Happy New Year!

Pickles and Rufus have really enjoyed their holiday vacation. Pickles was allowed to stay up until midnight last night to bring in the New Year, but sweet dreams took over by 9:30. She and Rufus camped out in the living room in her new teepee all night. From the Pickering family to yours- Happy New…

Thanksgiving fun

Pickles had a great Thanksgiving holiday. She and Rufus really enjoyed having her grandparents there. Now it is back to school and soon it will be time to buy a Christmas tree!

Math test

Pickles has a big math test this week. She sometimes struggles with math so each night Dad will help her with her practice work. Rufus will nap by his best friend’s side as she studies:) Having him by her side is very relaxing and helps her concentrate.


Brrr, it’s chilly outside. Pickles decided that she and Rufus will play indoor games after school today. Rufus always wears his fur coat so he doesn’t mind cold weather….but he always wants to be with his best friend.

The zoo

Pickle’s class is at the zoo today. It is her favorite field trip! She really hopes to see the lions and the chimpanzees. Fingers crossed!
