Milo and Otis or Predator/Prey??

I've seen this twice now, so either it was a new chipmunk or the same chipmunk as last time. Which would mean it survived the first encounter. I'm not sure what to think here. Charlie didn't like us getting too close though because he warned us with a low growling sound. A toy or victim?? Hmmmmmmmm.....

First Day at Kindergarten

" I got lost at a different school" - Eli

Thats the bus that dropped Eli off at the wrong school on the first day Kindergarten and the first day ever of riding a schoolbus. It also dropped him off at the wrong location after school. It dropped him off at our house when it was supposed to drop him down the street. Imagine coming home after your first full day, after being dropped off at the wrong school, to an empty house void of Mom and Dad. We got back there quickly but , ......, still, it didn't help matters much. But in the meantime things have gotten better and thankfully there is no school bus phobia.

In an age where success may be dependant on technology and effective use of it, I have created this blog for my son, Eli. He is five. I hope that this will be an avenue for him to explore, learn, have fun, and excel in a way that many of us never knew as kids.
