Yes I think I have totally lost my mind. But a promise is a promise! You see when Kristofer was 3 years old a one of the teens in our church had a pet rat. Kristofer fell in love with it and has been asking ever since to have one. When he was 4 or so I told him that when he turned 8 yrs old that I would get him one then. Well the boy has a memory that is astounding and he remembered the conversation word for word!
So we have gotten him (George) and Jaron (Skunk) one each for their birthdays. They are sweet little things. Ok did I just say that? Uhm, yea I did! Why is it when we get a field mouse in the house I freak out and when we go to the pet store I fall in love with the little things like they are puppies or something. There is something wrong with that...I know there is!
As you can see from the smiles on their faces these two little guys are a hit in our house! Now the problem is is that Eli and Sara now want one too. Uhm...no I think 2 are enough for now.
crawdads (aka crayfish)
birds (cockatiel and parakeet)
Goodness what in the world are we thinking?!
