Yep, It's Monday
Abby gave Zach one of her fish because he's been eating all of the other fish in her fish tank. Sooo, now we have a carnivorous, molly fish named Charley. My bird, Odie, has been giving Charley the eye, like he's thinking, "I'd sure like to have a bite of you,,,maybe,,,if you weren't almost bigger than me."
He's that big because he's been dining on all the tiny, delicate fish in his previous fish tank condo. I don't think Odie would stand a chance in a food fight with ol fat Charley. Sorry Odie.
The photo above is not a good one of Charley, I'll try to do a better one later, maybe when he's asleep or something. Do fish sleep?
This is a mouse house. MeriKate had to make a mouse house for a reading project so Jerri and I gathered up the stuff to help her to decorate her critter's shoebox abode. It's almost done, just have to put a little paint on a few more pieces of furniture and paint the mouse occupant.
That's the mouse in the upper center part of the photo. She hasn't been painted yet but we'll get to that tomorrow. We've decided to call her a hippy mouse because of the bright and colorful interior decoration theme. We considered giving her a bong but decided that might not go over too well in the second grade.
We have to finish this mouse house tomorrow because Abby also has the same assignment and we'll have to help with hers too. We're still thinking on the next one, and not sure what sort of house she'll have, but between the 3 of us, we'll think of something.
We sure are having fun.
I hope they don't have to do too many projects this year.
It's time to have some supper and afterwards, get Zach herded towards his bath and back to cleaning his room. He got half of it cleaned last night so I only took half of his stuff today.
This Nanaw made it through the day with 3 1/2 hrs of sleep last night and no nap. I think I'm gonna crash soon.
