Celebrate! I Don't Think We're in Kansas Anymore...

Friends, You can celebrate too!  Link up at  I thank Ruth for sharing her space with us. 

We got a puppy!  We got a puppy!  As I'm on my second cup of coffee this morning.  (Last night was a little rough.  We always say, "The puppy won't sleep in our bed."  And by 1 AM our resolve is gone and they are in bed with us.)

Let's have puppy overload pictures, shall we?

He's a rescue puppy of course, and he's a Cairn Terrier.  (Think Toto from the Wizard of Oz.)
There of course were a few shenanigans over where he was going to sleep last night, and his favorite hiding place is under the grill cover outside.  But overall, he's a good dog with a great personality.  We are totally smitten.  If you follow me on Instagram, I'm just sorry for all the puppy pictures.  Sort of.  :)

On the school front:  Oh the spring musical.  Man, am I so proud of these kiddos.  
We squished together all this hard work in just a few short weeks. I celebrate the teamwork of the teachers and students to make that happen!  I also celebrate music teachers.  Wow.  A renewed respect I have for the work that they do.  We are also in the middle of our spring celebrations!  (Auctions, Accreditation visits, Spring concerts.  And then there are like 21 days of school left.  Yikes!)
If you are looking for a good VBS, or a church musical; we loved "Down by the Creek Bank" by Dottie Rambo.  

I tried to link a little video here.  These were our K-4 friends.  I'm just so proud of them!
