Furry Friends Linky Party

Yes, I know I am still teaching first grade for two months, but I have been having so much fun looking at these new second grade blogs I have been introduced to! Add those to the my long list of amazing first grade blogs, and I can barely tear my eyes away from the computer!

I decided to link up with the Furry Friends Linky Party over at Soaring Through Second.

I love any chance to show off pictures of my adorable furry friends!! So here's a little look at my household...

I always grew up with cats. My parents still have three cats right now. So when I moved into my first apartment on my own, I made sure it was pet-friendly! I didn't get a cat right away but one summer I ended up cat-sitting three cats for my uncle. Two of the cats were a little... catty. I did not get along with them. But the third cat was Ashley. She and I just connected. The other two cats went back to their home, but I ended up keeping Ashely and we have lived happily ever after since! We have been together for about 3 years. She is such a sweetie who loves to nuzzle! I just love her grey, lion beard!

Well after a few months, Ashley and I decided we needed a friend. Introduce: Oscar the kitten. I knew I wanted an orange tabby and Oscar did not dissapoint. He loves to drink water from the sink, climb into boxes, and thinks he's a dog. He's about 2.5 years old now.

Sometime down the road, the cats and I moved to a new apartment with boyfriend. Sometime after that we all moved out of the big city to a small town, where we bought our first house and built a fence around our big yard! We knew we wanted to get a puppy (neither of us had ever had a dog before!) and we settled on a chocolate lab. Here are some pictures of Bella when she was a puppy. She was 6.5 weeks when we got her!

I can't believe she was so small! Now she is almost 11 months and weighs 70 pounds! She loves to chase the cats, meet new people, and go for bike rides. We love her soooo much! (And the rumour is she might be getting a puppy sister this summer.... shhh!!)

Yes, we are a crazy animal family! But I love them and wouldn't have it any other way!

I promise to be back this week with some teaching-related stuff! I have some Spring Math Centers almost done and pictures of our Earth Day activities! Have a good night everyone!
