Happy Birthday Sparky

The Sparkster turned one year old today. *sigh* My baby is all grown up.

I hosted a party for him in my classroom. Now, lest you think I'm one of those teachers who allows her kids "party" all the time, I need to inform you that these kids did some great research about dachshunds today as well as some rather difficult computing about the amount of money I've spent in dog food for the year, etc. This was all done so that they could "earn" the privilege of hosting Sparky's party during the last 30 minutes of our school day. It was great fun.

Here is Sparky enjoying his
"cake" of wet cat food. Cat food is a treat he hasn't been able to enjoy since we left Texas, and our cat, behind there.

And, here's one of me, looking rather tired yet blissfully happy surrounded by students and holding Sparky at the end of another exciting school day.
