We now have some beautiful fish living with us in the parsonage! Calvin and I were excited to get Kathleen a fish tank this month and one of the Gillburg UMC church members gifted us with a dozen fish to populate the tank - mostly Guppies and two pretty larger reddish orange fish. One of the guppies was pregnant when she came to come live with us, but has since had 7 babies and so far as we can tell 4 have survived. I was able to see her giving birth due to the fact that we came home late Friday evening the 14th from my sister in law's graduation from law school. It was really beautiful to see the momma swim around the tank and then go to the bottom corner to drop of 2 - 3 babies at a time in the rocks. The were born live and just laid there for a little bit to get their barrings the began to swim. They were so tiny and their bodies were clear so all you could really see well was their eyes. Kathleen loves watching and feeding the fish. We say hi and bye to them now with Rascal's greetings as we come and go from the house.

The fun part of this story is how Kathleen helped us to choose the bee costume over the lady bug and pirate options as well. She kept going for the bee costume first and threw it in the cart, but then grabbed the lady bug and put it in the cart as well and said "more" with her sign for more as well. She was asking for more costumes.
Daddy's comment is that we know we're in trouble with a little girl that loves shoes and costumes.
The pirate was a close choice with the fun foam sword. Kathleen was actually pretty good ad sparring with Daddy and squealed with delight when she was poked in the belly with Daddy's sword.
