My husband and I took Aggie (wild one #2) out for lunch. A year ago this wouldn't have been possible with all her anxiety issues, but she's almost a 'normal' dog now and actually seems to enjoy going out in public. After lunch, we walked down to the waterfront, but it was blustery cold so we cut our stroll short. I know what you're thinking...blustery cold in July? You've no doubt heard the quote: "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco." Trust me.
|This is one of our dog beaches. Um, where's the beach?|
|Fort Baker's view of the Golden Gate. I never get tired of seeing this.|
|We didn't actually see the One Million Acts of Kindness guy, but it serves as a good reminder.|
|We're still eating salt water taffy. The cake batter flavor is amazing!|

Tuesday found me at the Lakeshore Learning Outlet. Who knew such a place existed? You have to hunt for the good deals, but they are there! Hours later, my daughter and I managed to fill two shopping carts with goodies for her new classroom.

I did do some work this week. Okay, it's not really 'work'. It's fun. I'm hooked on making brag tags for our fifth grade team. Here's just one of the MANY that I've made this week:
And what would summer be without MORE camping? The husband and I decided to try taking all three wild ones for a night up on the river. It went great, not at all what I had expected!
|The Wild Ones: Tucker, Aggie, and Gus. We NEVER get a picture like this with all three just chillin'. |
Getting these 3 to sit next to each other without wrestling is nearly impossible.
|It looks like Tucker (background) has fallen asleep while standing.|
Actually, he just hates being wet more than being gritty so he dries off in the sand.
|Gus handled all the water retrievals.|
|Aggie taking a much needed break.|
|Departing is such sweet sorrow. They're pleading for just one more toss.|
|Tuck obviously isn't ready to head back up to the campsite.|
|This little guy crawled through our site. Loved his enormous shadow.|
Phew, you made it to the end of my week. One more week of summer fun coming up and then it's back to Room 24. Which isn't a bad thing as I'm itching to get back in my classroom. For now though, I'm off to see what everyone else has been up to this week. Hop on over to Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera! and take a peek for yourself.
