A pizza reward

After helping Mama with a calendaring project that required intricate cutting and gluing, our big reward was ordering pizza delivery for dinner! Our food was delayed a very long time, but it was still nice to have dinner sorted. And it was delicious! Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was a great pizza reward! What was your #OneGoodThing…

A great day for the movies

Day three of a miserable 100°+ heatwave meant that Mama and I headed to the movies. Though we went for the cold air, we were not disappointed by our selection. “The Art of Racing in the Rain” was a fantastic, heartwarming film that had us running home to kiss our dog. Kevin Costner voiced the…
