I'm always asking where I can find some peace and quiet? If your student find it, I'd love to know! :)

Just adorable - as always. They are very literal..."who's counting?" "Me!" It's such a cool glimpse at the world from their perspective!

LOL, I love them as usual! The mismatched shoe picture is fun. I'm impressed that you knew what kind of dog the kid was thinking of when you said quirky!

Oh my these cracked me up. I bet you can barely keep from laughing when they say things like that. - Loved the mismatched shoe photo.

My favorites are the female dog, the backwards day comment and the can we get a corgi comment.
