Famous Landmarks and Twelve Puppies

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.

Yes. 12!!!

 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 :)


  1. That last pic is TO DIE FOR!!!!!! <3

    I love the project with the drawings...WOW!

  2. Those puppies! Oh my goodliness. Also, nice work on those landmark drawings, Lu!!

  3. Love the landmark artwork/flashcards--what a great idea! Definitely going to check out the geography site now.

    Twelve?!'re going to be busy! :-)

  4. Wow. All pics are so nice and adorable. It reminds me about my pet tukush. She is Lasaabso and very beautiful dog. My niece loves her so much, even she purchases doggy toys. Recently we purchase a board game because it involves, owning pets and feeding them. He is totally crazy about this game.
