Tinich II

You might remember, from a few months back, our tragic chihuahua-adoption story.

Since then, Lu had been waiting for the breeder to fulfill his promise of giving Lu another puppy from the next litter. 

Two months turned into six months, ((during which my dog got pregnant and had twelve (yes, twelve) puppies)) and then, finally, Tinich II arrived!

She has now been with us for a week, and Lu has been an excellent caregiver from the get-go. Tinich is sharing our indoors with my boxweiler and her two lab-mix pups. In other words, she lives with three BIG dogs. Lu has to be extra careful with her because she's so tiny (which is what her name means), and he's doing an excellent job of it.

Birthday Week 2014

My baby boy turned 12!


When we started homeschooling four years ago,
we started a tradition of taking the whole week off
and having as much fun as we possibly can
for our birthdays.

Lu's grown SO much this year.

Here are last year's and this year's
pics of him reading his Bday card.

Here are some moments from our fabulous week:

Picnic at the Lake

With freshly squeezed orange juice by Lu


The Electric Guitar
(that he's been begging for all year and hasn't
stopped playing since he got his hands on it)


A Halloween Party

Sunday at our favorite BBQ & Pool


And missing are pics of Mega Sushi Feast, 
Ping Pong and Billiards Tournaments,
and Karaoke Birthday Night.

It was a BLAST!
