FISH FAILURE

If you can't tell what this is, it is yet another fallen fish of Zach's. I cannot even begin to recap how many fish we (I) have killed in the past 3 months. The last school of fish was purchased by Zach's gradma and papa from Omaha. They bought him 4 guppies and a cute little frog. You can only imagine his exctiement. Two of the fish died probably a week after they came to live with us. I found the frog floating stiff as a board just last week. Then sadly, this morning little, um, doesn't have a name, was found floating at the top. The funny thing is, Zach doesn't even bother naming them anymore and he also isn't all that broken up when they are found dead. So, there is one lone little guppie left in the tank. I told Zach when this one dies, which of course, is bound to happen very soon, we are done with fish for a while. His response was, "yeah that's okay because they just keep dying and so it's better to let them stay alive at the fish store." Wise words beyond his years. ha!

Jennie, I always love checking your blog because it is so entertaining. I had a talk with my girls about sticking small things in their noses after reading about Brooklyn. Now Avery is always repeating the story about the girl who stuck the shoe up her nose. So I think we are coming out to bless Evan June 13th. Hope you will be around. Love ya-

Oh no!!! I can't beleive your luck with fish. Dallin still has 4 out of the 8 goldfish nick & Kellie gave him for his B-day. Want one? They seem to be unkillable (I love making up my own words).

I killed a whole tank of fish. Even following carefully all the clean the tank, drops in the water rules. He's a smart boy! What's your shoe size? If your a 9 I can bring you some cute heels.

I am glad you enjoy my babies. Don't worry about having any more, you can just help with mine.

I thought that fish tanks kept fish alive. Ours last a day. The only one we had for a couple of months, my husband killed.
