Lucky Ladybug

A few weeks ago, we hosted Matthew’s class pet, Lucky Ladybug. Lucky comes home the weekend after a student is Star of the Week and includes a journal in which the student (and his hapless mother) record the myriad ways Lucky spends his weekend.

Oh, the pressure.

Clearly this journal gets read aloud to the class, because Matthew had very specific directions of what we needed to do. Here are a few of the pictures Matthew asked me to take of him with Lucky.


Lucky helped Matthew make a sticker gingerbread house.

And decorate the tree.

And goof around.

And play wii, while re-decorating the tree.

Lucky also kept Matthew company while he whiled away the hours on the couch, too sick with a fever to play.


Matthew really enjoyed having Lucky around for the weekend, but after spending the weekend snuggled up next to Matthew’s feverish self, Lucky needed a bath. I tossed him in the washing machine and sent an apology to the teachers.

And then I printed out a bunch of photos for the journal.
