While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

new addition to the family... rodent size
Megan has been doing such a great job cleaning her room, making her bed, and getting great report cards. We decided to reward her with a hamster. She has been wanting one for ever and we just didn't want to get one. Last night we picked her up from gymnastics and took her to petsmart. She held a chinese dwarf hamster and it kept jumping right out of her hands, it was so tiny. The guy told us those kind were good about not biting, but they were fast. Megan liked the winter white ones, but he said they are bad about biting. She wanted to hold one anyway. He got one out and it was so calm and it didn't bite her or the guy so he is the one we got. We didn't name him yet, I told Megan to get to know him a little bit first. I am sure the name will be corny. The hamster hasn't stopped running around. He loves the wheel. It is so fun to watch him.
I have 4 kids and a great husband that keep me busy. When I am not wiping bums or nursing a baby or cleaning messes or doing laundry or cooking dinner I like to crochet, do other crafts, or relax and read a book.
