Here he is, Kendall's grow-a-frog, Sam! He came to us as a tadpole, but now his tale is disappearing and his back legs are formed. Kendall and Noah check on his progress every single day and report to us what exactly is happening. Isn't he cute? And such an easy little pet...which is what I like!
Now this other science project, on the other hand, is a little more work! Last night Barry picked up our 2 week old baby chicks. Aren't they sweet? The kids (and the dog) are beside themselves with excitement! Kendall was up at 6:15 this morning, fully dressed and ready to go so she would have plenty of time with her chicks...yeah, she usually gets up at 7:45, so I wasn't all that happy to see her at 6:15!!! But anyway, here she is, bedhead and all...playing with her chicks!Kendall is a natural with animals (and bugs...and reptiles...). She spent the entire morning hand-feeding her chicks, checking the temperature in their box, and making sure they were all happy and not crowding each other.
I hope these are the last pets we'll be getting for a while. A dog, a cat, an ant farm, one grow-a-frog, 2 roosters, 2 hens, 11 chicks...it's a little much, don't you think? And to think Barry wants steers too...I'm tired just thinking about it!
