We need a no-maintenance pet.

As I sat at the breakfast table with Ruby and Molly going over Cubbies and Sparks verses for the week and recovering from a very busy Sunday, I saw a family of deer walking through our yard.  How do I know it was a family?  Well, I don’t know, but I like to think of it that way.  It was a family of five, actually.  We named them right away—Daddy, Mama, Ruby, Molly and Mack.  Ha!




Wonder if these deer would agree to follow me to Ruby’s school tomorrow?  This week is “Pet Week.”  When I read it a bit of dread washed over me, seeing as we have no pet and I do not want a pet.  The students get to bring in their pets to school to show to everyone!  Poor Ruby.  There will be more to blog about in regards to this “Pet Week,” so I will save it for later.  In the meantime, I will try and catch up with these deer to see what their plans are for tomorrow morning…or even Friday morning.  I’m flexible.  Ruby just needs a pet that I don’t have to do anything for.  Josh and Gran suggested that Ruby bring in Mack as her pet, but she wasn’t going for it.  If I had to make a list of how he is like a pet, she would be amazed!  He is like a pet monkey/dog/baby bear all in one.

  1. You aren’t the only ones without a pet. I had to keep a tadpole/frog here for a few weeks for my Timothy class. That’s the closest thing the girls are getting to a pet for a really, really long time. I gave that thing away to one of my students the week we were done with it.
