Bugs the Easter squirrel

Happy Easter! Today was very eventful. Mom and I were up before the crack of dawn to go to sunrise service, and Liz, the Chad, and Hunter came up in the afternoon. After a thoroughly exciting Easter egg hunt, Liz, Mom, Hunter, and I played Monopoly (longest game EVER, especially when you let a 3rd grader play banker), while Ralph and Chad supervised the smoker (ew). A baby squirrel, which had fallen out of tree, wondered up to Chad. We didn't touch it (rabies and whatnot), but he managed to get it into a bucket and we left it under a nearby tree with plenty of acorns. He seems to be doing okay. Meet Bugs, the Easter Squirrel:

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What better way to celebrate than by dying your dog's fur green?

Poor Hercules. Sadly, I think he's getting used to it. He had a green head for several months last year.

In other news, I have an interview at the high school on Wednesday. Whoo!

Happy Pi Day!

Today was Pi Day, and I almost didn't realize it. mental_floss has a post with lots of neat pi facts. I celebrated Pi Day by participating in a π Run, a 5K (3.14 mile) run - or walk, in my case - to help raise money for graphing calculators at a local high school. And then I went and had pizza and beer, completely negating all the health benefits. Oh, well. It was good practice for the Peachtree Road Race, which I'm hoping I'll be able to do this year.
