More?

In case you're having trouble keeping track, here is a list of our current pets:
*1 dog - Brady/Guy/Fuzz/Dopey/Barkley/SirBarksALot/Fuzzaroo/Brader
*7 fish - I think, they keep coming and going and I just have lost track. I've stopped looking in the tank, to be honest
*? Racoon OR Squirrel (we're hoping not both)
*Many - Ladybugs - they're all over and Nora catches them and puts them in containers as her pets. Its great (she said with a hint of sarcasm in her voice).
*2 tadpoles

Re-read that list. Did you notice anything new? Yes, we now have 2 tadpoles and they are not in the fish tank. They live in their own little Planet Frog aquarium. Are we nuts? Um, yes, as a matter of fact, we are in more ways than one:) Actually I had bought this thing for the girls as a christmas gift - its a frog habitat, but you can send away for tadpoles and watch them turn into frogs. I thought this would be a wonderful little thing for all of us to watch together and since we have a book, From Tadpole to Frog, that we have been reading for years I thought the girls would really enjoy it. And quite frankly, I wanted to see a real tadpole turn into a frog. So we sent away for the tadpoles. They came in the mail on Thursday - and they are really icky looking. I was pretty creeped out by them at first and kind of regretted this fun decision that I made. However, we will have fun with it and when they turn into frogs, we will feed them 1 round of crickets and then let them loose in a pond somewhere.

And by the way, we haven't caught our racoon yet. Every morning at 6:00 I go out to check the trap and nothing is there. This is a good sign - it means that there are NOT babies in the house that the mom has to come back to feed every night. Whew! Life is good, eh?
