Meet Doodle

After 6 months of asking for a pet, I knew she wouldn’t get over the idea. So earlier this month Daniel and I talked about how she could earn one. We decided that Dayla had to both show daily responsibility with no excuses for 2 weeks AS WELL AS earning the money.

Today she completed her tasks! Dayla earned and bought her very own first pet.

Well…you get the idea.

We are excited to have a new furry family member!


He did it. He is 16 months old and today for the first time he climbed our 4 ft. back wall, completely by himself. I think we are a mixture of proud, shocked, and worried. I feel like this should not surprise me since his first word was “UP!”
