Pet update

It's been almost a full week and I thought I'd do a quick update...

The pets are a big hit. Arcadia runs home after school to feed her fish. We did get another goldfish so the first one didn't seem so lonely in that tank. She's proud of them, but wishes she could have a hamster. We told her that she'd have to wait until she's seven. She understands and is happy to be able to play with May.

Ken is absolutely in love with May. He carries her cage around everywhere. She's figured out the tunnels and is on the wheel most of the time. She loves to be out, but we don't let her go too far, just on top of the coffee table or bed. Ken gets to take her to "visit" the class tomorrow at school. We'll see how well that works out.

After so many discussions and debates, the kids now have their own pets (yes, that's plural).

Arcadia got a goldfish and promptly named her Julia. We got her a cute little pink Mermaid aquarium for the top of her dresser (our old one basically took up the entire dresser and being a girl, we need that dresser top!)

Ken got a hamster. She's a grey Russian dwarf. She's extremely soft and very cute. She also has the neatest cage!
