Earth Science and Sustainability Week: October 9 - 15

“Once in a lifetime, if one is lucky, one so merges with sunlight and air and running water that whole eons, eons that mountains and deserts know, might pass in a single afternoon without discomfort.”
 - Loren Eiseley, The Flow of the River

Miss Dannard will commonly give the side-eye, known as the whale eye, if they guard something important to them, such as a bone, side eye dog mean, or their owners. Some refer to this look as “moon eye” or “half-moon eye” because half of their pupil is hidden in the outer corner with more of the whites exposed.

This type of car seat is designed for kids who have outgrown the weight and height limits of a convertible car seat.
