In my last post, I mentioned that I would start counting runners as they passed my house, well, I didn't. I found a better hobby...watching our new guppies and snails. Yeah, pretty exciting... You gotta love kindergarten pets needing a home at the end of the year. The other day, Emme asked if she could have a guppy (yep, I said "a" guppy, as in one/singular/uno...) so we went to school to pick it up and Polly (her teacher, first names only here at Edison) wouldn't let us leave with less than 5 guppies and just for fun, she threw in 5 snails too. So, now we are the proud owners of 5 guppies, 5 snails and 2 beautiful pieces of pond grass (?). Where are they living, you ask? Well, in my biggest Tupperware bowl of course...what else?!? Today we finally got around to naming them, Emme let Calvin name one fish and one snail, lets see if you can guess which ones:
Great Big Brother (GB for short)
Tata (like tater without the "er)
and Calvin Thomas Higgins
Needless to say, we are in search of a fish tank (at some point I might need that bowl) and are anxious every morning to see how many there are...hoping that none have died or worse, multiplied...maybe the title of this post should have been "5 & Counting".
