she gave birth to 12 puppies.
They get cuter by the day.
Lu was present for most of the three hours
that the birthing took.
It was an amazing experience.
There are few things as wonderful
as putting your face into a pile of twelve puppies,
or having your chin sucked by one of them.
We're in puppy heaven :)
