Homeschool Evaluation, A Puppy, And A Beta Fish
This is actually pretty funny. Yesterday was DJ's homeschool evaluation. It was hot, humid, and pouring rain when we left our home. By the time we came home it was stifling hot, and we had a fat, fluffy chocolate lab in the car with us. Wait a minute, we went for an evaluation, and came home with a puppy? Yep that is right. The evaluator had nine puppies, she needed to find homes for. I said no, no puppies. Well of course as soon as we looked at them, I wanted the chocolate one. So we took her home, gave her a bath, fed her some food, and she was playing, and getting used to our other dog. The phone rings, and my evaluator says the puppy has to come back, it was already promised to someone else. At least we were not attached to it yet. So I am thinking to myself, that is OK I felt so uprepared for a new puppy anyways. My kids, were upset, but back we take the puppy. They picked a blonde, blue eyed, with pink nose little girl puppy that we will pick up Labor Day weekend. Her name will be Biscuit, after some of Caitlin's favorite story books. I will be much better prepared by then, and it should go nice, and smooth. So how did we end up with fish? She felt bad for having us bring the puppy back, so he gave DJ a red beta fish, which he proudly named Ruby. So at the end of the day, we ended up with a great evaluation, a puppy, and a beta fish LOL. I am so glad we only do this once a year! Have a great weekend everyone!
